We have received great feedback on the Strava integration. Races love the fact they can extend the meaning of their race from just race day into the training part of the race – thus extending the race brand and meaning. Races also appreciate that Strava is providing sponsor dollars when new users sign up for Strava from their race websites.
We have collaborated with Strava to provide some additional functionality that will bring races even more ways to benefit from this technology partner.
The new settings can be found on the National Sponsors Page (Strava even pays your race when new Strava members join!).
Strava Club Integration
We have made it simple to integrate your race with a dedicated Strava Club. Once the connection is made, then existing Strava members will be redirected to your Strava Club page when they click on one of the Strava links on your RunSignUp Race Website (for example the Strava sponsor logo or the links on the Strava page). For new Strava members, they will redirect to your club once they sign up for a seamless experience.
When you make the connection to your club, we automatically highlight the club on your RunSignUp Race Website:
Strava Featured Running Races
You can now add your race to the Strava Featured Races list:
Just fill out the form here. Note: It can take up to several weeks for your race to appear on Strava’s featured running race list if your race is approved.
Strava Logo Pack
We have added a full pack of Strava Logos to place on your website and email.
Strava Direct Link
We’ve made available a direct link that you can use on your own website and emails to highlight your Strava club.
As we get more feedback, we will take a look for ways to further integrate. Also, we will be having a joint webinar with Strava in the coming weeks.
