Free Race Photos!
Sign up to get your Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon photos for FREE!
That’s right, this year everyone will get access to Free Race Photos! Participants will have the ability to share all their race photos on Facebook and/or download them at no charge after the race. You can also purchase high resolution unbranded individual prints, race album packages or race branded products. Hi-res photos will be available after the race.
We encourage you to opt in early (beginning Aug. 16) and have your Free Race Photos post directly to your Facebook account once they go live after the race. Once you have your bib number in hand (received via email on 8/16 by 2pm), you will be able to sign up to take advantage of this great opportunity to share your race experience with your friends and family. Those who opt in to post to Facebook will be entered into drawing to win one of 10 free entries into the 2018 event.
Be sure to wear your bib on the front to ensure the photographers capture your bib number in the photos and keep your race bib uncovered and in clear view. We recommend stopping your watch a few seconds after crossing the finish line so it may be possible to identify your photograph. Be sure to stop by the finisher’s photo station just after you cross the finish line to capture the moment!
You have two options (you can use both) to access your photos!
Option 1: Pic2Go
Follow the steps below to post your event photos on Facebook:
- Enter your bib number.
- Select continue and choose how to share (Public, Friends, Only Me).
- Your photos will post to an album on your Facebook timeline.
- Photos will auto-post to your Facebook page in batches over time as they are tagged by our team. Some photos will even post before you cross the finish line so your friends and family can see how much fun you are having on the course! You can remove any photos from your timeline that you do not want to keep.
Your Medal is Also a Wine Stopper!
That’s right! Your 2017 finisher medal will look great hanging around your neck but will also be able to shine at your next dinner party. Your guests will be able to Ohh! and Ahh! over your accomplishments for years to come!t. [LEARN MORE]
This year, friends and family will be able to trackÂ triathletes out on the course. This is a FREE service, courtesy of Corrigan Sports Enterprises & Mettle Timing.
Use this helpful information to track your favorite athletes. The message will provide the athlete’s time, pace and expected finish time.
You will be able to receive tracking messages on your mobile phone via text messaging, or have posts placed on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Alerts are triggered when each athlete’s individual timing chip crosses a timing mat that is part of the runner tracking system.
