The highlight of joining our hybrid race is the “interactive dual map tracking” on the app. One map is the “event map” (the fixed course map of the event), and the other one is the “runners map” (the GPS-tracked course map of a remote runner). While a remote runner is running, both maps will display the runner’s live progress in the actual race (by simply switching between 2 buttons). Athletes and spectators see the race live on the athlete’s actual course and virtually on the event course at the same time. The “runners map” can be replayed and shared!
For example, Henrik, a remote runner, signed up for a 5k race taking place in Iceland. Henrik did the 5k run in Sweden, using the app on his phone. Once he completed his 5k, even if he ran longer, the app will stop and mark his finish time at the 5k point. His results will be instantly available together with all the other finishers (both remote and onsite runners) in the same race, based on his 5k time.
Hybrid Race participants will receive the same race pack as runners at the actual event including a race singlet, a drawstring bag, a finisher medal, and a finisher shirt (note: finisher shirts are only awarded to Marathon and Half Marathon runners).
