Virtual races - step-by-step


Step #1
Create an account and log in

Download the app from App Store or Google Play.

Create an account by logging in through Facebook, Apple or Google - or add your email address.

If you decide to use the email address you will get to chose a password when clicking "Continue with email".

If you chose any of the other options your account will get your email through the service of choice.

When logged in, you will be directed to the start page of the app.

  1. FAQ & support
  2. Search
  3. To the start page
  4. To the race view
  5. Profile / Settings



Step #2

On the race page inside the app, you will see the following bar:

JOIN RACE

You will be asked to submit one or more of the following:

  • START NUMBER
  • RACE CODE

Add the information needed and click SAVE to proceed.

The race code is a "password" that the organizer will provide for you.
If you have not received a race code yet - please contact the organizer for more information.




Step #3
Race and phone settings

Before the race we recommend that you go through the available settings - both for the race itself and on your device. Some phone brands might require more attention to the settings - as a Huawei owner it is extra important that you will have a look at our article about these settings.

Good to know!
If you prefer to leave your device at home, it is possible to manually add a result after the race - as long as the organizer approves.
Information about managing your result

Before you start the race, please make sure the your device has the correct settings.

When you are ready to go, you will reach the race view though RACE at the bottom of the start page or by clicking TO START on the race page.

  1. Double check the race settings
  2. Wait for a good GPS signal - all four stacks should be filled and turn green

    If you have the correct settings you will be able to lock/turn off the screen of your device before outting it away

Good luck!
