The First GPS Monitored Marathon In Romania


9 o’clock, on the 12th of October, 2009 marked the start of the International Marathon Bucharest, a brand new event in Romania. Five of our colleagues were there to represent our company, AROBS Transilvania Software. During the marathon, the AROBS team members have been monitored with GPS devices, which support TrackGPS localization software solutions, developed by our company. Therefore, the public was able to track their route live, with start timing, speed, etc, on the screen of a laptop located in the immediate area.

The marathon was divided into 5 courses as it follows: The Marathon (42 KM), The Semi-Marathon (21 Km), The Popular Course (4Km), Children’s Course (1km) and Corporate Course –relay race of 4 people- teams (42Km).

AROBS team has participated to 2 of the 5 races, the Corporate Course and Popular Course. The route of the marathon was Parliament Palace- Alba Iulia Square- University – Romana Square – Victory Square – Victory Avenue – Dambovitei Avenue- Romanian Opera – Cotroceni Bridge – Romana Square – back to the Parliament Palace, and the organizers have estimated a number of over 600 .

AROBS Transilvania Software has participated to this event as a sponsor, offering a Smailo GPS navigation system to the winner of the Popular Course.

We thank the AROBS team members for participating!!!
