Adventurethon App creates a live tracker device out of your smart phone
Participants at the upcoming Coffs Harbour Adventurethon this October 10 and 11 will be part of a new revolution in Endurance Sports.
“The new Adventurethon App made by Cloud Three allows friends and family to track an athlete over the course making it easy to keep tabs on where they are. It also allows people from around the world to track certain athletes and follow the sport from afar “
Some interested parties in the upcoming Coffs harbour Adventurethon will be the top New Zealand Competitors who are expecting a number of visitors by Adventurethon competitors to the Coast to coast event in new Zealand 2016.last years Top Female Competitor Karren Masson who recently won free entry to the NZ race in Townsville will be one that the kiwis are watching ahead of her first C2C. The female field is stacked with a few top girls from the South east QLD and Northern NSW area which we will announce soon we know you will enjoy the competition.
Male competitors will be interesting to watch as Guy Andrews in some of the best form of his life at 44 yrs will have some stiff competition from Peak adventure athlete James Pretto and Western Australian Champion Kris Plain plus a swag of previous years competitors that have yet to announce their current form.
As well as allowing it tracking of well known athletes it is going to be great to track the first time competitors to be able to keep another set of eyes on competitors as well as allowing friends and family to be a part of the day and report their progress to their social media followers.
The team at Cloud Three who developed the app originally participated as a team in the 2014 Adventurethon events and straight after the Townsville event they went straight to the drawing board to work out how they could create an App to stay in touch with each other over the course. A few chats with the Event Director for ideas, plus countless hours of coding, building, and testing by Cloud Three and the first release of the Adventurethon App was born.
One of the best features of the app is that it turns a standard Apple or Android smartphone into GPS tracking beacon with an inbuilt emergency button so if anyone is in trouble on course the event Coordinators can be notified easily.
