The Murray Bank Murray Half Marathon is changing the race experience for the upcoming eighth annual event, on Saturday, April 14th. For the first time ever, the race will offer the RaceJoy experience to all half marathon and two-person relay participants, at no cost. 

RaceJoy takes advantage of runners carrying their phone with them along the course, by providing real-time interactive experiences for participants, spectators, and race operations. It is a mobile app specifically designed for running, cycling and triathlon events across the United States.

The app offers a flexible platform that does not require any extra equipment or integration with technology. Athletes can simply download the app, do necessary sign-up and carry their phone with them during the race.

Race fans can follow their runner throughout the course via live GPS, as well as send audio cheers for the runner to listen to along the course. Runners will receive progress updates at every mile that include pace and estimated finish time. Options allow for automatic social media sharing, as well.
