Let’s Start a Running Races Community

There has been tremendous interest in the Running Races website with hundreds of people visiting each day. To make this website even more informative, it is necessary to leverage the knowledge and experience of all its users about the events for which they have information and have attended.

Let’s start a community of runners who can help and inform others in order to make better choices as to which events are best suited to their interests, fitness levels etc. This helpful information can come in the form of event reviews. See screen shot of the review section of a event listing which is found directly below all the event’s details near bottom of the page. In order to spur the interest in developing this community, RunningRaces will be giving a weekly cash prize (in the form of gift card) to the best reviews on existing events.


Now when it comes to events reviews we are looking for the following:

  • Honest reviews
  • Informative – how helpful is the review information
  • Could describe the course, what are the hightlights (and lowlights)
  • Is the event well organized? Refreshment Tables – are they well stocked?
  • Is the event well attended? What is the vibe/mood of the race?
  • Parking – is this an issue?

These are just a couple of ideas on what would make a great review.

Avoid making reviews too long.


Details of the prize:

Weekly prize of a R100 e-gift card for either  Sportsman Warehouse or Total Sports (or any other outlet offering e-gift cards).
