Gametiime is evolving. We can’t wait to share more…

Tomorrow is a new Day 1…


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.

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.
