About Us

THE CONFLUENCE OF TECHNOLOGY AND SPORT

ARE Event Productions is an endurance event timing, technology, and full-scale production company based in Albany, NY. We have provided services to over 1,500 races across the U.S. and Canada, including national championships, the Nike Women's Series, and the NYC Marathon.

A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE

As event directors ourselves, we understand that attention to every detail is vital. To that end, we are a vertically integrated company consisting of software developers and event producers that can provide timing with live tracking, logistics, entertainment, equipment, and more. And as authors of our own timing, registration, and event management software, we have the in-house technical skill to confidently and flexibly deliver a first-class immersive experience.

Our Team

We are dedicated, cohesive, and absolutely love what we do. When not putting on events, find us participating in them or on endurance adventures together.
