CheerOn

Overview

Cheer On is a mobile-app for location tracking that helps marathon runners and their biggest fans stay connected on race day.
The app tracks the runner’s location and sends it to his or her spectators in real-time, offering intelligent predictions for when and where they should go to cheer them on.
So instead of watching diligently for their favorite runner, spectators can enjoy the race day experience.
