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 →
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.

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!”
A little less than a week ago, we launched race finisher medals — a way to recognize your efforts and add a little race bling to your Gametiime profiles. Here’s our leaderboard of top 10 race finisher medalists currently on Gametiime. Check out their profiles, give ’em a congrats, and start verifying your race finishes to get medals too!
