If You’re a Runner Step On Over to Athlinks

The motto at Athlinks is “Compete. Connect.” It is a large community for endurance athletes. It also is a great database for all major and many minor running races, triathlon, swimming, cycling, mountain biking results. If you’ve run a major race in the last few years odds are your results are on Athlinks.

Once you create an account you can claim the results you want (you don’t have to claim every results) and keep all of your results together on your page. You can add friends and communicate with other endurance athletes.
From the Athlinks website:

Each year, over 10 million athletes in the U.S. cross a finish line at an endurance event. For most of us, it’s not about the medals, or the prize money, or the roaring crowds. It’s about results. It’s about getting better each race – going faster, going farther, beating a rival, or lifting up a loved one. It’s about the hours, minutes, and seconds scribbled on the back of a race bib or on a row in a spreadsheet.

We set out to make capturing those rewards as simple as typing your name into a search box.

Athlinks is the largest results database for competitive endurance athletes in the world. We pull in times for running races, triathlon, swimming, cycling, mountain biking … pretty much any timed endurance sport that you can think of – if we can find the results, we will add them to the database and link them to our members’ accounts.

 

I was introduced to Athlinks last year when I started running. I’m one who likes charts, tracking and competition so I’m a big fan of Athlinks.
