National 'Come and try' the Adventurethon App TRACKER long weekend!
National Come and try the Adventurethon App long weekend!
October 3rd to 5th long weekend
Be part of a new revolution in Endurance Sports. This October 3rd 4th and 5th long weekend experience the excitement of the Adventurethon App from wherever you are in the country and get your family and friends to live track you on whatever Training run, ride, paddle or race you are a part of over that weekend.
All around Australia people will be tracking their friends – or dot watching…
At some point many of us have been caught up in DOT WATCHING – the watching of athletes competing in races where you might not usually see any action due to the length and terrain being not easily accessible for spectators.
No more wondering where your friend is along the course and thinking ‘they should be in by now’. Now you can keep tabs on them the whole way.
Benefits – exciting to watch and see where they are at,
- less stress/worry about where competitor is
- more interactive
- More interesting watching the top competitors battle it out across a race course or training run
“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 “
Normally only exclusively available to Adventurethon athletes over an Adventurethon race weekend however the National Come and try the Adventurethon App day! Is perfect for all endurance athletes around the country to turn their phones into live tracking beacons for the weekend.
The Come and try the App day leads in perfectly to the Adventurethon Coffs Harbour the Following weekend October 10th and 11th where Pro athletes and age group athletes will be live tracking their way across the brutal and stunning course.
Phone run time is approx 3.5 – 5.5 hours depending on battery life of the phone (it can also be boosted further by ensuring some of the other apps you run are shut down during tracking mode)
It is recommended that water based athletes who wish to track live, use a water proof case able to be fully submerged such as the overboard range of cases.
The team at Cloud Three who developed the app originally participated as a team in Adventurethon events and straight after their event they went straight to the drawing board to work out how they could create an App to track 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.
