To improve your participants' experience as they complete their race and seek out their final results, adding QR codes to bibs that redirect runners to the event's results page can be a great add-on for race day. Below we outline some best practices to keep in mind when adding results link QR codes to bibs.
QR URL Structure
- Understand the URL structure for your results pages and understand which part of the URL is dynamic based off of the sub-event (image below).
- The end of the URL will change based off the distance of the results page that is selected. If you are looking to include a direct link to a specific race result page, ensure that the correct URL is selected.
