Overview and History

Overland Timing was established in 2016 in the owner's hometown of Rochester, New York, but relocated to Central Maryland in early 2017. We love our new home state and plan on staying for a while!

Meet the Owner

Founder & Owner, Melissa Kauffman, was born and raised in Rochester, New York. She is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, serving four years of active duty working in aircraft maintenance. Following her service, Melissa attended Georgia State University and received her bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Administration, specializing in Event Management. After graduating from GSU, eager to explore the world and get out of her comfort zone, Melissa moved to South Korea and later Hong Kong to explore parts unknown.

It was in Hong Kong, a world-renowned mecca for competitive sports events where she was first introduced to race directing and race timing, helping a colleague organize and time ultramarathon trail races. She quickly fell in love with trail running as well as with the fun, exciting, and rewarding business of creating and managing race events. Inspired by these experiences, Melissa set her sights on launching her own race timing and race directing company back in the states. And the rest is history!
