Following a bit of Twitter discussion, if you’re planning on using a smartphone (or dedicated GPS) and tracking your races at WPGC2013, if you share the tracks with us after the event in either TCX, GPX, FIT or KML formats we can aggregate them into a fully animated playback.

Some options :

Protect your phone with an Aquapac or small drybag…

Or via a search results here

Dedicated GPS

e.g. Garmin eTrex
– most dedicated GPS units allow download of tracks in GPX, TCX or KML format.

Android

Google My Tracks
GPX Logger
Turbo GPS 2

iPhone

GPX Master
Trails

…plus a ton of others…

So, set your app recording before the start and share your tracks via [email protected] (we’ll do any cleaning up of the data files for you). In example below the Nut Rock start is the diagonal red line, the speed and tracks shown for three crews…
