FS Series is an event production company based in Raleigh, NC. FS Series held their first multi-sport event in April of 2007 and has grown to over 30 events in just 2 short years. The team is involved in triathlons, duathlons, cycling time trials, open water swimming, and running races.

In 2008 FS Series purchased a Winning Time timing system so they could not only race direct but time our events as well. FS Series can provide start/finish times and up to 5 splits for multi-sport events. Results are produced on-site for awards and age group competitors in a timely fashion. This move has made FS Series a full service event production company.
