About Run the East


Run the East, LLC was founded by James Orr, a former owner of East Carolina Road Racing. Our goal is to time and manage first-class events, providing runners with an excellent experience from start to finish.

We have been professionally timing races since 1999 and have timed or managed some of the area's largest and most successful events.

James ("Jamie") Orr is the founder and owner of Run the East. He specializes in chip timing many of our events and also serves as race director for our RTE Signature Events.

Jennifer Orr assists with timing at several races throughout the year and also handles many of the behind-the-scenes things that go into timing and managing our events.

Brian & Rebecca Taylor assist RTE with race timing. They can be found at many of our events each year, providing both chip and manual timing services. Brian is also the manager of Omega Sports in Greenville.
