The trackers are designed to be easy to use, with preconfigured devices shipped to event organizers so that they can be handed out to runners at the start of the event.

Lead tracker Mark Harris of Enabled Tracking explained, “Over the past few years we have started to track more and more long distance relay races. Our trackers are the perfect baton for runners to hand off and for event directors to see exactly where participants are on the course. For the relay teams, it provides a great tool for them to see how to work out their team logistics of when and where runner swaps need to be made.”
