Highlights of the RaceTwitch Resources

Posted on 28 February 2011

As I look back over the last year since developing the idea of Racetwitch while cycling during the DECA Iron Triathlon in Mexico with the goal of creating a resource for athletes to build exceptional race calendars in multi-discipline endurance sports around the world.  It’s been a whirlwind of activity and an amazing short journey.  The best part has been the amazing people we have met all over the world!
RaceTwitch.com platform includes over 8,000 races in 12 different endurance sport disciplines around the world.  If you have a race not included in our database, please submit it through the RaceTwitch.com site.   Also, athletes, feel free to submit a race review.
Endurance Racing Report - This resource offers an opportunity to race directors to have a comprehensive profile to provide additional information not included on the race website for athletes.   It can be used to create more buzz about the race.  Also, included  are content articles regarding training for athletes.
