Bibrave Meets Athlinks

This year, Bibrave has teamed up with Athlinks in an effort to help runners and other athletes get on track, claim results and get connected with other athletes. Let’s face it, every runner has different was of tracking their races and it’s probably across a variety of platforms: spreadsheets, log books, websites, who knows what else. Athlinks is a online community where you have all of your races in one place. 1 milers, ultras, triathlons, you name it!

I’ve actually been using Athlinks for about 10 years, when I first started running. I stumbled on it and signed up. It was free and when you’re looking for a cheap (costs nothing) way to keep all of your race results together, I was all for it.  To join, all you have to do is go to http://www.athlinks.com and click on sign up (or click here to make it easy)

You get an option of how to sign up: email, facebook or google. All you need to to is enter your first name, last name, email and password and bam, you’re in! Easy, right? Once you’re set up, it’s easy to start looking through race results already up and to start claiming them. There’s filters so you can search by year, location, birthday (let’s face it, lots of common names, etc). Races will pop up if they meet your demographic information (name, age, location, etc) and you’ll have the option to claim them or not.

Over the years, Athlinks has tweaked and grown. In the past year or so, they’ve added an iPhone and Android app, which makes finding results a little bit easier. They’ve also added features that include joining a ‘Start List’ of races you’re registered to run, where you can see who else is running, and add a goal time to it to give yourself some motivation! After the race, see if your results pop up (heads up, some race results are up pretty quick, others come up in a week or two. Time varies.). Adding yourself to the start list also makes it easy to track all of your races:

The best think about Athlinks, though, is it keeps track of all your race distances and PRs. If you’re trying to figure out when your last one was for a certain distance, all you have to do is pull up your profile and voila, you can see when, what race and what time you had! It’s kept me sane over the past few years for sure, especially with the increased amount of running I’ve been doing. Now that I’m throwing triathlons in the mix, it’ll be even more beneficial! I’ve loved Athlinks ever since I started using it and highly recommend it!
