In the last years the virtual events have become an important part of the world of races and events. This way the participant gets a chance to take part of a race independent of where he or she is. Our take on the virtual event feature is to make it as close to the real event as possible. The virtual event takes some of the key elements from a real event to keep the atmosphere. Enjoy the cheer of the crowds or take part of music with the audio experience feature while running on your own favourite course. Get instant feedback about progress and pace with the audio feedback and share your emotions after the finished race by taking a selfie and let others now about your achivement. A virtual event can be a replacement for a cancelled event or an extension to reach more participants.
Based on the progress on the map participants will hear pre-recorded audio content like music or information
A generic voice gives you feedback about progress, speed, estimated finish time, sponsor messages etc. It can be used as an alternatice to the audio experience or in combination
In addition to the event map participants can also see the actual position. It is possible to switch between event course position and actual position
Participants can take a selfie in app that uses a branded frame/canvas which organizers can design. It also includes a button to share directly on social media or save to camera roll
Get your individual route printed on a PDF certificate which can be downloaded via web or app. The GPS file of your route can also be uploaded to Strava etc.
Social media content is automatically fetched based on hashtags and published on results webpage and within the app. Mainly intended to use with Instagram and Twitter.
In the two Corona years, we were able to make great use of the mika:timing app for our virtual Generali Köln Marathon. The integrated GPS tracking allowed us to record the times of our participants anywhere in the world. Together with mika:timing we developed the new audio feedback feature, where the participant is informed about his individual split times via voice.
We place very high value on features with active involvement of the participants: selfie function with photo frame, social wall, social sharing function, finisher badge and certificates "Insta-ready". And the most important thing: By using the many different features, we created the real celebration atmosphere known beyond the city limits, the so-called "Kölle feeling"!
The special thing about the Midnight Run is the unique atmosphere and everything that happens along the course. The music, the choirs, the DJs, the party. With the mika:timing app and the feature audio experience, we were able to offer some of that atmosphere to the runners even though this year we couldn't run together. In addition, everyone were able to use the app's selfie feature and share their Midnight Run! Something that was very appreciated by the participants.
Top! The mika:timing event and tracking app met all expectations at the Vienna City Marathon 2021. Live results for fans, GPS tracking, event news but also features like social wall, audio experience and virtual race were well implemented. The launch of the app for us as organizers was very straightforward. We can only recommend the app.
The mika:timing tracking & event App gives athletes, viewers and organizers the best possible experience by offering unique features for your race.
