To get your race loaded into RaceJoy, just go to RaceJoy’s website and select Offer RaceJoy. The Set Up wizard will walk you through the rest, starting with adding a brief race summary and basic race information, then enabling your courses and loading your course map(s).Picture1

3 Steps for Advanced Runner Tracking:

  1. Create Race
    • Load your race information such as the race date, location, start time, race summary, race URL, course details and official race logo.
    • Add your event/course(s): Such as marathon, half marathon, 5K, etc.
  1. Enable Your Events
    • Select the courses you’d like to enable in RaceJoy.
  1. Add Course Map(s)
    • Upload a KML or GPX version of your event/course(s) so RaceJoy can build an interactive course map.
    • Customize your map with points on the course like water stops and entertainment.
For those who need assistance, we’ve added some helpful how-to videos for map building and exporting files.Picture1

You are all set after loading your course map! RaceJoy will send an email notification when the race is RaceJoy Ready. This typically takes about two weeks.

Just make sure if there are any changes to your course prior to race day, to modify your map(s) in RaceJoy so that your participants have a positive experience on race day. Most importantly, use the tools in the promotion corner to let your participants know tracking is available for your race.
