Marathon service design

Because the number of volunteers is not equal to the number of participants and spectators in the competition, the volunteers are burdened with heavy tasks. There is a certain danger that the information among the contestants, spectators and volunteers is not updated in time. This design enhances the relationship between the three and allows for timely exchange of information. Spectators and volunteers can deal with emergencies by monitoring the status of players. Runners can choose to receive music pushed by the system. And the runners' sweat provides the basis for the biobacterial batteries.
