viRACE for organizers

viRACE is an app that allows runners to take part in a running competition in real time without having to be physically present. Live updates on the intermediate results from you and your marked favorites are delivered directly to your ears via headphones. There is also the possibility to schedule track specific announcements. Timekeeping, registration and tracking is handled directly via the app.
