This last weekend included the 24th year of the Maine Marathon race in Portland, Maine and many finishers took advantage of RaceJoy’s advanced GPS tracking. With more than 800 people using RaceJoy on race day, we had nearly 200 phones live tracked while completing the race.
Race participants and supporting spectators received real-time progress alerts at every mile on the course that included pace and estimated finish time. RaceJoy issued more than 5,600 GPS-based alerts illustrating that this is a highly popular RaceJoy feature.
The Maine Marathon is a historic race event that draws locals and people from all over the country. This race offers a beautiful course. No wonder it is on many runners’ bucket lists! Find more information about the race on the website.
Supporting spectators at the race site and also from the convenience of their home across the country sent more than 800 cheers in RaceJoy to encourage and motivate runners as they completed the course.
Special thanks to the race for requesting your race to be added in RaceJoy and for giving your race participants a new experience! Also, thank you to the participants and spectators who used RaceJoy. Together, we are changing the race experience!
