Ironman 70.3 Budapest is part of The Word Triathlon Corporation, that organizes, promotes, and licenses the Ironman Triathlon, Ironman 70.3, and several other globally recognized sporting events.
This year’s Ironman Budapest Triathlon was complimented by a companion mobile application that was downloadable to participants and spectators smartphones. Using GPS, iBeacon, and various other technologies it enabled spectators to view the progress of the participants live in real time.
Participants also had the benefit of reviewing helping information, charts, and maps pertinent to the race. They also received push notifications, letting them know that their race was starting soon and to report to the starting line. Participants were able to register to gain access to the app directly by entering their pre-authorized email address into the application, then receiving a confirmation link at the registered email address to activate.
