Have you ever felt so excited to go home after a race so that you can update your Facebook Status? Well, at least after taking pictures of course... If yes, then fret not because Globe has partnered with ChampionChip to send updates straight to your Facebook accounts.
Here are some read-worthy info I got from the Globe Run For Home website:
Get your accurate race time with the ChampionChip, the Philippines' first ever running race chip that was first used last July 19, 2009.
ChampionChips are disposable versions of radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponders. Made of waterproof glass capsules, they contain a silicon chip and an energizing coil. The coil is inactive until moved into a magnetic field, generated by a send antenna found on the race mat strategically located at the starting line, selected checkpoints and the finish line along the race route.
The ChampionChip transmits a unique identification number to a receive antenna that enables accurate tracking of every runner's race time.
Be among the first in the world to auto-share race status updates to Facebook contacts!
Simply indicate your Facebook ID and email address on your registration form and come back soon to install the Facebook Run for Home Live Update application. Come race day, the ChampionChip will send newsfeed updates and race results to your profile as you run past milestones during the marathon.
Get ready to hit the ground running on March 21 at GLOBE RUN FOR HOME 2010 - Converge at Makati City's Ayala Triangle Garden to join one of the biggest urban runs of the year.
