Melbourne Marathon running on EventDesq
With thousands of competitors ever year, the Bank of Melbourne Marathon is one of the world’s premiere long distance sporting events. To facilitate the mass number of runners participating in the annual event, Melbourne Marathon required a robust system that could support high-traffic during signup with seamless payment integration, and provide race results to those fit enough to complete the 42 kilometre course.
"The EventDesq system gives us all the tools we need to handle registration for thousands of competitors," said Tim Crosbie, Bank of Melbourne Marathon Festival Competition Director. "As well as the Marathon, we have a wheelchair marathon, the Flight Centre half marathon, Coffee Club 10km, ASICS 5km run and 3km walk. EventDesq provides a system that allows us to administer all our competition events from anywhere we have web access – even the start line."
"IMG Sports Technology Group has provided efficient, professional event registration technology to the Melbourne Marathon for several years. While the technology side delivers the results, the important part of the relationship is with their staff who are always responsive to our needs and work with us to help improve our offering. They also provide our event website making it convenient dealing with only one provider."
