Does anyone know if there is a system in place so that spectators and friends at home can receive runners progress by text or email?
Only other option is via Facebook
It will also go live from Saturday and you can track up to 10 runners.
Good luck on Sunday runners x
Anybody actually tried to use the facebook thing today (Saturday)? My wife is trying to input my number and others as she has to take our son to rugby championships and can't be there to support.
She can't get the facebook thing up on her 3G iPhone coz the page goes blank, and she can't input numbers as the 'page couldn't be displayed'. Has it crashed or is she doing something wrong - it is a possibility !
I keep getting *sorry runner data not available til 25 April* when I try via the link I was sent when I did the text thing.
Let me know if it goes live [it said 24 hours before, so it's coming up to 5 hours later thana they said]
Hope I don't forget to try again later!
anyone using an iPhone will find that the adidas application does NOT work - it requires Adobe Flash, which is not licensed to Apple.
would have been nice for Adidas to make that a bit clearer...
is the Adidas 'wap' link (that you get if you text to 83040 - might work better for iPhones / small mobiles....
It gave me the right runner through the Facebook app but I'll be trying it on my phone later.
Although, if '... will automatically update the runner’s position as they progress around the course at every 5km stage.' means that it'll tell me where he is in kilometres, that's not going to mean much to me.
