The Boilermaker Road Race is turning 40 this year, and to celebrate Boilermaker officials have unveiled a mobile app.

The app was created as a way to guide both runners and spectators through all the features of Boilermaker Weekend.

The Boilermaker 15K App has live runner tracking for runners in the 15K race, social media 'filters' for Boilermaker themed selfies and pictures and will be fully integrated with all social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat and Twitter.

The app will also have interactive course maps and alerts and information about the race leading up to race day on July 9.

Even if you aren't running but you want to keep track of where your friends and family are on the course, the app will let you know.

Oh, and no more exaggerating about your finish time!

The Boilermaker app is free and available from the App Store and Google Play Market.
