Our Start

It’s About Time began in 2001 when John Lehman recognized the need for quality and cost-effective timing of races in the upstate of South Carolina and surrounding areas. At one particular race that he was directing, the timing company failed to be able to produce awards for the race. So, rather than having to worry about that happening again, he decided to figure out how to time his own races. He and his children put effort into learning how to manually time races. At first, they timed only the races John directed, but as time went on, people began asking if he and his children could time other races in the community. This led John to start the timing company It’s About Time. Word spread about It’s About Time, and since then, they have expanded into timing as many as 5 races in a day, 50+ races a year.

Our Recent History

In 2014, John Lehman’s son and son-in-law, Cody and Ben, helped expand It’s About Time to begin offering secure online registration for races and chip timing. In the past, It’s About Time used third-party websites to help event planners register runners and take payments for races. Now, It’s About Time offers a one stop shop for all race needs. From certifying courses, to registering runners and taking secure online payments, to timing the race (manual or chip), to posting the results, It’s About Time can help make your race a success from start to finish.
