How It Works
It is easier than it sounds! We recommend all those registered or interested check out this video that walks you through it found at https://www.happytrailsrace.com/happy-trails-5k-video
You will receive an email when you register that contains a link to setup your FREE Ridewithgps account.
This app is easy to use and your courses will be accessed from this app. We recommend saving all courses for offline use before attempting to ensure the course loads properly. When you are ready to start your course you just have to push navigate and you are off to the races. You should see the course in blue lines on your app. Make sure you turn on your sound if you want audio cues!
Once you have pushed navigate you must start moving to begin your timing. When you have gone about 50 feet you will notice the gps is recording and tracking your every move. If the app displays auto-pause don't worry about it and keep moving, this is just the app "thinking".
Ridewithgps will navigate you through the entire course much like the gps in your car would help direct you to the grocery store.
When you have finished the course ***SAVE*** the route by holding down the pause button. Make sure you save the run as public (default setting) and not private so it is visible to the event.
Finishing times will only be recorded for courses completed between May 1st and October 31st.

There will be an overall leaderboard that combines the runners time from all courses. This leaderboard will use segment time not gps time. Ignore the GPS Leaderboard.
Segments are what will be used for timing. We use a virtual "gate" on every course that is approximately 200 feet after the starting area. Once this gate is reached the segment time begins and will not stop until the virtual gate at the finish is reached, again about 200 feet before the end of the course.
Your gps time will differ slightly from segment time. We use segments because we cannot guarantee all runners will stop and finish in the exact spot. By using the gates to create segments everyone is timed on the same exact section of the course from beginning to end.
So long as you are within 200 feet of the starting area when you begin and finish within 200 feet of the finish area you will have no issues.
If this makes no sense to you whatsoever we would tell you to not worry about it, trust the gps program, and enjoy the courses!
Male and female with the fastest overall leaderboard time for the series will receive a plaque for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
Local time: 11:39 AM
Age division medals will also be handed out for the series using the overall leaderboard for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female in these age groups: >20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
These will be mailed out in November with your shirt, finisher medal, and goods
