We can’t wait to #OptOutside

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

What’s the buzz about our next virtual event, Doggy Dashers?

doggy_dashers_logo_green2_mediumpaddingWe 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

Three Barks for The Puppy Run, animal rescue, and more virtual events coming your way!

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.

tag_thepuppyrun_1433698777If 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:

  1. Three run distances for participants to choose from (5K, 10K, and half marathon)
  2. Customized ribbons for each of the distances above
  3. The addition of a dog registration specially-made for our favorite running buddies
  4. A more streamlined process for submitting your finishing time

Gametiime wraps up the Pi Day 5K, donating $900 to empower STEM education for girls

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:

  1. The opportunity to run as part of a uniquely-connected online community
  2. Being part of a fun-themed event with an impactful cause
  3. 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.

Gametiime launches first virtual run, sells out in a flash

We’ve recently started working on a stealth project for the Gametiime running community. While still aiming to give people a better way to live out their running journey in a more socially-connected and meaningful way, this project was built to do so in a different manner than the social race directory we’ve built to empower people to find and save races around the US.

Our hunch told us runners needed it so we quickly got to work.

In just a few weeks, we launched our first virtual run. We called it the Pi Day 5K, in playful celebration of the mathematical number and scheduled for (most appropriately) 3/14/15.
