Half marathons continue to be a very popular race in the United States and appeal to runners of all fitness abilities. According to Running USA, the 13.1 is the second most popular running distance and 5Ks continue to be the most popular.

With such a high demand by runners, it’s no surprise that the majority of races available in RaceJoy this weekend are half marathons:

RaceJoy offers the most advanced form of tracking available in the running industry. With RaceJoy, participants and their supporting family and friends have access to live, real-time tracking of up to 50 participants on a map view in addition to progress updates provided at every mile on the course.

The live tracking feature utilizes the race’s official race course and notifies participants of their progress with information like pace and estimated finish time.

The GPS-based progress alerts are issued to the participants in audio format so they can get the information without looking at their phone. Spectators receive the alerts as in-app notifications. Spectators can also zoom into the interactive map to see the exact location of their runner.
