How can I use RTRT.me?

Participants & Spectators: If you are a Participant or Spectator of a particular event, please contact your event director or contact us to find out if RTRT.me services are available.

Hundreds of thousands of participants and spectators use RTRT.me every month. Perhaps you've seen our logo in a tracker, or maybe you've downloaded the RTRT.me Mobile App. Often, RTRT.me is working behind the scenes to power API's or rebranded experiences for event partners.

Event Directors & Timers: RTRT.me services are currently offered as "invite only" to a limited number of affiliates. Our goal is to open the platform to a larger audience soon. If you are an event administrator or timer who would like to be considered as candidate for invitation, or to be added to our mailing list, please contact us.

What's New?

Something to Cheer About

RTRT.me debuted a new service at the 2016 Chicago Marathon. We provided a campaign featuring a large display showing "messages of inspiration" as participants crossed a timing mat near the 16 mile mark.

Nearly 40,000 cheers were submitted via web and at expo kiosks. Administrators approved "appropriate" cheers via our console.

Cheers were timed to appear at an optimal viewing location according to the speed of the individual runner crossing. All cheers submitted were also sent to participants via email.

We really love this new feature and hope you will too. It was an amazing feeling to see so many happy faces!

Run for Charity

We'd like to give special mention to a few wonderful events that we are lucky to work with each year. These events are special to us because they operate non-profit to raise funds and awareness for important causes.

Participants, please check out these events. Sign up if you can make the trip, you won't regret it!

Real-Time Event Apps​

RTRT's UK based timing partner TDL Event Services used RTRT.me to produce the 2016 Cardiff University Half Marathon Mobile App. The app was installed by over 15K users and received rave reviews--5 stars in the UK Apple App Store and a 4.2 rating in the Android Play Store.

RTRT.me has been providing services to power marathon mobile apps since founded in 2010. In fact, the first RTRT service was a highly-scalable real-time API for a mobile app used in the 2010 ING NYC Marathon. Events like the TCS New York City Marathon (2010-2016) and the Chicago Marathon (2013-2016) continue to use RTRT APIs for this purpose.

In 2014, we released our own Mobile App which has been used by hundreds of events worldwide.


We are humbled and honored that RTRT.me was used to provide tracking, scoring & final results for the 2016 USA Olympic Marathon Trials.

Thousands of spectators used the RTRT tracker to follow the best-of-the-best in the US as they cruised through each lap to a dramatic finish.

The top 3 men and women would go on to represent Team USA at 2016 Olympics in Rio.

RTRT.me was used to produce all of the real-time reports required by the USATF officials onsite. When the finishers were in, everything was verified against the camera system. The final official results by RTRT can be found on the USATF website.
