Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon (SCHKM) has been held annually since 1997, which each year attracted more than 70,000 local and international runners to participate in. However, in view of the current epidemic situation, SCHKM has to limit the number of participants. In order to allow more runners to engage in these events, Hong Kong Association of Athletics Affiliates collaborated with DigiSalad to launch the virtual run app.
Location Tracking Function
Once the registered runner enters the authentication code, the whole process of the run, including the running distances, speeds and routes of the runners can be recorded through the location tracking function.
Run Anytime, Anywhere
Both international and local runners are able to register and participate in the virtual run. Runners can choose their own path to satisfy the required distance. Each runner can take on a maximum of five attempts, each of them can be finished within 24 hours. More importantly, users may pause the run to take a break any time after the start time. They can also capture all the special moments in the run on the mobile phone camera and share them on social media.
After the completion, the runners can submit their best record to the system and or it will select the best record from the valid attempts and issue an e-certificate to the runners. They can view their e-certificate in the mobile app and receive it from email attachment.
In the year of 2022, we will launch more advanced functionalities on the virtual run mobile app to enhance the user engagement and app performance. Please stay tuned to our updates!
