THE BALLOON RACE - getting ready to relaunch.

UPDATE 24/10/20  The relaunch is getting closer. Ive been given the go ahead from my solicitor to add a FREE entry by post button, this changes the software from a lottery to a free prize draw. The free entry button will be compulsory on all races. Once this work is scheduled with my developers that will be the launch date.

Even though the site has been inactive for 4 weeks the traffic has continued to grow exponentially and on 18/10/2020 it finally collapsed with more than 200,000 page views. The downtime has been used to help with scalability going forward. The backend database was 11 years old so thats been renewed and moved to a faster server.

To be notified when we reopen, add your details here.

Welcome to the DEMO virtual balloon race. You can run your own race like this for £20+vat with unlimited balloons.

It's easy, choose a start and finish date, add the balloons manually from the admin area or upload a CSV file. You can also add your Paypal details and the site will set up the balloons for you.

Each balloon moves a random distance every hour until the race is over. This is calculated using an algorithm that keeps the race competive and stops a runaway leader.

Learn how it works with this 60 seconds video.

Help support this website and split £100 with me by switching to Octopus Energy. You get £50 free and save money on 100% green electricity. Plus I get £50 to help with the scalability of The Balloon Race.
