SMS Track your runner campaign
The Two Oceans Marathon Association and RaceTec would like to apologise to all the runners, their family and friends, regarding the fact that the update smses were not delivered, or were delivered late.
RaceTec did sms an apology to all who signed up correctly for the campaign, i.e. put in the correct race number without extra letters or digits.
As theses SMS campaigns rely solely on technology, it is unfortunately out of our control when this technology fails, as it did on race day due to technical problems related to the weather.
R7 of the R10 goes to the networks (Vodacom, MTN etc.) and the balance is donated to the race charity I Am Water Trust and SANParks. Subscribers to the SMS track your runner campaign were all made aware of the proceeds going to charity.
The SMS campaign is in no way done to make money, but purely as a service to those taking part and unfortunately there is no back up for network failure and no recourse with the networks either. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
