Official Mobile Race Experience From Any Location
We are incredibly excited to announce RaceJoy is now available for location independence events. Virtual event organizers can now offer RaceJoy for both location independent and defined course route race experiences for participants of running, walking, cycling, and water events. RaceJoy delivers an official interactive race experience that supports the social distancing needs of today’s climate while providing real-time engagement with participants.
RaceJoy’s key features include live phone tracking of participants, remote spectator cheer sending, audio progress alerts at every mile, and virtual scored results. Race organizers are able to actively engage with participants through custom audio messages that play as the participant completes their event and through direct communication tools. With more than a million users, RunSignup’s RaceJoy is the industry’s leading mobile race application and is available through RaceDay Certified timers.
Virtual races can offer RaceJoy for events that are location independent along with providing defined course routes for a single day or expanded amount of time. RaceJoy Anywhere enables location independent participants to feel connected and part of an official race experience.
Whether completing the course from home or at the race site, RaceJoy features are similar with the ability to have friends and family track the participant’s phone position and send audio cheer messages. The participant can manage their performance with continual audio progress alerts that are sent at every mile and include pace and estimated finish times. Those on site have the added benefit of off course alerts, access to an interactive course map, and directional audio cues.
Race organizers are able to further their official race experience with automatic user submitted results in RaceJoy by enabling RunSignup’s free Virtual Results bot. As the participant completes the designated finish distance or on-site finish line, RaceJoy automatically submits the participant’s finish data. This is then displayed in the results area of RaceJoy and other predetermined results outlets such as the event’s Website.
Virtual races create an official race experience in RaceJoy using custom branding and content components and an in-app race news system. In addition, organizers are able to create an experience that is uniquely theirs by adding distance-based audio messages to play as participants complete milestones. Those with defined course routes can add geo-based audio messages, including directional cues, pointing out local sponsors, and other points of interest. Race organizers are also able to communicate directly with individuals in audio format and track the progress of participants from their race day monitoring dashboard.
