HIRING A DEDICATED MINI GPS
We recommend dedicated mini GPS trackers as these have wider coverage and will enable you to keep a fully charged mobile with you at all times. The dedicated trackers are able to transmit your location on any and every available mobile network. They are matchbox sized and will arrive at your door a few days before the event so you can pack them up and take them with you. They have a single power button to switch on and off. They cost £15 to hire, plus £3.95 for Signed For delivery.
There is a limited stock of trackers, and they are hired on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that “Collection at event” is not available for City to Summit, so please choose a delivery option. Orders will need to be placed soon so the tracker can be delivered to you before the event. Hire the tracker here.
USING YOUR PHONE AS A TRACKER
Alternatively you can install the RaceDrone mobile phone app. The app is a one-off cost of £2 (Android) £3 (Apple). The app can be used at a future event of any kind. The cost to be tracked on an individual event is just £5. When you sign up for tracking to the event you will be shown a weblink so you can check the network coverage maps from EE/O2/Three/Vodaphone. If there is no coverage, or poor coverage, then hire a dedicated tracker instead because the RaceDrone App relies on your phone having a data signal to work. We completed The Wall Ultra with 22% battery remaining after 16+ hours of running.
Please note that RaceDrone is operated by an external provider and is listed here as an addition to the Rat Race The Wall event. All enquires should be directed to RaceDrone here.
