Kensington Marathon Delivers Mobile Results in RaceJoy!

2016 KM Logo-01

­­­­This past weekend the Kensington Marathon in Milford, Michigan offered RaceJoy as part of its service for participants and spectators. Runners and supporting friends and family were treated to RaceJoy’s advanced GPS tracking, every mile progress alerts and cheers. In addition, the race delivered scored results through RaceJoy providing participants with quick and convenient access to their finisher information.

The Kensington Marathon is one of the first races to offer RaceJoy’s mobile delivery of results through RunSignUp’s Race Day Results and uses Agee Race Timing for scoring the event. At this year’s race, organizers took advantage of delivering results through multiple platforms – including the race website, RunSignUp’s site, and now through mobile with RaceJoy.

RaceJoy’s mobile results are displayed in a user-friendly way, allowing participants to quickly see Overall Results, Age-Group Division results, and Individual results. This creates an efficient way for timers and race organizers to get results data out to finishers. Especially since one of the first things people tend to do after a race is look at their phones!

Supporting spectators, both onsite and from the convenience of their homes, were also able to track participants in real-time with RaceJoy’s live phone tracking feature. RaceJoy’s live tracking allows spectators to see exactly where a runner is during the race by tracking the participant’s phone and displaying their location in an interactive view of the course.

Participants and spectators could also receive RaceJoy’s GPS-based progress alerts that were sent out at every mile! These updates include performance information like pace, current location and estimated finish time. RaceJoy issued almost 2,300 progress alerts across the multiple courses!

Participants have the option to post these alerts in real-time to their personal Facebook and Twitter walls.
