Runner tracking

Runners near the finish line.

Real-Time Remote Racing™


Our past participants will remember the runner tracking app from previous races. This year, it's getting a pandemic-proof upgrade, allowing us to run together on race day, Sat., Dec. 5 at 7 a.m. CST, from wherever you happen to be! It's not just a virtual run, it's a remote race.


Participant instructions


  1. Connect and claim your profile. Emails with instructions will be sent out weekly for new registrants, or download the app now.
  2. Update your profile by adding a photo, reviewing location settings and more.
  3. Connect your Strava account to RTRT. The app uses GPS tracking from your phone or through your Strava-connected device to track your distance, pace and time automatically.
  4. Complete a practice run of any distance. This helps prepare you for race day and is required for each distance before your tracking begins.
  5. Run your race and track your finish time. On race day, Sat., Dec. 5, you'll see a countdown in the app. The race will start promptly at 7 a.m. CST. While your race can be completed anytime between Sept. 21 - Dec. 5, we encourage all participants to join us on race day.

Please note: The app is the only option to submit your race time.
