Runners – there are three ways for your friends and family to keep track of your position on the course.
Fan Alert lets anyone register to receive e-mails tracking their favorite runner (or runners). This service is available now.
Athlete Alert lets you, the runner, put in multiple loved ones’ email addresses so they can receive updates as you pass the various splits along the course. This service is available now.
Athlete Tracker let’s anyone track your progress in their web browser. To access this service, just have them go to www.ingnycmarathon.org on race day.
Splits for all services will be reported at every 5K mark along the course as well as at the start, half-marathon mark (13.1 miles/21.1K), miles 16 through 26, and the finish. These services are free and are a great way for people to keep track of your pace and location.
