How it works:

Send Alerts to Your Phone

To track an entrant, just text: 

CCI BIB#

to 72147

where BIB# is the entrants bib number

 

 

1. Share the link below with your friends and family so they can sign up to receive up to 10 text (Smartphones only) and/or email messages on your progress during the race. As you cross each timing mat on the race course, a message is sent to those tracking you (timing mats will be located at 10K, 10 miles, 13.1 miles, 20 miles, and the finish). Sign up to track a runner (or try http://live.xacte.com/templates/www.illinoismarathon.com/results.html#track)

2. Enter the first and last name of the runner you want to track during the race. (note: Race entrant data is uploaded once a week to Xact. If your runner doesn’t show up in the search, check back in a few days. It may mean he/she just registered in the last week and the data hasn’t been uploaded yet).

3. Select how you would like to receive your updates (by clicking the icon on the screen) and then follow the prompts to enter your cell number and/or email address.

4. After completing the process, here is what the email confirmation that you will receive from Xact Event Alerts will say: This email has been signed up to receive alerts on race day during marathon.You will be tracking==========================Joe Runner==========================Traking Proudly Provided by AMTRAK

5. Here is what the text message confirmation you will receive will say:

“Xact Alerts: Raceday msgs of realtime tracking of Joe Runner. Reply HELP for help. STOP to cancel. Msg/Data Rates May apply: marathon. Traking Provided by Amtrak.”
