With the AccuRun.com partnership, ChallengeRunner can now provide its member organizations the ability to run full featured, validated virtual races for their users. With a few easy steps, race organizers can create a virtual race of any length and invite participants to join. Once the race starts, participants use their Android or iPhone to automatically track distance, receive feedback and submit results.
The AccuRun platform has been fully integrated into ChallengeRunner and a user account is valid on both ChallengeRunner.com and AccuRun.com so there is no need for multiple accounts. While both admins and users can use ChallengeRunner.com or AccuRun.com to manage the race and see results, runners must use the free AccuRun app in order to capture validated race results. However, the race organizer may allow manual data entry from both the app or website if desired.
The invitation process for races is nearly identical to that of other challenges. The only difference is that the URL generated when inviting runners uses domain accurun.com instead of challengerunner.com. This difference allows the correct application to be opened when clicking the URL on an Android or iPhone device. Please see the following for more information on inviting participants.
