RaceJoy is created specifically for running, cycling and triathlon events with a focus on the participant and spectator experience. Features vary by event and include live phone tracking, progress alerts, results, race information, photos, Send-a-Cheer and much more!

There are two distinct experiences in RaceJoy:
-Featured Events
-Training Days

Featured Events (shown with the Event Logo):
These are events that have contracted with RaceJoy to provide a premium experience for participants and spectators. Features are free and provided by the event or sponsor(s).

Features included:
-Live GPS, phone tracking on the course map.
-Send-a-Cheer! (fun motivational audio clips).
-NearMe alerts (spectators and waiting relay teams get an alert when a participant is drawing near).
-MeetUp tool for seeing where you are in relation to a participant.
-Automatic Progress Postings to Twitter (with your approval, of course!).

The following features may be provided by the event:
-Scored Race Results within moments of crossing the finish line.
-Essential race information like schedules, FAQs, race news, and more.
-Your official race photos.
-Optional Tracking with Progress Alerts: Some events offer BIBTAG tracking in addition to PhoneTrak. For these events there is no need to carry your phone as this is based on the participant’s BIB/chip as they cross over timing points on the course.

Training Days
This area enables athletes to have their friends and family track their progress live on a map and send motivational cheers during long training runs or rides. All PhoneTrak features are available in Training Days, along with special motivational cheers to help you through those tough moments. Training Days is a free always available area for your long training days. Based on our privacy policy you must setup a special tracking ID (PIN) with profile name and provide that to friends and family tracking you on your Training Days.

Add a Race?
If you would like a race to offer the full featured experience with official race progress alerts and results, please let the race director know about RaceJoy.

Battery Usage
RaceJoy’s live phone tracking feature is ONLY activated during the hours of the event. When using Training Days, the athlete turns on/off tracking as needed. Use of this GPS technology running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. You may disable this under settings at anytime during the event to conserve battery life if needed.

RaceJoy is great!

I used RaceJoy for the first time last Sunday at the Catholic Health Services Suffolk County Marathon and it was great! It notified me and my followers at every mile marker and gave average pace and estimated completion time. The best thing is the cheers feature. I was able to receive encouraging and funny messages from my followers during the race. They really cheered me up during the tough parts of the race! I recommend the use of RaceJoy at all distance races.

Works great!!

Just ran my first marathon and it was great for my family to see where I was on the course. I like the cheers, but loved that they were waiting for me at the finish line!!

I just ran my first 15k last weekend. I liked how it did keep up the distance and all. It was pretty close. The only problem I noticed with notifications is that there was a delay. I had my phone in my zipper belt and had Bluetooth ear buds and it would show up on my Apple Watch. But the cheer didn’t come through earbuds right away. So I had to pull phone out and look for the cheers. I had Lot more cheers then I actually heard through sound Of that can be fixed I would love to use it again with my Route66 marathon coming up Nov 18th.
