Cuda Timing has been several years in the making.

It started as a “Daddy Daughter Racing Team” in 1996. Frank and Catherine Cuda ran in races all across Arizona. They have competed in races from 2 miles to 48 hours.

In 1999 Frank was asked to time an event and his wife and daughter gladly helped. For 15 years, the Cuda family has been timing races in the Phoenix metropolitan area and Northern Arizona.

Frank times over 20 races per year, with the help and support of his family. Frank and Catherine also certify for distance and accuracy.

Catherine has been race directing since 2008. Her debut event was race directing the longest consecutive 50K in Arizona at the time, “Just Another Mad Dog.” Catherine also holds the USATF Junior National records for the 30K, 20mi, 50K, 50mi, 12 hour, 100K, and 24 hour distances.

Fall of 2015 will be her 4th year coaching Varsity and Middle School cross country at a local preparatory school. She coordinates at least two meets a year, times them, and manages them with the help of Frank.

In 2015, Catherine made the decision to move to Oregon, every runner’s dream residence. Catherine and her soon to be husband, John Colgan, decided to continue the family tradition and time races in Oregon.

John is a local math teacher and is excited to bring his experience from many other fields to the timing business.

Catherine and John look forward to timing and participating in a variety of the many racing events in Oregon.
