How to follow your runners and leaders in Riga?
It’s easy to find the approximate location of the leader pack – simply multiply 3.2 minutes (average time of leaders) with km to find out how many minutes after the start you will see the leaders at the location you are cheering. The „average” runners’ time is about 5-7 minutes per kilometre. You do the math!
The best way to follow your runner, however, is to use our partner Lattelecom’s cheering system www.uzmundrini.lv (in Latvian – cheer up!) which will provide a possibility to track the location of your runner via internet.
All you have to do is enter the number of the runner and follow the red dot on the map! There will be free wi-fi spots in many places around the city, so you can do it from your mobile phone!
