Bayshore Half Marathon Fills in 19 Minutes

Our online registration system, byteEvents handled the Annual Bayshore Marathon's registration traffic with ease. 

On Monday, December 1st, the Traverse City Track Club opened registration for their ever popular Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K happening on Saturday, May 23rd. The half marathon is always the first to fill up and just before 9am Monday, our registration system began seeing a giant boost in traffic. 

Below is an image showing how many connections there were to the website and at what times. The connections maxed out at 2,400 around 9:02 am, two minutes after registration opened. 

Owner, Tom Barrons & Network Administrator, Ken Schweigert worked hard to create a multi-server platform to handle the heavy traffic Monday morning. Kudos guys! 

A limited amount of spots are available for the Marathon & 10K, so be sure to sign-up before it's too late!
