Centre Island - Toronto, ON
Always ready to meet even the tightest deadlines, the Quest Audio Visual team was approached by Nike a week prior to the Nike Women’s 15k Toronto race and called upon to support a unique and critical element of this event.
All runners were equipped with a special RFID chip in their numbered race bib. We had cameras set-up at the 5km and 11km points along the beautiful Centre Island racecourse. As the runners ran past these checkpoints the RFID chips would trigger the camera to take their picture. Quest AV provided 3 4mm LED walls at the finish line. As the runners passed by their photo would appear on the LED wall, immortalizing their achievement This event was logistically challenging being on Centre Island and having access to only one vehicle ferry so we parked our trucks on the island the day before ensuring a prompt set-up time come race day. Another challenge was meeting power requirements for all of the gear. We utilized multiple generators per LED wall to ensure that everyone had their moment in the spotlight.
