Charlottesville, VA, February 22nd, 2016 — Results for the 2016 Charlottesville Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon and 8K are set to be delivered with speed and accuracy thanks to Bad the Bone Sports’ latest partnership with Ting, Charlottesville’s local provider of crazy fast fiber internet. Ting has signed on as the Official Provider of Crazy Fast Race Times and has agreed to provide Internet access at the Start/Finish Line in historic Court Square. Serving the Charlottesville community since May 2015, Ting is looking to showcase how their crazy fast fiber Internet can get residents’ and business owners’ connections operating faster and more efficiently.
“We could not be happier to have Ting on board at the Charlottesville Marathon to provide the Internet access necessary at the finish line,” says Dr. Francesca Conte, President of Bad to the Bone Sports. “Race results are important and need to be posted and uploaded to the web as fast as possible. With Ting as a partner, the Charlottesville Marathon results will be live on the site in no time and the runners will be able to check them out right away. The results will also play live real-time on a screen at the finish line. Having “Crazy Fast” Internet at the finish will also allow the runners to share their accomplishment and photos to social media. The race will also be sharing not only the results, but also pictures and news through Twitter and Facebook (@BTTBEndurance and facebook.com/CharlottesvilleMarathon). All this would not be possible without Ting’s technology and we are so very happy and excited to have them on board. Great technology makes a wonderful race even better!”
“We are proud to sponsor the Charlottesville Marathon this year” says Sarah Georges, Marketing Manager for Ting. “As a member of the community, we love supporting the local businesses and non-profit organizations that make Charlottesville awesome! See you on race day!”
