WHAT WE DO

We partner with our clients and take a vested interest in the success of our client’s events.  We will be there with you every step of the way to lend our expertise to manage and consult with you in all areas of your event from, permitting, security, vendor management, volunteer management, course management, timing and scoring, registration, marketing strategy, sponsorship development, and participant experience.

SAFETY

As one of our Core Values, HAL Sports is one of the few event companies to be fully trained in both emergency medical and crisis management. All HAL Sports teams are AED/CPR certified as well as extensive training in crisis situations (in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, Fire Departments, Police Departments, Weather, etc.).  While the majority of the time, events go one without any major issues. HAL Sports is your partner to help your event be as safe as possible if something were to take place. We also work with you on preparing emergency and crisis management plans to ensure your event is as safe as possible.

EVENT MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING

Planning and managing endurance events can be, and usually, is very overwhelming.  There are many moving parts.  We are here to consult with, as needed or even manage the logistics for you from permitting, logistics, vendor management, volunteer management, course management, etc.  We are vested in managing a great event for you and being a resource to assist you along the way.  Our team is comprised of some of the most experienced event operators and race directors responsible for many the most well-known and organized events.  We will lend our expertise in all areas of event planning and management. Let us help you take your event to the next level.    

TIMING/SCORING

Timing/scoring of events is not as simple as just getting your participants’ starting and finishing information.  Much more goes into successfully timing an event with multiple distances, starting areas, and configurations.  Understanding the event is crucial for the timing/scoring team to ensure your participants are scored and timed correctly.  Our team has timed/scored some of the most complex events in from events with simultaneous multiple starts, to complex triathlons, to world-renowned complex stair climbs. HAL Sports also offers the latest technology in online results including our mobile responsive results website and App that enables participants and spectators a direct link to their results. 

REGISTRATION MANAGEMENT

We manage all your participant data for you, including inquires by participants and potential participants.  This reduces yours and your staff’s time so time can be spent on other areas related to your event.  Our management of registration is there to ensure the best data integrity as well as ensure participant ease when registering.  

MARKETING STRATEGY

There is no shortage of endurance events on any given weekend. In the last few years, the supply of endurance events has tripled.  It is very difficult to not find a weekend where there aren’t several events taking place.  How can you compete?  How can your event be seen?  We are here to assist you in your marketing strategy as well as many marketing inclusive opportunities only available to Hal Sports clients

Our experience is in many types of events and distances from ultra-marathons, stair climbs, triathlons, and all distances and events in-between.  We don’t believe in shortcuts!  No event is too small or too large.

Thank you!

I cannot say enough how much I appreciated your understanding and patience while I put on these races for the first time. Many questions I had that were months unanswered- you guys either had an answer for, or already had that task taken care of. Believe me when I say, working with Hallucination was the most relieving part of FIBArk.

Outstanding!

As race director for the Cottonwood Classic 5K and the WinterFest 5K, I’ve worked with Lonnie for the last 10 years and I can honestly say that they are outstanding to work with! They have been the most professional and skilled scoring company that I have worked with in my 33 years of planning races. I used to dread the time at the end of the race when multiple people would approach me with scoring problems, but I can honestly say that Hal Sports has virtually eliminated these issues!

Great Work!

One of the best decisions we've made is to hire Lonnie and his team from Hal Sports! We didn't just need a great timer. We needed someone who could consult with us and help us avoid landmines - someone who knows the ins and outs of the industry and can help our event succeed. Lonnie is the perfect fit! He has gone out of his way to help us and has been so terrific to work with that we can't imagine doing this without him!" - Paul Sampson, Event Director, Dallas Vert Mile

HAL Sports Testimonial

We have worked with HAL Sports for the past 3 years. During our 1st year, Lonnie offered his expertise without hesitation. I would not hesitate to recommend HAL Sports both for their overall event expertise and as the provider of the timing for any event large or small. You can expect amazing attention to detail, first class customer service, immediate response to questions of any kind and in the end you may end up with a new friend too.

Testimonial

We have been using HAL Sports for our timing for the past 9 years. They have always done a great job and have been very generous with their racing industry knowledge. Lonnie has also been our announcer for the past 5 years and definitely knows how to work a crowd.
