Everyone loves a sale, so what better way to start off the New Year than offer a 20% discount on RaceJoy’s buyout prices, now until March 31, 2016. This promotional price makes advanced runner tracking affordable for any race. Races who purchase the RaceJoy buyout deliver a cutting edge race experience to participants and spectators that includes free live GPS tracking, GPS-based progress alerts, and fun audio cheers. In addition, sponsors offering RaceJoy are provided with a new and effective vehicle for reaching a broader consumer base.
RaceJoy’s buyout pricing varies and is based upon the number of participants and the course distance:
Flat Buyout Pricing Discount (Total Participants Across All Events)
*Call for events larger than 15,000 participants.
RaceJoy’s key features include:
- Live runner tracking on a map view
- GPS-based progress alerts at every mile,
- Send-a-Cheer, including new Text-to-Cheer
- NearMe alerts
Race participants carry their phone during the race to experience these interactive features.
In addition, RaceJoy continues to offer the free-to-the-race option in which the participant and spectator pay 99 cents for these features at a given race.
According to the Running USA’s 2015 National Runner Survey, 57% of runners are now carrying their phone while running, increasing the opportunity to utilize the phone’s GPS capability as a tracking mechanism. RaceJoy taps into this tracking capability to provide live GPS tracking on the course map and GPS progress alerts as they cross mile points on the course. Race organizers offer RaceJoy to round out their official race timed results information and expand the race experience to embrace spectators from the race site or remotely.
“What amazes us is the incredible adoption we see when races provide RaceJoy for free. The number of runners and walkers carrying their phones during a race continues to grow and participants now expect races to provide some form of runner tracking. RaceJoy helps races to stand out and show that they are offering the current technology and a very different and improved race experience,” said Bob Bickel, Founder of RunSignUp.
