The Australian Running Festival in your pocket!
The Official 2019 Canberra Times Australian Running Festival app, powered by Tata Consultancy Services, is available to download on iPhone and Android. Coming soon.
Runners, spectators and fans around Australia can access Race Day information, find and track participants during the race, locate points of interest on the course including distance markers, drink stations and more, as well as keep up with split times, leader board positions and results throughout the weekend.
Whether you’re a first-time spectator or a marathon veteran, you’ll get everything you need for the best possible experience on Race Day!
Key features in 2019 for runners and spectators:
Dedicated runner page
Within the tracking section you'll have access to a dashboard of live tracking stats and cheer cards for each runner.
Track your favourite runners across the course
Whether they are your friends, family, elite runners or our Griffins participating in the 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra Marathon, you'll be able to cheer them on via our live tracking page on Race Day. You can search by surname or Bib Number and follow your runner(s) as they make their way around the course (updates will appear as they cross the timing points, which are at 5km intervals). The page will also show an estimate of the runner's location based on pace.
Locate the best spot to watch your runner
On the course our Spectator Guide can help you plan your race-day itinerary. Choose up to three spots on the course from our recommended viewing locations, and your guide will provide your runner’s estimated times of arrival, along with walking directions between locations.
