Last weekend we provided text messaging services to Ken Long & Associates and through them the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer race in Bloomington, Indiana. This was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our event texting services. For this particular type of event we deliver the race results via text message. The event participants text in a 3 letter code and their bib number to get the results, in this case HOC10000 would have been bib number 10000. If the participant does it before the race they get a response that tells them the results will be delivered once they come in. If the participant does it after the race they get the results immediately.
Race Results typically look like this on your phone:

We have done a few races for Ken Long & Associates and with each one we see greater participation rates than the last. We look forward to doing the inaugural Indianapolis Monumental Marathon and Half-Marathon with them on November 1, 2008. If you’re signed up be sure to text your bib # in (example: IMM1000) to 71813.
