I have some exciting news! For 2018 BibRave is partnering with Athlinks!
What is Athlinks?
Athlinks is the destination to view, save and share every finish time for every finish line you’ve crossed – all in one place. Athlinks.com and the Athlinks app for iOS and Android is a comprehensive resource for athletes to connect with friends (and fellow BRPs!), compete with rivals, discover new challenges and races, and enjoy a connected, consistent race experience. And it’s all FREE!!
The platform is an great way to create a resume of all your past race results, link upcoming races to your profile, and find out what other runners will be at your events. You can even message friends! Athlinks makes finding, claiming, and sharing all of your hard-earned results easy. If you’ve crossed the finish line in the last 10 years, you’ll find it here.
There is a desktop platform and a mobile app. Both are really easy to use. You simply create an account with an email or facebook, fill out the required information, and then start claiming your races. The Athlinks platform searches races and finds race results for races you may have run. You can then claim those results and they are added to your race resume. It even saves your PRs amongst the races you claim.
There are several great features on the Athlinks platform besides claiming and storing all of your race results. The app can tell you upcoming races near you. And you can even have Athlinks help you set a goal for an upcoming race based on your past results.
The Athlinks platform even tells you specific details about races you ran. You can see the weather on the day of the race, your placement details, in addition to your finish time and pace.
It’s also a fun way to connect with other runners. You can search and follow other runners and even set up friendly rivalries between runners. You can also see who might be running upcoming races so you can connect with friends.
They have a newsfeed coming soon with scrolling information. The desktop platform has great suggestions for different races, such as “Best Events for First-Timers” and “Best Events for Partying”.
For 2018 Athlinks is running the Win in 2018 campaign. Just sign up and claim your results and you could win one free race entry to one of their premier partner events or a one-year TrainingPeaks subscription! Start your 2018 goals off right with Athlinks.
