A Better Virtual Experience:
Enhanced virtual racing experiences are here, race your course, stay connected with other racers and receive leaderboard updates that will happen in real time with the RTRT GPS mobile app. Download the RTRT app (on iOS or Android) and the week of the race you will receive an emailed link to connect your registration to the race with just a single click. When the race begins, open the RTRT app, find the race, click go. While you run on the course of your choosing, we will use your GPS speed and distance to place you on a common “Event Course” with all other participants; you will not only be able to see and track your position, but that of all other racers. Upon completion of your race – you will automatically be added to the leaderboard. All participants will be viewable on the Event Course in real-time. You can track yourself and your friends during the race. You will be guided through the race with custom audio prompts to keep you moving and engaged as you run! Check the leaderboard while the race window remains open and runners completed their race to stay update with leaderboard results.
If you are not able to run with the app, or a phone – contact the race and we can link manual race results, or connect Strava workouts, to the RTRT Leaderboard.
The race will be added to the app about 2 weeks before race day. You’ll receive an email when it is open are ready.
Please use a unique email address for each registrant. This will allow us to map 1 registrant to 1 runner account in the app.
You will need to run with your phone, and start the race within the app. Please do it – it’s such a better virtual race experience.
Pay attention to the race window – you must run within the given timeframe.
