As we begin a new year, the events landscape is a dramatically different place compared to twelve months ago. While there is hope for the longer term with the start of a vaccination campaign it is clear that 'business as usual' won't be happening for a while yet. While some actual events will manage to take place, the virtual world is here to stay. But even that has changed dramatically in recent months.
Where virtual events were seen as a bit of a stop-gap to keep people motivated, they are now turning into so much more. Results Base has been fine tuning its services and our latest option allows organisers to set out physical routes which can be timed using our QRTag service. These can run for a day, a week, a month, (or any time period you want!) and allow participants to self-time with their mobile. It's all done in real-time so you get a constantly updated leaderboard and there's even the option to get turn-by-turn route guidance making this ideal for longer events like ultras and sportives.
There's also been a massive increase in people tackling challenge events that add up your times and distances over a period to take on anything from our SixPack marathons to the Pennine Way or Lakeland100 or even the LOROS Run The World. From taking the entries to delivering the virtual bib numbers and custom medals, the Results Base team are here to turn your idea, however crazy, into a reality.
