This week's newsletter is all about the new functions on the Running Calendar, and the chance for premium members to win a free entry to either the Air New Zealand Hawke's Bay International Marathon, Runaway Noosa Marathon or Runaway Barossa Marathon.
When I first dreamed up the idea of the Running Calendar website back in 2008, as well as developing the best event calendar, I wanted people to be able to plan their next events and share them with their friends.
It’s taken several long years to finally add these functions! I guess I was just too busy adding and updating events to do the necessary programming 😀
Logging in, following pages, flagging events & saving searches were added in September. Yesterday I added some great new features available to premium members:
- Search by location lookup
- Get notifications when new events match their save searches
- Export their calendar to other calendars (e.g. Google Calendar)
Premium membership will save you time, and costs just $35 per year. As well as these great new features, you are automatically entered into a monthly prize draw and in the coming months we’ll arrange discounts for events and products.
Sign up before February 1st, and you’re in the first prize draw for a $100 sporting goods voucher and your choice of entry to any of the distances at the Air New Zealand Hawke's Bay International Marathon on May 12th, the Runaway Noosa Marathon on May 26th OR the Runaway Barossa Marathon on October 20th. Many thanks to IRONMAN® Oceania for providing entry to these events which are part of the Runaway Series.
Note that the Running Calendar will always be free to use: the premium membership is optional, enhances your experience and helps support the Running Calendar.
Find out more about our membership system here, and then you can login here and update to premium membership here.
That's all for this week, so have a great running week!
