Build your virtual race platform
We care about our industry and your business. We thought of a way to help you reach out to your events with a temporary initiative to virtually engage their audience during these difficult times.
As we notice through news media and social channels everywhere around the world people are still able to exercise within their own possibilities. Other than working towards an event they are now setting their own goals and trying to stay fit.
To encourage this we now offer our Sporthive Virtual app for free, for you or your customers to bundle these efforts into a virtual race experience during the COVID-19 outbreak. Upload your virtual results to our Sporthive result platform and combine it with our Selfie functionality, which can be used by athletes to upload proof of their virtual race result.
This way your customers can still connect with their event participants and audience in an accessible way, until the live events are rescheduled and back on.
1) How to use THE virtual app?
