Saturday, October 7 at noon, 48 duos crossed the start line of the first edition of the Swim&Run of Crozon (France), organized by ”les nageuses et nageurs de la Presqu’île de Crozon”. Each duo was equipped with a Tech4Race GPS tracker. A first for us on this type of discipline!
The teams were able to pick up their tracker (1 per team) during the distribution of the bibs on the morning of the event. Some runners have worn it on the wrist, arm, ankle or in a pocket of their suit.
The course was composed of 4 swimming sections (5 900m) and 4 running sections (11km), along the Finistère coast (west coast of France). The departure was given in open sea, from boats, under a radiant sun! The finish line was on the port of Morgat. Congratulations to the participants, all finishers!
We were exceptionally present the day before the event to make a reconnaissance of the course and install some antennas to have an optimal coverage. Result: on earth, no problem, the tracking worked well. At sea, we confirm: the tracker is waterproof, not a drop of water in the cases. We still have to improve the quality of the signal when the tracker is immersed.
Congratulations to all the organizing team and a special thanks to Robison Azzis for his enthusiasm as an early adopter of the Tech4Race solution.
