The only thing this is good for is locating bib numbers. Tracker didnt work at all. Race was over and the status was still "they havent started"
B.A.A. Marathon App Reviews
Terrible App with 1 exception
Worked well to see course and to track generally although was inaccurate by a couple of blocks
I was so excited to watch my moms progress in the Marathon today from SC. I was able to search her by bib number, and her name appeared with some basic race info, but when it came to the actual race I could NOT get it to work! Its either a glitch or it is NOT user-friendly. I had to use the full sight on my web browser to be able to track her. Very disappointing. That was the only reason I got the app!
Participant login doesnt work
Participant login doesnt work and the countdown clock isnt accurate.
Doesnt work at all
Not working! Still says participants Im tracking havent started yet. BAA.org site indicates otherwise with their time.

App crashes and flat out doesnt work. Garbage.
Found my runner then it deleted them
Looked up my runner by bib, it found my runner, wouldnt save it then wont find them by by number again. This app is terrible.
Unable to track participant using this app. Did receive push notifications accurately but could not view splits in app- had to go to full site. Disappointed!
This app was a little glitchy, but did the trick. Im hopeful it will be updated and improved for 2017!?!? Any day now... (please)
When will road race organizations start giving us real apps and not templates/web apps in wrappers. I assume this will be updated next week but its a terrible UI. Im a app developer if you guys are looking for a better experience in 2018 I would love to help as Im a Marathoner as well.
I love how it allows you to track the runners you wish to follow along with updates throughout the weekend from the BAA.
-Dates leading up to & date of marathon listed are wrong on schedule section of app -Also location of bus pick up is different than listed on BAA site -Looks as if app has 2016 info & was not updated for 2017 *Updated review - app has been updated- PERFECT! April 13, 2017
Cant login and times are off. Looks nice but, not useable yet!
Participant tracker gets wiped each time you guys update. 3rd time Im having to enter folks in..
App not working 1 day before the race
Wont do participant login. Major fail!
Will there be a 2017 version?
I havent seen any 2017 version show in the App Store yet. Is there going to be one?
I loved being able to track My Heroes during the marathon. And I love that you call them My Heroes
The greatest sporting event in the world finally gets its own app!!!
All in all I like the idea of the app but its a little on the slow side. Speed aside the age is incorrect for the majority of runners since it appears only birth year is being used to calculate age on race day. The standard for running events is to use the event date to calculate a participants age rather than end of year date. Three stars.
