Welcome to ARE Event Productions

ARE Event Productions is a full-time timing, technology, and event management company. We are based in Albany, NY and also operate out of Washington DC via RunWashington Timing and out of Madison, WI via In Focus Timing. We offer online registration services on our ZippyReg.com platform, offering a single page dynamic registration system with functionality you will not find anywhere else.

We are thankful for our ability to service events both within our Capital District community and beyond, having assisted over 800 races in the past 7 years spanning 20 states, Canada, and Bermuda. We time events of all sizes and types, and have provided results for such events as the 25,000 participant San Francisco Nike Women's Half Marathon and USA 12K National Road Racing Championships, along with many other national championship events. With a highly trained staff composed of individuals who are athletes themselves, you will be hardpressed to find another team with our energy, expertise, and involvement in the sport.

Promoting the Sport on all sides of the Finish Line

The Albany Running Exchange is our community running organization through which we facilitate over 2,000 group runs annually. We also manage the ARE's 15 week Summer Trail Run Series, direct several races and an adult Trail Running Camp, as well as sponsor a racing team. In 2014, we introduced our highly popular New Beginning's Women's Running Program.

Over the years we have partnered with corporations for Employee Wellness Programs, assisted with kids running programs, and much, much more. We look forward to providing more opportunities for those in our community.
