RaceJoy is created specifically for running, cycling and triathlon events with a focus on the participant and spectator experience. Features vary by event and include live phone tracking, progress alerts, results, race information, photos, Send-a-Cheer and much more!

There are two distinct experiences in RaceJoy:
-Featured Events
-Training Days

Featured Events (shown with the Event Logo):
These are events that have contracted with RaceJoy to provide a premium experience for participants and spectators. Features are free and provided by the event or sponsor(s).

Features included:
-Live GPS, phone tracking on the course map.
-Send-a-Cheer! (fun motivational audio clips).
-NearMe alerts (spectators and waiting relay teams get an alert when a participant is drawing near).
-MeetUp tool for seeing where you are in relation to a participant.
-Automatic Progress Postings to Twitter (with your approval, of course!).

The following features may be provided by the event:
-Scored Race Results within moments of crossing the finish line.
-Essential race information like schedules, FAQs, race news, and more.
-Your official race photos.
-Optional Tracking with Progress Alerts: Some events offer BIBTAG tracking in addition to PhoneTrak. For these events there is no need to carry your phone as this is based on the participant’s BIB/chip as they cross over timing points on the course.

Training Days
This area enables athletes to have their friends and family track their progress live on a map and send motivational cheers during long training runs or rides. All PhoneTrak features are available in Training Days, along with special motivational cheers to help you through those tough moments. Training Days is a free always available area for your long training days. Based on our privacy policy you must setup a special tracking ID (PIN) with profile name and provide that to friends and family tracking you on your Training Days.

Add a Race?
If you would like a race to offer the full featured experience with official race progress alerts and results, please let the race director know about RaceJoy.

Battery Usage
RaceJoy’s live phone tracking feature is ONLY activated during the hours of the event. When using Training Days, the athlete turns on/off tracking as needed. Use of this GPS technology running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. You may disable this under settings at anytime during the event to conserve battery life if needed.

Feedback and Support
We hope you enjoy using RaceJoy! Please share your experience in the App store to encourage others to try it out. If you have had any issues, or have feedback or ideas, please help us to improve the experience by contacting us at support@racejoy.com.

RaceJoy is created by a small family business and is dedicated to changing the race experience.

My fans loved it! Harder for me to use it on Apple Watch

Just ran my first 26.2, Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. Had just loaded the app on iPhone 7, which I carried in a waist mounted zippered pouch. Also had my Apple Watch series 2.

My perspective: once I pushed the “start race” button, I stowed my phone. Muted all the audible updates. Notifications of each mile status was impossible to read. A lot of data for the small watch display, I had my prescription sunglasses with no bi-focals and I was running so I couldn’t keep the watch still enough to read. It also did not do split times, just overall average pace, I think, because I couldn’t read the display. I did notice some cheers come thru also. Again, couldn’t read much more than who they were from. Not sure if they were generic or custom, because I don’t know how or if I can go back and read cheers. Happy at the end that it tracked my overall finish time. Overall, app was not difficult to figure out and very importantly, did not crash.

My fans’ perspective: they loved being able to see where I was, so they could get ahead to the next cheering location on the route. That made it worth loading a new app the day before a big run, and my first marathon!

Overall, I would recommend app as is for sending your live location to spectators. Work on the notifications display for watch. Since I didn’t use it as my in-run tool, I can’t speak to its features for pace tracking.

Loved the app

Downloaded the app yesterday to track my husband’s progress while he ran his first half marathon in Richmond. Overall the app was great! It gave me up to the min tracking and notified me every mile marker he passed. Only downside was I kept losing signal to my phone, which is strange being in an open park, on the river, in downtown Richmond. One min I’d have full LTE the next I’d be in SOS mode. Weird. Would still highly recommend cause I was still able to get into position to cheer him across the finish! Great day.

Could be better

Love the tracking, love that anyone can follow and send audible cheers throughout the run, however don’t love that the person has to have the app to be tracked. May as well just sign up for basic race texts or use find my friends and skip the app.
Not everyone carries their iPhone or has space for an additional app. I’m sure that if the app is sanctioned by the race, it can track the bib chip not the phone.
The worst thing about the app is that you actually have to physically hit start when you begin running. A previous relay I was on, we all didn’t realize this until it was too late, so the app was basically useless.
I don’t get why the gps that has to be constantly running, draining your battery, can’t just track your whereabouts on its own. In a world where we track our mileage on watches, and listen to music...do I really need ANOTHER thing to start when I begin my race??
No...better off using find my friends app or something you already have. The negatives outweigh the positives for me.
