Have Your Friends & Family Follow You on Race Day!
So you're getting ready for the upcoming Disneyland® Half Marathon Weekend. Made your final training run, check. Packed your Stitch themed running gear, check. Sneakers, check. But there's one more thing we want to make sure you don't forget, and that's telling all your friends and family how they can follow you on your way to the finish line!
Our friends with AT&T have helped to create some enhanced mobile-magic with AT&T Athlete Alerts. If you’ve used runner tracking in prior races, you know it’s fun to have your friends and family receive notifications about where you are on the course and when you finish. This year runners in the Disneyland® Half Marathon and Disneyland® 10K can choose to have a variety of fun Disney-themed status updates posted directly to their Facebook and Twitter profiles.
But wait, there’s more! Not only can Half Marathon and 10K runners communicate to their friends and family, but with the AT&T Text To Screen, friends and family can send text messages for you to see on multiple screens throughout the courses.
Here’s how you can get set up to experience a little mobile pixie dust:
1) Text your bib number to 345678 to sign up and register for AT&T Athlete Alerts. You can even sign up the morning of the race!
2) Visit att.com/disneylandhalf where you can opt in to share your progress with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
3) When you visit the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, look for the AT&T Brand Ambassadors at the AT&T kiosk. Don’t forget to take a selfie with your bib number too!
4) Your friends and family can text messages of support to 567890 (or tweet using #DisneylandHalf) to congratulate you on the big screens along the Half Marathon and 10K courses (depending on the event course, screens will be located at the start line, Angel Stadium of Anaheim for the half marathon only, finish line and Family Reunion area
Have a great time during the weekend events!
