The Extra Mile: Augmenting the Experiences of Runners and Their Supporters
Paper in proceedings, 2013

In this work-in-progress report we will outline a research for investigating interactions during organized running races. Currently we are investigating the preparation method and how mobile and social technology can enhance user experience when preparing for and running in big events. In the future we plan to prototype a number of augmented running devices that provide additional information to runners and supporters. The goal is to find out whether ubiquitous interfaces applied to a community-based running experience can boost performance and user satisfaction.
