RA Race Calendar (Read 1381 times)


You'll ruin your knees!

    ...might as well throw in race sign-up too! Approve

    ""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)

      As for the past race experience portion, you could always add a sort of poll ranking from 1-5 for race, organization, expo, post race food, etc... if you thought that might be helpful.  marathonguide.com has something similar on their site where everyone gives their opinion of the races each year.

        Matt,

        You have really set the standard in feature requests!  With so much effort already put into it, how can I say no?  I thought about adding race listing for a while but it never resulted in anything because there are already plenty of websites doing it.  Your proposal provides additional value to the community, which is what I am looking for.

         

        I think most of the questions you raised shouldn't be problematic.  I need to think through how everything would piece together, especially since it might become a part of some other big project Wink

          Big grin - Cool - Thanks Eric! Look forwards to seeing this become part of RA (or some other big project) at some point in the future. If there's anything I can do to help with development or testing please message or email me; I would love to support.

           

          As ever, thanks for everything you do with the site. RA Rocks!

            Thanks Matt and Eric!  Looking forward to this feature.

            I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

              OK, I really have nothing to say about the actual feature requested, but I do want to add that to all the people out there thinking about a feature, THIS THREAD SHOWS YOU HOW TO ASK FOR IT.

               

              Good googly moogly, Matt, I wish I had you for a client for work.  I'd actually be able to build applications properly.

              Needs more cowbell!

                I like the part where I'm not a FMM participant, but attend and drink beer at the end.  Heh.

                I shoot pretty things! ~

                '14 Goals:

                • 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)

                • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

                  The next time I need to ask anybody for anything I'm going to ask MattJ to do it for me.

                   

                  Thanks Eric!!!   RA is and always will be the best.

                    I did think through the "hide my participation" option though and am not sure if it is needed, at least at this early stage. Here's why:

                    In the way I've written this up the race is really just a forum thread with a bunch of extra info lumped on top. It is not linked to training plans for individuals so RA will not know you are running a race unless you tell it specifically in the race thread. If you don't want anyone to know you are participating then you can just subscribe or follow the race, like any other thread. I guess I came to the conclusion that "hidden" participation has no value in this implementation - maybe wrong here. 

                     

                    I think I understand what you're saying but honestly, based on the mock up, I just trust what your wrote is true.  Smile

                      Does your family know you indulge in the FMM lifestyle? Joking

                       

                      But seriously, let me add to the accolades about this feature request.

                        Love this idea, and superlove your presentation of the idea.  Holy cow!

                          Great idea and awesome presentation! I think it would be a really cool and original feature.

                          2014 Goal: Run Monkey as my first marathon. Brilliant!

                            Matt,

                            ..... Your proposal provides additional value to the community....

                              I laughed.
