FIND YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES
Search for your ‘favourite’ runners (friends, family, celebrities and the elites).
This feature allows you to search for your favorite runner and follow them as they complete the race. You can see their progress at every 5K split and track their pace. The app will also predict what time your runner will reach the next 5K checkpoint based on their current pace.
View your favourite runners on the interactive course map as they make their way around the course, to ensure you get to the best viewing points in time to support them.
App users tracking their favorite runners will receive a notification after the runner crosses the Finish Line.
