* Follow the 2016 T100 & T184 race here (from Friday 26th August 2016, 10.30am) *
T-Series have partnered with GoTek who will provide competitors with an individual GPS device to be carried for the duration of the race.
This device enables all web enabled devices (including Apple and android devices) to track competitors progress in real time.
This will enable family and friends to track an individual competitor during the event and supporters can watch a virtual race unfold from the comfort of their own home. Competitors now have an added pressure knowing the world is watching their performance!
A weblink will be posted in the week before the date of the race where supporters can view competitors GPS devices.
In addition, progress can be tracked via a Android or Apple phone by downloading the GoTek 7 application from the relevant app store. The logon details will be communicated in the week before the race.
Use of the GoTek GPS devices was a hugely successful innovation in the T-Series races. After a period of testing in 2013, the devices were first used in the 2014 T60 Challenge and enabled a web audience to view an amazingly close finish between our first two competitors.
The T184 Challenge has seen a huge amount of interest generated due to the use of the trackers which proved to be compulsive and addictive viewing for the audience at home who have been able to share the runners journey ‘virtually’ from the comfort of their own home.
