New LiveTrail® app for runners and spectators
LiveTrail4runner new app for runners: notification of their position, race time, kilometres run and remaining at each check point;
It has also a SOS and abandon function, which will improve safety for the runners. In the case of SOS, this function allows the runner to his GPS coordinates by text to the race HQ who can then coordinate help.
With LiveTrail® app, supporters, friends and family will track every move of their runner.
The advantage of following via text messages: being notified when a runner passes a check point; the text messages are sent to all phones/smartphones in the 3 countries, even if you do not have a “mobile” roaming package.
This GPS system provides real-time geolocation information & statistics. You can use the GPS function to locate the runners.
All runners have the possibility of renting a small GPS tracker (70g) so they can be followed throughout the course. Placed in their back-pack, it allows their family and friends to follow them live on a PC, Mac, tablet or Smartphone.
