RACESAFE will provide the CUCB and its medical team with its robust, user-friendly mobile interface that offers instant GPS based communication, situational awareness, reporting and documentation of medical incidents during events.

“We are always looking for ways to streamline our critical operations and RACESAFE has proven its ability to address that need for event medical at races all across the USA,” said Phil Stewart, Race Director . “We want to ensure the highest standard of care for our participants and RACESAFE’s platform will help us achieve that.”

In addition to its powerful event day applications, RACESAFE helps events and their medical partners recruit and organize the event’s medical team and provides detailed post event analytics to help prevent future bad outcomes. It also offers event participants a secure HIPAA compliant portal to share their personal medical information for a more comprehensive response to an event medical emergency. New to the platform in 2023 is the Reference Feature, providing medical team users real-time and instant access to critical emergency protocol documents including cardiac care procedures and other key documents.

Developed in 2012 by Dr. Anthony Luke, Director of the UCSF Human Performance Center, RACESAFE has been used by over 300 events around the world, including the San Francisco Marathon, the Flying Pig Marathon (Cincinnati), Twin Cities Marathon, Detroit Marathon, and many others. In addition to Cherry Blossom and the aforementioned events, 2023 will be a big year with RACESAFE being used by the Boston Marathon, the Special Olympic World Games in Berlin, Germany, and a number of other major endurance events in the US and Europe, to be announced shortly.

“We developed RACESAFE to address a critical need: how to simplify event medical operations for all constituents in the event ecosystem” said Dr. Luke. “From instant information, to staff recruiting, to race day participants, RACESAFE seamlessly connects this most important component of an event. We are excited to see so many events acknowledge the need for the RACESAFE platform.”
