Eichrom - Rennes Urban Trail

GPS live tracking of Corporate Challenges: 6 teams tracked during the Rennes Urban Trail

The Rennes Urban Trail (Rennes, Britanny, France) took place this past weekend, under a beautiful sun. The event gathered more than 5,000 runners. Tech4Race was in the audience to support the Corporate Challenges equipped with the Tech4Race tracking solution.

The Rennes Urban Trail, a seCond edition full of surprises

On Sunday morning, April 22, 5,000 courageous people swapped their flip-flops for sneakers to run across the streets of Rennes. This 2nd edition of the Rennes Urban Trail was well named because the participants had to face some difficulties on the various courses proposed (7, 14 and 24km): steps to go down and to climb – including a 16 floors tower, obstacles or even sections with only cobblestones.

6 teams of the Corporate Challenge equipped with the Tech4Race GPS TRACKING SOLUTION

Since the beginning of the year, we offer companies participating in outdoor sporting events to equip their teams with our GPS tracking solution. Eichrom was the first tester during the 2017 marathon of Rennes. A successful experiment that led us to offer this service on different events.Eichrom renewed the experience this year on the Rennes Urban Trail and equipped 3 teams, plus 5 individual runners. Enensys Technologies also chose to follow its runners in real time and equipped 3 teams of runners.

GPS live tracking of a Corporate Challenge is a fun way to create a collective spirit and to gather colleagues around the values of effort, perseverance and sharing. Feeling followed and supported during the effort is comforting for the runner. Being able to find your teammates at the right time, at the right place during the race creates a collective energy.

Congratulations to all the runners. Happy to have met you on the side of the road!:)
