RACE EXPLORER, it’s our exciting new Race Results service for race directors, race timers and event companies.
It’s a tailored service, transforming race results from traditional (and slightly boring) static lists into dynamic dashboards where the race community can interact with simulated competitors.
The video below demonstrates RACE EXPLORER’s major features and there’s a website dedicated entirely to the service at https://raceexplorer.com
This project has been in development for almost 2 years and we’ve been trialling it with a variety of events across different countries. A key feature is that it supports almost any type of timed event, with our demonstration events covering running, cycling, swimming and even triathlons.
Fundamentally we wanted to develop a service that is compatible with a variety of race timing systems, accounting for differences in timing formats, category allocations and event types. We can now customise RACE EXPLORER for almost any type of results output, and importantly, have a demonstration of the final product ready prior to the event.
Another focus of the service is to remove overheads from Race Directors, who through our experience in also being on race event committees, are already very busy people! Thus, race directors need only provide a sample of their race timing results prior to the event. We then design the race analytics interface, which includes event logos and can be extended to include event images and colours to match the branding of the event.
While RACE EXPLORER provides sophistication with its interactive race map and analytics, the focus is on FUN! Competitor’s engage with the timed race results and can visualise who finished around them. They can compare across categories and genders to build a greater understanding of the race distributions.
We’ve found it also leads to an increase in social media activity post event.
