Adventure Races

The YB3 unit is designed for the harsh realities of adventure racing: waterproof, rugged and reliable. In challenging situations such as dense tree cover, ravines, and tough terrain, the YB3 outperforms all competing products. Battery life is good enough to provide 15-minute tracking for a week long event without recharging.

How does it work?

We know that you have a lot of things to deal with when organising adventure racing events. Our aim is to make the 'tracking' part as simple as possible for you. We provide:

  • Delivery to you, and collection afterwards

  • Global service - anywhere in the world

  • The YB3 trackers

  • Our award-winning web-based race viewer

  • Two-way messaging for competitor assistance

  • Replay facilities

  • Support before, during, and after your event

  • Access to our Apple/Android app

Our YB trackers have very large battery capacities, and are designed to work for long durations. When the trackers arrive with you, they just need to be given to the team, attached to the outside of their rucksack (or similar), and then turned on by pressing a button.


We take it from there, and make sure that the units are working, and help get everything ready for the start of the race.

We already provide tracking for New Zealand's 'GODZone', Canada's 'Cains Quest', and Australia's 'Red Bull Can-You-Make-It' - as well as smaller events with just a few participants taking part. If you choose YB for your event, you're in good hands.

Ultra / Extreme Marathons

If your racers are heading into the wilds, keeping track of their location and being able to send and receive emergency alerts outside of mobile phone range is essential. YB trackers proudly support incredible events like the Cape Wrath Ultra.

Mountain Biking

Endurance Mountain Bike Racing

MTB endurance events can take competitors well outside of mobile signal range. YB Tracking provides GPS tracking devices, delivering real-time location data wherever your riders go, for safety and live leader-board results.
