Runner tracking will be available on race day, allowing spectators to follow friends and family by receiving real-time text message updates and splits. You can electronically track multiple runners on the course by entering athlete bib number or name on the website. Updates will be received as runners cross the 10K, 13.1-mile, and 20-mile checkpoints, as well as the downhill finish line.
By tapping into the power of your smartphone, you can follow your runner’s progress in real-time as they run their race. The RaceJoy app, provided by Sports Backers, delivers live tracking, GPS progress alerts, race specific information, and the ability for family and friends to send cheers from anywhere in the world! This will require your runner to carry a smartphone throughout the event.
Set up Participant Tracking if you would like to be tracked.
Set up Spectator Tracking if you would like to track someone.
If your runner is wearing a Garmin running watch, and carrying their smartphone, they can turn on LiveTrack via their Garmin Connect app on their phone. This allows runners to share their live location with friends and family via email, Facebook, or Twitter.
If your athlete is running iOS 15 or higher on their iPhone or watchOS 8 or higher on their Apple Watch, they will be able to share their live location with you before setting off. Follow this step-by-step guide to enable live tracking. This will require your runner to carry a smartphone, unless they have an Apple Watch with cellular service.
Strava’s Beacon app works with most modern Garmin running watches and Apple Watches newer than the Apple Watch Series 3 and allows runners to send a live tracking link to three different contacts. This will require your runner to carry a smartphone, unless they have cellular service for Apple Watch. Click here to send a Beacon.
