From Florida to Utah and Louisiana in between!
This past weekend RaceJoy was available at a lot of races, but three stood out with high usage from participants and spectators. These races showed that runners, walkers and spectators alike are embracing RaceJoy’s advanced tracking and cheers, opting for a special race day experience.
The three races that had the highest RaceJoy usage last weekend were:
RaceJoy provides an innovative race day experience with interactive features like live, real-time tracking, GPS-based progress alerts at every mile, and Send-a-Cheer.
The highest usage award this past weekend goes to Zion Half Marathon in Zion Canyon, Utah. The race organizers provided RaceJoy as a free service to participants and spectators by choosing the RaceJoy buyout option. Clearly, this was appreciated because more than 350 runners were tracked on race day and nearly 1,100 people at Zion Half used the app over the course of the weekend.
Across all three races, close to 11,370 GPS-based progress alerts were sent out! Zydeco Marathon took the lead, with more than 5,600 alerts sent. The progress alerts are sent at every mile along the course based on the GPS locations of the participants using their phones as trackers. People sent thousands of cheers over the weekend showing encouraging support to runners.
The Gate River Run was one of the first races to offer RaceJoy back in 2014. It’s exciting to see nearly 1,000 people came back to experience all that RaceJoy has to offer since first being launched to the race industry.
Thank you to all of you for embracing RaceJoy this weekend and congratulations on a great race! We enjoyed tracking you at such beautiful race courses!
