Race Atlas is a marketing tool which utilises photo sharing through the process of automated photo tagging. Once the photos have been uploaded to the Race Atlas system, the branded photos are available to members to access. It is important to note, due to member protection, members must opt in to this service.
Race Atlas Process
- Members will receive two (2) Competitions Bibs.
- The bib number is how athletes are identified. All the athlete needs to do is go to the Race Atlas portal (https://photos.raceatlas.com/), enter their bib number and follow the prompts. This will then allow photos captured of you while wearing the bib downloaded. This link may change for some events, and will be received in a post event email.
- Images are taken on ANSW dedicated camera, where available, and uploaded to Athletics NSW’s Race Atlas server
- Athletes can then share directly to Facebook and/or Twitter, email the photo or download the photo
- Athletics NSW and Clubs will be able to track the impressions of the Race Atlas system through Social Media Reach Reports
Athletics is run entirely by volunteers and it is condition of membership that any athlete 16 years or younger be accompanied by a parent or guardian each Friday evening. In order for the evening to run smoothly and efficiently we require parents to assist on Friday evenings. This can be anything from helping on the BBQ to being an age manager or just helping the age manager run the events during the evening – timekeeping, measuring, writing down results etc. None of the jobs are very difficult and we are happy to teach you. We would encourage you to get involved as it makes the evening more enjoyable and go quicker!!!
