Since launching our first batch of running groups weeks ago, we have helped running groups across the country to connect digitally and coordinate race meet ups easier than ever before.
For those of you in these running groups, you are showing us the value of social connections and having the ability to discover races based on what your friends are doing to the tune of 60,000 relationships* between fellow group members near and far — and it doesn’t stop there. All the while, you’ve also helped your respective charitable causes, running clubs, and brand sponsors raise awareness by personifying their mission as a healthy, active, and social race participant.
* A relationship is formed when one Gametiime user follows another and opts-in to receive notifications about the races they have saved, photos they have uploaded, and comments they have posted on Gametiime.
Today, we would like to welcome and say a big congratulations to our next batch of running groups for Gametiime Groups Beta! See the selections below.

We inspire, encourage, and support each in accomplishing goals, share stories and experiences, and celebrate the ups and downs that make running what it is.
CL Fitness – Coach Lesley and her team are passionate about multisport, running, and all types of fitness and weight loss goals. The Team is devoted to excellence in training and passing their accumulated knowledge, as well as their energy and enthusiasm along to clients no matter what their personal goals may be.
ENERGYbits Ambassadors – A team of ENERGYbits Ambassadors around the world! ENERGYbits are 100% organic spirulina algae.

Friends Don’t Let Friends DNF – We are a group of runners whose main mission is helping each other in crossing the finish line and avoiding the dreaded “DNF” (Did Not Finish). Whether it be pacing a friend on their first 5K or marathon, or providing training tips, our goal is to be a wonderful support system, and make running fun and safe for all skill levels.
Gotham City Runners – Gotham City Runners, the brainchild of legendary coach Frank “Gags” Gagliano and coach Josh Maio, provides group coaching and customized training plans for runners of all abilities inviting you to “train like the pros.” Our mission is to continue to cultivate the running community by providing a unique opportunity to learn from and even train alongside elite runners as you work towards your personal goals.

Girls Gone Sporty – Girls Gone Sporty is an online editorial magazine and a social community for women dedicated to living and leading sporty lives. In addition to providing cutting-edge content, we’re committed to creating a support system for women who are striving to be their best selves. We have runners from across the country who train and race as individuals and as teams, looking to connect with other women in their areas and at their race locations.
Girls Run Fast Ambassadors – We are lovers of all things healthy. We love running, dancing, yoga swimming and more! We love to exercise and make a point to make it a part of every day. We have a passion for the good things in life like food, fun and friends! We do not believe that you need to live to the extreme to meet a goal. We teach and don’t preach! We RUN!
Pettet Endurance Project – Purveyors of sweat, disciples of the gut wrenching, soul squeezing power of a marathon finish, and makers of merino wool endurance apparel.
Sonic Endurance – We are a diverse group of runners and triathletes of all abilities from across the United States. We are growing fairly quickly and are looking to keep our athletes in contact and think that Gametime is an awesome platform that would allow our athletes to better communicate and plan races together.
Sweat Pink Ambassadors – Sweat Pink Ambassadors are a tight-knit, fun-loving community of healthy people who support each other in living well and chasing their goals. The Sweat Pink community brings people from all walks of life to support and motivate one another. We include figure competitors and people on weight loss journeys; newbie runners and ultra marathoners, professional athletes and Zumba fanatics, vegans and paleos, and everything in between.
SwirlGear Ambassadors – Our mission here at Swirlgear is to become the women’s running apparel brand of choice while also celebrating the strength, style and spirit of real women runners! We are a brand new company and do not advertise, so we rely on our Brand Ambassadors to help spread the word about our brand by proudly wearing our gear. Team Swirlgear is comprised of everyday women that are simply positive, passionate about health and love to run. They also benefit from some pretty great incentives! Since our Brand Ambassadors are typically busy professionals, full-time mothers, or mix of both, we do not require that they do anything more than have fun while wearing our gear with pride! Not only do they keep each other motivated and share inspiring stories of how running has impacted their lives, but they also love to meet and share photos of them “getting their Swirl on” at running events everywhere!
Team #runDisney – Team #runDisney is an online community for runners of all abilities from all over the world. Comprised of over 10,000 members, #TrD is a place for all to come to find support for those new to running thanks to our members who have a solid running background. The group holds local runs, meetups before races around the country, and special events during runDisney events – our core attraction.
Team Chocolate Milk – This group of athletes drinks lowfat chocolate milk after strenuous exercise since it helps them recover and rebuild their bodies so they’re ready to give it their all in their next workout or competition. They’re passionate and committed to their sport and they’ve made it their goal to inspire others to be their best.
Team VICTORIOUS – Team VICTORIOUS is a team of fierce women (and men) connected through running. The initial members participated as a team with the Nike Women’s Half in hopes to meet one another in San Francisco for the 2012 Nike Women’s Marathon and beyond! Since its grassroots start, Team V has grown with open arms to include those that share the same passion.
ZOOMA Nation – Imagine a powerful sea of women on the move – encouraging fellow runners, creating unforgettable moments, and celebrating personal running triumphs. Picture an inspiring weekend filled with “mocktail” parties, yoga sessions, an exciting expo, and celebrations in an unforgettable resort location.
