Runner Tracking Presented By Verizon Wireless
If you’re looking to keep track of your favorite runners during Grandma’s Marathon or the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, the Runner Tracking Service is a great solution.
Visit http://grandmasmarathon.com/site/index.php?page=runner-tracking, and simply enter the name(s) of the runner(s) you want to track. Then select whether you want the information delivered by text message or email by entering a valid wireless phone number or email address.
The tracking system, made possible through the support of Verizon Wireless, Mtec Results and MarathonGuide.com, enables the progress of Grandma’s Marathon and Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon participants to be tracked at numerous checkpoints along the racecourse, including the finish line.
The signup period runs until 8 p.m. Friday, June 20 through the Grandma's Marathon Web site or by stopping by the Verizon Wireless exhibit outside of the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC).
This marks the seventh year that Verizon Wireless is sponsoring runner tracking via text messaging and email. The company has been a major sponsor of Grandma’s Marathon since 1992.
