RaceJoy For Participants and Spectators
Event organizers are able to offer participants and spectators – those that are able to attend the event or remote spectators around the world- with an interactive race day experience. RaceJoy makes use of the advanced features available within participants’ phones. There is no added equipment required.
For Event Organizers
Offer a Big Race Experience
Participants and spectators now expect some form of tracking will be made available for most events. With RaceJoy, organizers can provide a big race level of experience for an economical price.
Organizers have an at-a-glance view of participants’ real-time positions, making it easier to identify potential issues or assist participants in need.
- Off-course alerts
- SOS feature where participants can immediately alert staff about issues
- Directional cues bolster a safer race experience.
Organizers can quickly communicate to individuals, groups, or all participants using text-to-speech technology. RaceJoy offers a valuable way to communicate urgent or important information directly to participants while they are on the course.
RaceJoy offers event organizers the ability to showcase sponsors by integrating their branding within the app, recognition with each progress alert, banner ads, and custom course map.
More Customization Options for Event Organizers
Timers who complete the RaceJoy Certification course are able to provide RaceJoy as an add-on service. Timers can also take advantage of RaceJoy’s backend tools like route replay and progress dashboards to verify questionable performance data and its race day monitoring dashboard to track the lead and tail and quickly identify any issue spots on the course.
