- How many times has it happened that your child or partner went running and they were not home on time? They might have decided to run further or train longer, but you wouldn’t know about it.
- How often do you as runner run into a situation where you need someone’s help? Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that with the press of a button you can summons someone to come and help you; and they don’t even have to search for you.
- Do your athletes follow the route you have set out for them to run in a practice session? You, as the coach, can follow them on your mobile phone while they train or participate in a race without tagging along behind them and still attend to your other athletes.
- Do you feel left in the dark when your loved ones participate in a race, and you can’t follow their progress? Imagine being able to track them while they participate, all this from the comfort of your own home or along the route. Imagine sharing in the excitement of knowing exactly how far they are from the finish line especially in a marathon or ultra marathon such as the Comrades. Trail Running is not always accessible to the public; you can follow them stride-by-stride and even in the dark!
