The invention relates to an application server for use in a mobile communication network, the applicat ion server being arranged for: - receiving position information on positions of a first mobile terminal; - calculating a distance traveled since a starting time for the first mobile terminal; - comparing the distance traveled with a distance traveled by a competitor to render a relative distance; - sending feedback information to the first mobile terminal relating to the relat ive distance. The competitor can be based on a real participant that has done the race before (in theory the end-user itself) or a fictitious opponent that was selected on criteria like average speed. The system can be used during races and may provide information to participants, spectators and officials via bill-boards and/or voice messages and/or SMS messages.
