The clocks you see in races vary considerably in price: from around
$500 for a mile-marker clock to over $2000 for a full-featured
The more expensive finish-line clocks are two-sided, have 9 or 12-inch
high digits, count up or down, have nearly a full 360-degree field of
view, and have many modes of operation.
The cheaper mile-marker clocks were designed to be placed at the
mile-splits of larger races, but can be used at the finish line of
small running events (such as club races). These clocks are limited in
versatility because they are only single-sided, have six-inch high
digits, only count up, and do not have as wide a field of view.
Of course, there is some crossing over between these two clock types.
For example: you can find single-sided finish-line clocks with 6-inch
digits, but these usually cost over $1000 because they have a wider
field of view and multiple operating modes.
