The go-to place to claim race results And so much more
Fall racing season is right around the corner, and you might be thinking about toeing your next start line—we sure are! In the meantime, we want to share some thoughts about making the most of your Athlinks membership and gaining maximum benefit from the many features of Athlinks.com. We’ve been hard at work enhancing and adding to the experience; now is a great time for you to explore and uncover all that Athlinks membership has to offer athletes like you—still absolutely free.
You know Athlinks.com as the go-to place to find and save your race results. You’re right, but it’s also so much more. Based on the passions and pursuits of our ever-growing endurance sports community, Athlinks is evolving into an all-inclusive information and social hub—the social network specifically designed for athletes. Here are some key ways to take advantage of Athlinks membership, right at your fingertips:
Update Your Athlete Profile
Have you claimed your recent results on Athlinks.com? If not, just search for your name in “Unclaimed Results” to make sure you’ve owned all the results you’ve rightfully earned.
Any new results that you claim will instantly update your personal stats. You’ve worked hard for that PR—now claim it with pride! Looking for an easy view of your PRs in all race distances and disciplines? You’ll find them under the “Statistics” tab on your profile page, along with your ranking within the Athlinks athlete community.
Don’t see the results for an event you finished? Select “Add Event” from the “Event Search” page and add your unofficial time—then we’ll do the work to verify your result.
Did you know you can build out your profile a bit more by uploading a profile photo? This allows people to easily recognize you on race results pages and start lists, inspiring your friends to join you and striking fear in the hearts of your race day rivals!
Connect with Friends, Keep an Eye on Your Rivals
Now, take your membership to the next level by engaging with other athletes. Endurance races are most often solo pursuits; still, we all long to connect with other athletes preparing for and competing in the same events, plus keep an eye on our head-to-head rivals. Athlinks not only enables these connections—we make them easy, entertaining, and fun.
As an Athlinks member, you’re encouraged to follow friends who are also members. It’s simple—just search by name and click to follow.
Once you start building your Athlinks friends list, we’ll even suggest athletes you may know under the “Following” tab on your profile.
You’ll know when the friends you follow have upcoming events or recent finishes, so you can plan to participate or celebrate along with them. You can even filter event results to see only the athletes you follow, rather than having to search through thousands of finish times. And did you know, we provide a place to cheer or comment on any other athlete’s results, plus inspire them to join you on a future start line?
Under your “Rivals” profile tab, you’ll see the athletes you compete against most often. We’re all about helping to fuel your competitive fire; in fact, we automatically build out your rivals list from the athletes you’re following, letting you track their results and plot your next victory—or your revenge!
Discover Challenges, Set Goals, Celebrate Results
Initially, you probably found your way to Athlinks through searching for results—but we also have a rich collection of resources to help you find your next race, set new goals, and share subsequent results. Now’s the time to search for—and share—your next bucket list event.
From your profile page, the Find More Events button leads to our event database, where you can search, explore, and discover races that interest you. For example, you can search for “10K Colorado” to find local 10Ks; or use the filters on the left side of the page to refine your search. Ready to tackle an obstacle race or an iron-distance triathlon? You’ll find plenty of those, too.
Thinking about taking the plunge to sign up for a race, or already registered? Share the event page with your friends on Facebook, directly from Athlinks.com, and see what they have to say.
Add yourself to your event Start Lists and include your goal finish times and other comments with the Athlinks community. Talk about putting it out there—publicly stating a goal is one of the best ways to ensure you stay motivated and committed to reaching it!
When you earn those awesome results, Athlinks allows you to easily share your results and event photos and videos to Facebook. It’s an ideal way to celebrate with family and friends around the globe, and to keep your competitive spirit fired up and hungry for more.
