The TrailMe app tracks you as you run, providing vital statistics and information including: exact location, speed, altitude, distance to finish, overall time, etc.
At the same time, family & friends can watch you live as you go!
How does it work?
The TRAILME app uses a series of trackers that have been placed along the entire course in advance. As you run, the trackers will connect to your mobile and track your speed, location and altitude in real time.
Friends and family can follow along as you run the course. To follow a runner live, follow these steps in the App: Live➔Course➔Map➔Ranking➔Runner #(turn On).
For the TRAILME app to work, you must download the app to your mobile device and keep Bluetooth and data turned ON as you run (3G/4G required). Internet is NOT required.
Feel free to use the low power mode on your device to conserve battery. Bear in mind, theTRAILME app uses very little power.

How to start the race (English)
As you run, you’ll be able to see all your performance stats including: speed, elevation, ETA to finish, distance run, etc
At the finish line, no need to do anything! Let us repeat... once you reach the finish line, you DO NOT need to do anything. The TRAILME app will automatically detect that you are at the finish and the tracking will end.
Note: We recommend to also record your run on Strava or a similar app in case any verification is needed.
Immediately, you should be able to see your total time and ranking on the TRAILME app. Go to Live➔Course➔Ranking.
