Athlinks Premium Race Day is a set of features provided through the Athlinks App for a per-athlete fee. If you are using ChronoTrack Live registration for your event, these features are completely free! If you are not using CT Live Registration, the fee is $0.80 per registered athlete.
The features included with Athlinks Premium Race Day are:
Predictive Pace Map Tracking
This feature uses the physical timing equipment at your event to generate a predicted location for each athlete on a map of your course(s). The more timing locations that are used, the more accurate predictions will be. Any user with the Athlinks App can track their friends and family - even if they don't have an Athlinks account.
"Featured" Status for Your Event Within Athlinks
When you opt into Athlinks Premium Race Day, your event will be placed in the "Featured" section of the Athlinks App, granting your race a greatly heightened level of exposure to 1 million+ Athlinks members. Coupled with Athlinks Event Landing Pages, this provides a broad avenue toward extra event revenue.
Event Feed with Rich Media Posts and Push Notifications
The Event Feed allows you to send out media-rich messages, advertisements, and updates to your participants and people spectating the event through the App. These Feed items will appear within the app and as push notifications for spectators and race participants.
