Largest Database of Results for Athletes
Disclaimer: I'm writing this review of Athlinks as part of being a BibRavePro.
Use Athlinks to Track Your Progress
Athlink uses information from race directors and athlete communities to fill the database. When results are posted online, the Race Director sends files and/or links to the Athlinks team. Athlinks uploads the information to the website and database.
I had 30+ races done when I opened my free account. It was fun to create my profile, then link to all my races. It didn't take long to assemble all my stats on Athlinks. Now, I see my progress all in one place. While I'm not the fastest runner, progress keeps me motivated.
Athlinks gives you a few ways to view your race results:
Feeling competitive? Click the Rivals tab (shown below) to see how you compare to other runners. If you run the same race as someone you follow, Athlinks keeps tabs on who beats who.
Plan Your Race Schedule with Athlinks
Whether you're already registered, or looking for your next race, Athlinks is an impressive planning tool. Use it to view upcoming races so you can plan for training and recovery.
To find a new race, enter an event name, date range, location, and/or type of event. Hit search and Athlinks will show your results. Below are results from searching for races near Tampa, Florida between May and December, 2018.
As you can see, there are clickable links for previous years. Use those to see stats on the race. You can search results, see the number of participants, winning times, weather, etc. You'll find a lot of useful info. BTW, there were more results than I'm showing here.
Free Training Plans and Advice
Yep, there's more than statistics. Athlinks has resources for endurance athetes. You'll find advice on training, gear, and nutrition. Visit the Athlinks Blog for details.
Featured Events and Destination Races
Have your eye on a special race? You'll find plenty of featured events and destination races on Athlinks.com. There are descriptions of racecations for foodies, special attractions, charities, and landmarks. FYI, I want to run the Pittsburgh Half Marathon next May.
You'll also find articles on gear, coaching, the best races for first-timers, races for people who like to party, and more.
There's An Athlinks Mobile App
Take Athlinks with you using the mobile app. You can stay up-to-date with race details using the official event feed.
Share your race with family and friends. The mobile app has animated maps that predict your location during an event. Your peeps can track you on course. It's perfect for meeting up during and after the race.

This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)

Remember, I am not a running coach. I don't even play one on TV. Please ask your doctor or professional for advice specific to your body.
I just want to share what has worked for me. It's my hope that this website informs and inspires so you can enjoy an active, healthy and happy lifestyle.
Please feel free to contact me by email or social media with any questions or concerns.
