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.
When: Sunday, Apr 12, 2015 | Where: Horsehoe Lake Park (Woodland, WA)

Jessica Morrow – I enjoy running on my own and definitely do most of my weekly mileage by myself. Sometimes on a long run by yourself you can start to doubt yourself and what you are doing. You come up with excuses to do less than your best. I love races, especially really big races with thousands of participants. Running with friends or running a race with a lot of people gives you visual representation that you aren’t the only crazy person out there. Longer distance races like half marathons and marathons are really fun because you know that most everyone there has been putting in same training hours as you. It sort of justifies your own training. Running is such an odd solitary sport that test your physical and mental endurance. Seeing other runners is like, “Yay! We are all doing this alone, together!”
We launched Gametiime Groups Beta a couple months back and, have since brought on two batches of avid running groups. We’ve seen them connect for meet ups, share tips and experiences, and (of course) have a place to discover and share races they love to do — easier than ever.
Here are our largest groups on Gametiime. Click below to join any you’d like!

Today, we are excited to announce race finisher medals on Gametiime! With these digital mementos, your efforts and achievements will be forever captured and displayed for all to see. Continue reading →
