Corrigan Sports and Mettle Events will provide free runner tracking and results to runners competing in the 2016 Baltimore 10-Miler.
Runners will be able to receive tracking messages via: text messages to their mobile phone, or posts to their respective Facebook or Twitter accounts. Families, friends and fans can also register to use this helpful information to follow their favorite runners and reunite with them in Celebration Village on race day.
Alerts will be sent after a runner crosses over mats on the course that trigger the embedded timing chip in their race bib to send a signal to the event’s tracking system. By tracking a runner, you will receive the following messages:
- 5 miles
Runners will also be able to check their race results on race day using the personalized QR Code on their bibs. A QR Code is a two-dimensional bar code that stores web addresses. The one on your bib will take you to your personal results site. Your results should be available 20-30 minutes after crossing the finish line.
