Is "virtually" running not quite enough? Perhaps it's time to do a "real" race with Real-Time Remote Racing™ by RTRT.me, the leader in Real-Time Race Tracking for road races and multi-sport events.
Meticulously built, scalable, and engaging, this new feature of our platform offers some amazing capabilities. We are happy to report that many timers and event organizers who were unable to do in-person events are now busy putting on races again using Real-Time Remote Racing! Participants can run in the safety of their own neighborhoods and race organizers don't even have to leave the house!
However, this technology is not just for the pandemic era. It can also be used in timing of "in-person" events or with a combination of in-person and remote participants (aka "hybrid"). Since going live with this product, we've received incredibly positive feedback. Participants are loving the live experience. Timers and event organizers are telling us that this is a game changer!
Big thanks to you and the team for the Remote Race feature which has provided our company and our clients with the means to continue to engage with the runners that have been looking for an interesting interactive experience throughout the COVID WW lock outs. Remote racing has also allowed us to reach new clients and markets while our existing clients have realised that a race is no longer restricted to the local community but can reach out to athletes in other cities, states and even to other countries. As COVID restrictions ease, remote racing continues to give with the staging of hybrid races, offering alternatives to runners unable to make race day. I believe the future demands for remote racing will last well beyond the life of COVID-19.

Paradigm shifts do not come easy. That's why we have worked extra hard to make things as simple as possible for participants to adapt to this new way of racing. We did it by building user-friendly interfaces and by implementing features like Connect & Claim, aka magic links. Also, unlike virtual events, participants do not have to "submit" their results. We are receiving and processing everything in real-time. Participants are informed via audio cue that they have finished, results are available immediately along with an Interactive 3D Replay!
As always, during the race, our world-class battle-tested live results platform is at work providing tracking, live results, leaderboards, maps, timing validations & live scoring, finisher badges, stats, dashboards & more. Hey, please do not try to cheat! Cheaters are likely to get flagged by our constantly evolving proprietary neural network GPS validation system (that we've affectionately named "Clever Girl!").
Real-Time Remote Racing brings the race day excitement to the participant wherever they are! What kind of event will you create? Contact us.
