Welcome to the Trackleaders live tracking experience.
The basic function is to show last known positions of tracking devices over a live map, including route and/or race specific information and analysis. Individual Riders are represented by icons on the map. Click on the icons for more information on that Rider. A sidebar gives a list of all Riders with zoom controls and links to individual tracking history pages.
A few tips:
Time stamps: Keep in mind that the positions shown are the latest available. Trackers send out signals at intervals, ranging from every 2.5 minutes to every 10 minutes. The position shown is the most recent reported, and not necessarily the current position. Pay attention to the time stamps!
Don't Panic: No news is good news. Just because a tracker hasn't reported a new point recently does not mean anything is wrong. Trackers will stop transmitting when stopped, if batteries die or for a number of other reasons. Stay calm and keep checking for updates.
Refresh buttons: Most components in the tracking application either automatically refresh or have their own refresh buttons. This saves having to refresh the entire page in your browser, giving you faster access to the latest data.
Recommended Browsers: We recommend Google Chrome for the best trackleaders experience. Firefox is good, too. If you're using Safari or Internet Explorer, you should switch, and not just for Trackleaders.

Speed: x Follow
Time format: days:hours:minutes. Note that all times are computed from SPOT points and are UNOFFICIAL, best estimates only.
Race flow is a graph of racers progress along the route over time. The x-axis is time and the y-axis is miles covered. You can use this plot to visualize the flow of the race. Some examples of things to look for:
ABOUT THE TRACKER
Heck Epic ITTs 2020
These are the route files typically used for the Heck Epic. This is NOT an official event this year. You are responsible for yourself. We are not responsible for your safety, location, or well being. These are only guidelines for you to use responsibly, on your own, this Summer. Thank you!
Here are the basics:
1. The course will be ridden clockwise: Two Harbors to Ely to Grand Marais to Two Harbors.
2. Riders must follow the gpx file routes. They are available for riders who registered for the Heck Epic (but was then cancelled due to Covid 19.) Please contact Jeremy with questions.
3. Riders are allowed to use any public offering on (or off) course. Restaurants, campgrounds, motels, gas stations, etc are all permissible. Riders are NOT allowed to use friends houses, team support or prearranged drop bags, caches.
4. The files are divided into three sectors. But the completion will be considered as a whole (TH to Ely to GM to TH.)
5. Riders must treat this area with respect. That means no littering, being respectful to those who live on course, being respectful to the space you are traveling through.
6. The ITT (individual time trial) will end October 1. It is assumed that most will complete it well before that date to take advantage of the long days of Summer in the Northland.
Of note: Day 2 between Ely and Grand Marais is particularly isolated. Plan accordingly with food and water.
Of note: Camping in Ely is difficult. Plan on camping outside of town on course (public land only) or staying in a motel.
I love this route and I hope you do, as well. I have thought a lot about the people who live here now as well as those who have called this home for much longer. Offer a moment of thanks for this wild place we are lucky enough to travel through.
Please contact me with questions. And with some care and luck, I hope to see you all together for a 2021 version!
