As we get closer to race day we know that some (many? most?) of you will start sweating the details. In an effort to keep your stress levels as low as possible, we’re posting answers to some of our most frequently asked questions here through the end of the week. Of course, if you have a burning question, post it as a comment here on the blog. We’ll get right back to you!
What was that you said about live results and runner tracking?
As announced here, we’re thrilled to provide real-time (unofficial) results and runner tracking on race day. To track your favorite runner, bookmark this link*; come race day, you can enter a bib number or last name and see live results of when that person crossed the timing mats at miles 10, 13.1, 20 and the finish line. If you are tracking a relay team, you must kow the team’s BIB NUMBER to use runner tracking.
Don’t have a smart phone? You can track your runner using one of several monitors located under the FairPoint Results tents in Waterfront Park. Please have your runner’s bib number with you to expedite look-up.
IMPORTANT NOTE: note: on-course runner tracking is only available for full Marathoners and 2-person relay teams. Data for 3-5 person relay teams is only available after the last leg runner crosses the finish line.
*Note: the link is NOT live yet; but it will be race morning at 8am!
What is the difference between unofficial and official results?
