The combination of live event tracking and automatic leaderboard updates provides your online audience hours of addictive entertainment.

For organisers the live tracking adds an increasingly important layer of safety and participant management.

Whether it be a 10K run or ultra marathon, event organisers can hire our bespoke PDA units that can be used to scan bib numbers at checkpoints and finish. The times are sent to the website for viewers to see live times and leaderboard during the race.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, route information, elevation profile, athlete and checkpoint photos can all be integrated into your live tracking page.

To help raise awareness and increase donations, you can provide JustGiving links and these will be included with the athlete timings. The total amount raised can be collected from JustGiving on a regular basis keeping online viewers up to date with donations.

Our platform allows integration with YB and SPOT GEN3 trackers; some adventure races get the best of both and mixing locations from GPRS and YB devices.
