Race & Event Live GPS Tracker
After tracking many individual challenges and Guinness World Record attempts we now offer a brand new tracking map.
A live GPS tracking map, dedicated for races and events, allowing to track multiple assets at the same time.
How does it work?
Every participant takes along one of our GPS tracking devices. This tracker transmits location data at a set interval over GPRS. The GPS tracking interval could be set to every few seconds/minutes up to hours. The GPS tracking device stores all data in case of no GPRS signal to ensure no data gets lost. Our dedicated web server then receives and stores the data. The live race & event map feeds itself every x minutes with the event specific data to ensure best performance. In case you have your own hardware: we are capable of connecting to any kind of GPS transmitter!
The map is designed to present a clear event overview while still containing lot of details.
Tab 1, the main tab, contains the map with all riders/markers/checkpoints displayed. To make most use of the space it has a folding menu on the right side. The menu displays the race clock, filter options and the participants overview sorted on current position. Clicking on a participant activates the poly line and expands the sub menu exposing details participant data like current position, estimated elapsed distance, distance to finish (DTF), current speed and the checkpoints. Other features are 'show top 5' and 'show top 10'.
Tab 2, the leaderboard tab, contains a grid displaying all participants and corresponding checkpoint data. The grid allows you to filter on participants and sort columns by clicking on the headers. Detail: the first participant to check a checkpoint (automated) is highlighted in green!
Control panel: you, as organizer, are in full charge of the participants. Add/change/modify participant data like name, start number, country or mark a participant as scratched. Monitor every device in real-time. Our 'health' page display all details per device with critical data highlighted.
It's no longer the question whether someone ran out of battery or has bad reception; you know it all.
Software & Hardware
We offer software, hardware and all-in-one packages.
We deliver our GPS tracking devices packed in waterproof flight cases. All devices are charged and incl. data plans.
Every case comes with spare GPS tracking devices, USB-Cables, 10-port USB chargers and waterproof bags on request.
Is the tracker suitable for my event?
If your event involves moving participants and/or objects: yes!
Every event is unique. We would love to adjust the software to fit your needs.
Our Race & Event live GPS Tracker would be perfect to track, for example, classic car rally events, long distance/trail/ultra/cross country running, cycling, sailing, hiking, skiing, Escape and Evade events and more.

Why Follow My Challenge?
Like our tracker software we are flexible! We love to customise the tracker to suit your challenge.
- Optimised for best viewing experience on all devices (from smartphone and tablet to Full HD screens).
- We only use the best 'made-in the EU' hardware that we have tested extensive.
- We offer all-in-one solutions to make it as easy as possible.
- Our software runs on dedicated web servers, in a modern datacentre, with the capability of upscaling. In case of high loads we are able to upscale the hardware to suit the demands. We monitor our servers real-time.
- We test, test and test even more. We challenge our soft- and hardware. We know how our soft- and hardware behaves when it needs to handle hunderds of visitors per minute. We have benchmarked it many times to ensure that our software outscores the competition.
