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

There are three distinct experiences in RaceJoy:
-Featured Events
-PhoneTrak 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. Most features are free and provided by the event or sponsor(s).

Features vary by race and may include:
-Tracking with Progress Alerts: 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.
-Scored Race Results within moments of crossing the finish line.
-Automatic Progress Postings to Facebook and Twitter (with your approval, of course!).
-Essential race information like schedules, FAQs, race news, BIB numbers, and more.
-Your official race photos and RunPix information.
-Optional Upgrade to PhoneTrak for live phone tracking and Send-a-Cheer!

PhoneTrak Events (shown with the RaceJoy Logo):
These are events that are added based upon users’ requests and offer a streamlined experience of RaceJoy, including:
-Live GPS, phone tracking on the course map.
-Send-a-Cheer! (fun motivational audio clips).
-Proximity 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.

The race participants must carry their phone during the race to experience these features. There is a $0.99 charge for both the participant and spectator to use these features. Note: RaceJoy may not be officially affiliated with these events.

Training Days
This new feature 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 available for $2.99 per month and only the tracked athlete is required to make the purchase. There is no charge for the spectator.

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. If you would like to use the phone tracking for an upcoming race, send us your request at

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.

Loved this app!!!!


This was seriously such an amazing app!!! I ran my first half marathon today, and no one in my family was able to make it to the race, but with the app, they got to cheer me on anyway! And most of them made me laugh out loud! Other runners were looking at me like I was crazy. I loved the mile updates, too. They kept me on track and motivated. It turned what could have been a long hard race into something that I was able to have fun with and enjoy. Thanks RaceJoy!

Grand lake marathon, Review


This is my first use of RaceJoy app, it only reported my position on the course one time to my wife and reported my Finish to her about an hour after race was finished, I believe we had it all set right but not for sure.. also normally my phone uses about 25% of my battery during a two hour run, during this event it used 85% battery, I believe if I had of run the full marathon instead of the half it would not have lasted to the end of the race... not sure I will use again but I believe in second chances...

Great app!


Thought this app was great. I especially loved the mile updates and predicted finish time based on pace. Helped me kick it into high gear and beat the predicted finish time in the last two miles. My family cheered me on from home and their cheers were a great inspiration to keep going. The only downfall was that during the race I kept getting notices saying I wasn’t being tracked (but was), and not all the cheers came through audio (but I could see them in the app).
