Watch this space for news on the new developments – they are exciting, indeed, if you are a competitive runner anywhere on Earth!

We wish the new owners every success with Race-Calendar.com!

Great Gifts for Runners: Running Calendar

The 2013 Running Calendar that we’ve produced over at Race-Calendar.com has arrived from the printers this week and it’s already beginning to cause a stir in the running community.

Almost immediately we got the calendar out of the wrapper, conversations about “which is your favourite month” were beginning. This theme looks set to continue.

A Great Gift for the Runner You Know!

Quite simply, this product is a great gift for runners of all types, distances and brands. It’s motivational. It’s inspirational. It’s also got a lot in its favour as a present, too!

But one thing is very obvious about our A3 Running Calendar: runners love it. This means it will make a perfect birthday or Christmas present for the runner in your life for a number of reasons:

  • The 2013 Running Calendar lasts all year – the whole of 2013!
  • It is inspiring, and will help a runner to get out of the door on a wet, windy, Wednesday in the middle of winter!
  • While you may not know a runner’s size, or what equipment they need or use, you don’t need to with the calendar!
  • It doesn’t matter if they receive two – they can have one for home and one for the office (or even three – one for upstairs, one for the kitchen, too!);
  • You know they won’t already have one of these – we’ve just printed them, and nobody else sells our unique calendars.

Where to Order the 2013 A3 Running Calendar

We are selling the 2013 A3 Running Calendar direct at our Shop.Race-Calendar.com website, which is secure, and can accept payment by Credit/Debit card, PayPal, Google Wallet or you can order from Amazon.

In a matter of days, the first consignment will be reaching Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com, meaning you’ll be able to order with free UK delivery or free USA delivery using the following links:

We’re also looking to add running clubs, charities, sports associations and businesses targeting active runners and the health market to join the Race-Calendar.com Partner Program to help sell the calendars through hosted checkouts. Partners receive a profit share without having to do anything more than copy/paste a link or some code into a website / email or Facebook / Twitter status update from time-to-time. Click here for the Partner Program.

Race-Calendar.com Now Providing Online Entry in 9 Currencies

Play this track while reading:

Race-Calendar.com has this week taken our love of running international.

We already have 51,000+ fans on our Love2Run Facebook, and lots more on Twitter. We already list races across the globe at our Race-Calendar.com website for free. But now, we’ve truly gone global, as Race-Calendar.com has just launched online entry services to races in another 20+ countries; serving runners in a total of nine currencies.

In addition to the free promotional services we’ve always been providing to event organisers everywhere, Race Directors in the following countries and regions are now able to take advantage of an online entry solution, too:

Race Directors in the rest of the world may opt to take online entry payments in US dollars, or use our classic form (for free) for a Race-Calendar.com listing without online entry.

Online entry services can be provided at no cost to the race director, with transaction fees paid by the entrant at the time of purchasing. This means races achieve 100% of their fee target, yet gain the convenience of an online entry solution. In addition, Race-Calendar.com provides a vast number of additional race promotion services – all bundled at no cost!

Plus, we help event organisers, whether charities or professional race management companies to raise extra revenue with our Love2Run T-Shirt and our 2013 A3 Runners’ Wall Calendars which can be added to the event registration checkout for an additional income driver which involves zero work for event organisers. We pick and pack it to your entrants, you collect an extra fee. A win for all concerned, and a great product to keep!

And all because we Love2Run!

Tools For Runners & Running Bloggers / Webmasters

If you are a runner who blogs, or you are the webmaster for your local track or running club, you’ll very likely be interested in the free selection of Tools we have on offer for running websites over at Race-Calendar.com.

For people just like you, we have recently launched a stand-alone repository of tools for runners and running webmasters at Tools.Race-Calendar.com.

All of the tools are free (though posters will require you to print them out – at your expense) and you may use the code examples in the Tools.Race-Calendar.com website to grab yourself a copy of a map, or an RSS feed, and power your running blog or running website with your very own automatic race discovery tool!

Try it yourself today – you will help other runners to discover races, while creating more value for the people who visit your website in the process. You can even devote whole pages of your site to our tools, creating additional page-loads and ad impressions.

What’s more, we support everyone who embeds our maps, or uses our tools (and tells us about it) by providing them with a link from the “Who Uses Our Maps” page.
