LIVE TRACKING/SPOT DEVICE DISCLAIMER: We do not guarantee live tracking or that it will work correctly. SPOT device tracking is not always accurate and occasionally devices do not work properly. Sometimes people are marked as DNF (Did Not Finish) or Finished that are still on course. Please note that we are tracking runners through radio communications first, live map second. Live map is for your enjoyment and for a backup or in the case that we need to locate a runner.
Disclaimer about live tracking & SPOT rentals/tracking: We do not guarantee that SPOT trackers will work properly or that the map will work properly. About 5% of trackers have an issue during the 4+ days that the event is live. Public use of the map is for the public’s enjoyment and is not guaranteed to work nor is its accuracy guaranteed at any time. The race organization uses the map for the safety of the runners and reserves the right to make the map private at any time during the event. Although rare, occasionally participants can be marked as having finished or DNF (did not finish) when they are in fact still on the course. The race organization is tracking all runners both through the map and also through radio communication in and out of all aid stations, so the map is a back up to the radio runner tracking and a way for the race to locate runners in the case of emergency or other need. We ask that you stay calm if you feel there is a problem and contact us. Often SPOT trackers can seem like they are ‘off course’ when in fact they are on course, at an aid station (sleeping), sleeping on trail or the tracker may just be bouncing off canyons/ mountains. We have designated employees whose job it is to monitor this map and report to us if anyone appears to be lost or off course. You cannot tell by just looking at where the tracker is if someone is off course due to the occasional inaccuracy of the devices. We can tell though by accessing their actual waypoints, so please remember that we are working on this at all times day and night. If you do have concerns you may email Kristal@destinationtrailrun.com and Racedirector@destinationtrailrun.com
