Engage your spectators with our athlete tracking services offered in conjunction with on-course split points. Spectators can track participants either by name or bib # and then watch the race unfold on their computer or mobile device. Expected times for future checkpoints are given to help spectators with their cheering duties on course..
Mobile, tablet and desktop friendly our live leaderboard automatically updates itself as your participants reach each split point and finish line. Leaderboards can include Top Men, Top Women, or any categories your event may have. You can even create categories for sponsors, locals, vip, etc. The live leaderboard and athlete tracker can be embedded on both your event website and Facebook page.
Provided in conjunction with our athlete tracking services the social notifications feature allows participants to have their progress posted live to their Twitter account during the event and for spectators to receive notifications to their Twitter account of their athletes progress. The posts are customizable and can include your event branding or a sponsors branding, which can create great brand recognition while your event is taking place.
If your event is being broadcast live on-line we can provide your video production company with a live data feed of the timing data from the event. This allows them to include a clock time in the video, leaderboard information, and pace of the participants.
This on-course screen displays submitted 'cheers' from spectators for their athlete to help encourage them towards their goals! Post event all cheers are emailed to the participants in case they didn't see them during the event.
Race Day Timing Results Platform
Our website and results platform is designed and developed in-house and we don't use third party software to host your results. This allows us to build innovative features and ensure that the results are delivering the information your participants want in a display that is easy to use.
The site is cloud hosted with a load balanced setup which allows us to automatically scale to meet the demands on high traffic race weekends. Finally, we've designed with a 'mobile first' approach acknowledging that 65% of our traffic is viewing the site on a mobile device.
Feature-rich Results Pages
The results pages are thoughtfully designed to include all of the information required plus a number of extras that participants can dive into such as top performances, event statistics, team results, past results, age group/course records, goals, results claiming, photos/videos, finisher certificates, social sharing and athlete tracking.
If you organize a series of events we can create a series results page for you that highlights your event schedule, links to the results for each event, and calculates your cumulative series points for both individuals and teams throughout the series. The series pages also display your course and age group records, and most prolific racers.
Team scoring, including cross-country team scoring, is done automatically as results are streamed into our platform. For cross country races this means that coaches and spectators can see team scores as the event progresses. For other events with team categories this means that team results are available immediately and are displayed in the same mobile friendly format as the overall results.
Our team is passionate about the event space and we want to see the events we work with succeed. If you want to discuss a new idea or have questions about the event you organize, simply give us a shout. We are happy to help you brainstorm, connect you with appropriate suppliers or people, or troubleshoot an issue you are having.
