Tracking steps for the Westpac City-Bay Virtual Fun Run
We’ve partnered with Race Roster and the ASICS Runkeeper™ app to upload your race!
Please note: participants will not be able to submit their result until the 24 October 2020.
Below you’ll find detailed instructions and FAQs on how to track your participation using one of the following two ways:
OPTION 1: TRACK WITH THE RUNKEEPER APP
Step 1: Connect your registration
Once entered you will have received an email with a unique link to connect your registration to your app. We encourage you to download the app (click from mobile device) before your run/walk to test it out! Watch your email for your unique link.
If you have any trouble using the unique link in your email please go to https://raceroster.com/dashboard/participants and log- into Race Roster. On your event dashboard page you will see the button ' Connect to my app'. Follow the prompts and you are ready to participate.
Please make sure you open this link from your mobile phone.
OPTION 2: MANUALLY POST RESULTS
If you plan to record using another software or tracking device and need to post manually, simply head to the results page and “Submit Virtual Result”. You can simply log in, submit your final time as recorded on the results page and attach a photo or screenshot of your time. Photo verification is optional and not compulsory.
Your confirmation number and last name can be used to confirm your registration before submitting your results. This can be found with your email provided directly to you. Please check your promotional/ junk email. If you are still having trouble please email email@example.com
- Multiple event distances or participants under one Race Roster account
If you signed up for more than one distance within the same event, or signed up multiple individuals for the same event, please visit your Race Roster dashboard, select this event and then use the “Connect to App” button for each event distance or person. To send to a friend, copy and paste that connect to app button link and share it with them.
