There is a fast growing global community interested in the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon series - not only friends, family, supporters and former competitors, but also a fanbase of people inspired by the dream of one day competing. To keep up with the demands of this expanding community, we are constantly developing our media capabilities.
The RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon staff use a combination of satellite and mobile communications to distribute content from the races to our website and to broadcasters around the world. During each stage of the race we post hourly updates to the website about race leaders and individual competitors. We also post daily video highlights captured of staff, volunteers and competitors. Social media sites updated include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
At least 150 photographs are uploaded daily from the race capturing the locations, highlights and spirit of the event. Daily videos are uploaded as well. We also distribute daily features about competitors and the locations as well as stage updates on the race website. Overall positions and timings are logged on the website as soon as possible after the last competitor crosses the finish line of each stage.
