August 25, 2020
Real-Time Participant Engagement With Custom Audio Race Experience
August 25, 2020 – Moorestown, NJ – RunSignup announces RaceJoy’s dynamic audio race experience – now available real-time for virtual and on-site race events. With more than a million downloads, RaceJoy is the industry’s leading interactive race day mobile app offering live GPS participant tracking, spectator remote cheer sending, continual performance updates, and auto submission of results. RaceJoy’s audio race experience, referred to as Geo Cheers, empowers race organizers with tools to actively and remotely engage with participants as they complete either an on-site course or a race anywhere distance. RaceJoy now supports the ability for event organizers to add custom audio files at any time, increasing the flexibility to dynamically adjust files as needed. With RaceJoy, event organizers are able to offer participants those unique attributes that are at the very core of a race experience while supporting a socially safe framework.
“We are seeing a dramatic interest in RaceJoy’s ability for race organizers to help provide a safe and authentic race experience that actively engages with their participants. Think of RaceJoy as a way to virtually package up your race event and deliver to participants all over the country for them to take part in whenever and wherever they want. The Geo Cheer feature enables race organizers to engage real-time with their participants and add creativity and life to their event. This, along with all the other participant and spectator features in RaceJoy, gives races a way to still deliver a quality race experience in the midst of an environment filled with many unknowns,” said Bob Bickel, Founder and CEO of RunSignup and GiveSignup.
RaceJoy’s audio experience includes “Geo-based Cheers” and “Distanced-based Cheers” and can include supportive messages to participants, directional cues and communicating points of interests for on-site courses, and limited sponsor promotion. Event organizers have the option of creating custom audio recordings or using the existing tools available with RaceJoy. Audio files are loaded and scheduled to play automatically for participants based on either a location point on a defined course or a selected distance point for race anywhere events. Custom audio recordings can now be pre-loaded or added as the event is taking place.
Event organizers are able to further engage with participants real-time by sending custom text-to-speech audio messages to specific individual participants, a group of participants, or all participants from the convenience of their RaceJoy dashboard. In addition, organizers can take advantage of the communication news alert system to issue out important official news at any time.
RaceJoy is available exclusively through RaceJoy Certified Timers. Those events that use RunSignup as their primary registration provider are provided with discounted pricing. Event organizers can try a demonstration of RaceJoy by completing RunSignup’s RaceJoy Rocks 5K demo event.
