Runner Tracking – 2 Options

NEW – Two options in 2017 for runner tracking

  • OFFICIAL RUNNER RESULTS can be tracked every 4-6 miles by chip

  • NEW FOR 2017!    Runners’ location and pace can be tracked via GPS  each mile through the RACEJOY APP .    

 

Tracking official race results from the chip

The chip in your bib (or baton) times your OFFICIAL RESULTS automatically on the course at mile 6.4, 10.1, 16.1, 20.1, 26.2, for the marathon and relay.   Mile 6.5 and 13.1 for the Half.   Mile 4.1 and 10 for the Urban 10.

  •  The runner enters family & friends pre race.   Updates are sent during the race to facebook/twitter, or text messages to up to 5 friends& family.
  • Sign ups will start shortly.   Note – you do NOT need to carry a phone – this is not GPS based.

Technology is not perfect!

We love technology. We know it works on our end – the sending part. But when we mix in different cell phone carriers receiving your updates of live results, or have cell phone areas that are limited, we cannot guarantee the person on the receiving end gets your update in a timely fashion.   For relays in particular – use these tools as a general guide for your last runner or two, but do not use it as a precise tool.
