With Enabled Tracking's live tracking solution, participants can be tracked in real time. A small GPS tracker, no bigger than a box of matches, is carried by participants and their location is updated on a live map. Engage participants' friends and family, give participants post-race analysis, use as part of your safety and operations plan, and provide greater exposure for sponsors through the live tracking portal. It is almost a no-brainer for endurance events lasting more than 8 hours. Mention ARC to get 25% off your next tracking engagement.

Some of our members make maps.  Need a orienteering map or some customized map for your adventure race?  Contact one of these people.  Discounted rates for ARC members!
