School teacher by weekday and timer by weekend, Lynn has been an irreplaceable member of our team! Completing multiple sprint triathlons and runs, she has experience as an athlete, volunteer and now an event timer. Lynn received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Connecticut and currently teaches middles school Spanish.
There is also a good chance she's brought some amazing snacks for the timing table - maybe if you're nice enough we'll share.
Ken brings some legitimacy to our claim that we're all 'athletes'. After an impressive four year college cross country career at Bates College, Ken claims fame for a 14:50 5K PR and a win at the New England Small College Athletic Conference 10K.
We're glad that he's fast and understands the running world inside out because pop-up tents and collapsable tables are still a struggle for him. If you see him at a race you better hope he's in at TPNE t-shirt and not his running shorts.
We are runners. We are triathletes. We are cyclists. We are swimmers. We are mountain bikers.
We have a knowledgeable staff with experience in all types of racing including running events from 5K's to marathons, triathlons from sprint to full Ironman distances, mountain bike races, criteriums, cyclocross & adventure races. We do event timing because we love racing. Our goal is to make every race a great experience for each racer.
Based out of Central Connecticut, we serve the entire New England area.
Our resident cycling expert, Henry has completed numerous mountain bike races, crits, cyclocross events and begrudgingly triathlons. He's completed a marathon, 2 half Ironman triathlons and many short course cycling and running events.
After 7 years in the Army, his organization, timeliness and task oriented attitude is invaluable as one of our most experienced Lead Timers. When he's not timing events he is working at a local bike shop.
A triathlete and avid runner it didn't take more than two months in a cubicle for Amanda to realize that her passion for racing could translate to full-time timing position.
In the past several years Amanda has completed several marathons posting a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon in 2012, 5 half Ironman triathlons and two Ironman triathlons. She's proud of a sub-20 minute 5K PR and winning the jump rope contest in elementary school.
“We've got an unbelievable team. I'm thankful every weekend to have a great staff that truly cares about the athletes we're timing. They get up early and work hard to make sure things go smoothly for your event. Don't worry if you see us dancing along to the music or hoarding Halloween candy - thats how we work best, come say hi and get to know us."
Amanda Bayer, Events Coordinator
