Use the Virtual Racer app to record the start and the stop for the Kid's races. The kids do not need to carry a mobile device with them. A parent or other that processed their registration can record their time using the RunnerCard Mobile App, Virtual Racer.
Use the Virtual Racer app to record the start and the stop for you in the 5K. You will need to carry your mobile device with you during your run. If you have a GPS watch, you can use that device to record your time and your distance. After your run, create a GPX export file and submit it into the system to have your effort included in the results!

All finishers are included in a prize drawing for BYU gear! Age division winners will be sent a medal!

Be sure to post photos and video of your efforts and include the hashtag of #byucougarrun

All proceeds benefit the BYU track and cross country teams to support the BYU facility and our home meets.

Let's run for BYU Homecoming!

IMPORTANT: If you plan on using our android/ios virtual racer app then please first post your result to "Test your Mobile Device" race. For this please register for this race first. It is free! Since some devices are not compatible with our apps, please do a 1 or 2 min walk/run and see if the map shows your run correctly. If you miss this step, your race might not be recorded properly and we might not be able to determine whether the run was valid or not. If you plan on using some other system or app to record your run you can import your gpx file.

We invite you to test that the app is setup correctly on your phone. "Run" this race to verify that your phone is configured to record your GPS progress during the race, even in the "background". In the app enter a Location Setting of "While Usng the App" to allow your phone to receive GPS signals while in background mode. This is needed in case during your run you: receive a text, a phone call, your screen is blanked, or your screen times out. Just touch the Start button and walk/run 50 ft. in one direction, then turn right or left and go another 50 ft. or so. Touch Stop. When you view your results, if your phone is working correctly, you will see where you walked/ran on the map. If so, you are ready to go! If not, check your location settings again.
