This year, friends and family will be able to track marathon, half-marathon and 5K runners as well as relay teams out on the course. This is a FREE service, courtesy of T-Mobile, the official wireless provider of Corrigan Sports and the Baltimore Running Festival.
Register online for the FREE Baltimore Running Festival runner tracking services powered by T-Mobile, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 9 am through Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7 am (EDT). Use this helpful information to track your favorite runners, and to reunite with loved ones at the T-Mobile Reunion Zone. The message will provide the runner’s time, pace and expected finish time.
You will be able to receive tracking messages on your mobile phone via text messaging, have an email sent to your inbox, or have posts placed on your facebook or twitter accounts.
Alerts are triggered when each runner’s individual timing chip crosses a timing mat that is part of the runner tracking system. By tracking a runner, you will receive the following messages:
- Full Marathon: 13.1, 18.9 mi, Finish
- Half-Marathon: 5.8, Finish
- Relay: Leg 1, Leg 2, Leg 3, Finish
