The project MarathonNet develops wireless sensor networks for monitoring runners during marathon events. The application requires a high degree of connectivity In order to provide actual data for runners and spectators. Depending on the distribution of the runners on the track, the communication range and the number of base stations network partitions might occur that reduce connectivity. To Investigate these dependencies In detail we conducted various simulations on connectivity. In this paper we first Introduce the application scenario and discuss the impact of the different parameters and their Interrelations. We then present the simulation results and discuss their consequences for the application design.
