Black Friday is but two days away and I am happy to share that FitFam will follow in the footsteps of our fellow Seattle company, REI, to #OptOutside.
With our mission being “To empower people to live a more healthy and active lifestyle”, it was a no-brainer that we wanted to be involved in the #OptOutside campaign as soon as it was announced. #movethemission Continue reading →
We have never been more motivated to #movethemission — to inspire people to live a healthy and active lifestyle. And, there is much more to come in the future.
All previous features you’ve come to know and love on Gametiime are still available — including our race finder, groups, profiles, and followership of inspiring runners.
And, we’ve proud to introduce an innovative and unique offering of virtual event experiences that we would love for you to try. Registration for our flagship event, the FitFam Challenge, is already open and we hope you’ll be a part of it.
Here forward, you’ll receive communicate from FitFam. And, you can continue to connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Thank you for your support and I’d love to hear any of your feedback or questions on our next big step forward! We can’t wait to #movethemission in an even bigger way and we look forward to you joining us in the next part of our journey.
Firstly, thank you for your support of our journey and being part of the Gametiime Community. Over the past few years, we have created a tool to help thousands of runners of all ages and abilities to explore the world of racing and connect as a community — to go further, be stronger, and commit to being your best.
Our mission to empower a healthier and more active world has always been at the forefront of what we do, and always will be. It’s why do we what we do.
This is a big week for us at Gametiime and we look forward to you joining us. In the next 24 hours (and forward), we will be launching a new brand that we believe better and further allows us to empower you. And, our new featured offering will introduce an innovative, engaging way to connect runners seeking to achieve their impossible.
Worry not, Gametiime features you’ve come to know and love will still be available — including our race finder, groups, profiles, and followership of runners who inspire you.
We can’t wait to tell you more about what’s to come. We’ve shared an incredible journey with you thus far, and we look forward to our next path to #movethemission.
Over the course of building the Gametiime community, we have heard numerous requests for an improved mobile experience for discovering and saving races on Gametiime.com.
Today, we are pleased to announce that Gametiime.com has evolved to now feature a fresh, easier-to-use mobile interface. All of the same features you have grown to love — like searching for events in your city or a date range, saving races to your user profile, claiming virtual race medals, and more — are now available through an improved, responsive layout.
Whether you’re using a smart phone or tablet, we’ve improved your Gametiime viewing experience. Please give it a try on your mobile device and let us know us what you think!
We recently announced the launch of our newest event, the Doggy Dashers Virtual Run & Walk — a nationwide event to benefit animal rescue through charity partner Northwest Boxer Rescue.
With the participant community already representing 20 states, we thought it’d be fun to interview a registrant and hear what’s got her most excited about the event. Keep reading to hear why Emily’s so stoked to be signed up for Doggy Dashers! Continue reading →
Gametiime’s second virtual event, The Puppy Run, recently came to a successful conclusion. With nearly 700 runners (including adults, kids, and plenty of four-legged friends), it was another swag-filled, social running experience enjoyed by runners in 44 states across the country.
If you’re not yet familiar with a virtual run, it’s an event allowing runners to run locally but connect nationally (and perhaps even globally in the future). By signing up, registrants become part of an online participant community — centered around the event’s theme and charitable beneficiary. They run where and when they would like (within a given timeframe), share results, photos, and stories of their adventures, and receive exclusive merchandise in the mail to remember the experience.
For The Puppy Run, we introduced some brand-new additions to our offering, including:
Three run distances for participants to choose from (5K, 10K, and half marathon)
Customized ribbons for each of the distances above
The addition of a dog registration specially-made for our favorite running buddies
A more streamlined process for submitting your finishing time
As mentioned in our previous post, our very first virtual run, the Pi Day 5K, was a big success! Before the event, we had a guess that our growing running community and other runners around the country would be jazzed up about three things:
The opportunity to run as part of a uniquely-connected online community
Being part of a fun-themed event with an impactful cause
Receiving awesome, exclusive merchandise mailed to their door!
Over 750 runners later, it was clearly true — the Pi Day 5K was a sweet, mathematical hit. Over the weekend of 3/12 to 3/15, runners across all but 5 states (as well as 3 Canadian provinces) submitted hundreds of photos on Instagram, finishing times for their well-earned miles, and received coveted Pi Day 5K swag and prizes.
