We are very excited to share the latest RaceJoy innovation – off course alerts! This will help race organizers to manage race day operations by seeing if they have a trouble spot on the course and help keep participants on the course route. Races can also request to have off course alerts issued in audio format to participants. We’ve launched this feature to respond to concerns shared with us from trail and ultra distance races. More information about this new feature is available in this press release.
RaceJoy is rolling out split pace alerts for those using GPS-based progress alerts. RaceJoy’s progress alerts are typically issued at every mile for running and walking events and every five to 10 miles for cycling and longer distance events. The alerts include information like location, elapsed time, overall average pace, estimated finish time, and now, current split pace time between the course points.
Users of RaceJoy have requested this feature be added so they could manage their performance during the race. By providing real-time split pace information participants can gauge if they need to slow down or pick up their pace to meet personal race goals.
The alerts RaceJoy issues are sent to participants in audio format. Click to hear a sample!
