Live tracking

Last year we introduced live tracking, which was a great success. It was amazing to be able to follow the runners day in and day out, and several of the participants mentioned having encountered cheering spectators along the race. This simply wouldn’t happen without the tracking, and of course we’re bringing the trackers back again this year.

As long as the gods of technology are on our side, you’ll be able to follow the runners live (the positions are updated every five minutes) on the addresses below. The first is a big version for computers, the second works better on phones and tablets. Please bookmark them and send them to all your friends!
