Maine Marathoners Use RaceJoy’s Advanced Tracking

Picture1

This last weekend included the 24th year of the Maine Marathon race in Portland, Maine and many finishers took advantage of RaceJoy’s advanced GPS tracking.  With more than 800 people using RaceJoy on race day, we had nearly 200 phones live tracked while completing the race.

Race participants and supporting spectators received real-time progress alerts at every mile on the course that included pace and estimated finish time. RaceJoy issued more than 5,600 GPS-based alerts illustrating that this is a highly popular RaceJoy feature.
