Got a Running Blog? You can use to Interact with your Audience!

We’re avid runners, and we’re avid bloggers, too. We often write about our running. And we know that heaps of our friends in the running community are just like us, too, with lots of runners operating amazing running blogs.

For this reason, we’ve always been keen to make sure that running bloggers are included in any new project we create at, and, in this post, I’m going to explain to running bloggers how they can use tools and systems to interact with runners who visit your blog – and also to maintain their interest and (in some cases) raiseĀ  a little extra revenue!

1) Race Maps On Your Blog

If you have a running blog, chances are you’ll be blogging about races. You audience will want to know about races happening in your (and their) region. Our race maps, whether regional or global, may be embedded in your website or blog.

To embed race maps directly into your blog or website, click here.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Decide whether you want a regional race map or a global race map;
  2. Click on the map you want;
  3. Copy the embed code placed on that map page;
  4. Create a new “Page” or “Post” in your website, and call it “Races in the UK – Map” (for example!) and write in whatever text you’d like to introduce the map – you are welcome to include advertising alongside our race maps, too, if you are a professional blogger;
  5. Copy and paste in the “embed” code where you’d like your map to display. If you use WordPress, you must embed the code in “HTML” screen mode, and save the document without switching back to “Visual” editor.
  6. Hit “Publish”

That’s it, you should be able to see a race map on your website. This map is fully interactive, and will update every time a new race is added to, or, when a race date passes, old races automatically are removed from the map, too, to make sure you’re only displaying races which have yet to take place. Useful for your audience, and they’ll stay on your website for longer.

Why Would I Do This?

Quite simply, the race maps can act as a “pull” in their own right, bringing a new audience into your blog or website, and helping you to reach more people. You’re also helping to promote races around your area, and across the globe, which means more people will be willing to put on more great races in which runners like us may participate!

2) Become a Partner

If you’d like to make extra money from your running blog, you may be interested in the Partner Program. This is where we partner with your running blog to sell our products to your audience. Every time a sale happens through your checkout – which may be hosted directly inside your website or blog – you’ll be credited and paid for a sale. No risk. Only revenue.

We pick and pack the products, and collect the payments, before sending you a monthly cheque, paypal payment or bank wire transfer.

Click here to find out more about the Partner Program.

3) Use the Facebook Race Maps App

If you have a Facebook fan page, you can use our Race Maps App from Facebook to embed maps of running events directly into a “tab” on your Facebook page. It is a simple one-click signup process.

All you have to do is:

  1. Click here and add the Facebook Race Maps App (opens in a new tab or window)
  2. Select the Facebook Page you’d like to add race maps to;
  3. Hit “Add Page Tab”!
  4. That’s it! Too easy…

There’s More…

There are many more ways in which you may become better connected with, including by Following our Twitter and hitting “Like” on our Facebook I Love Running page.

Please feel free to leave a comment below if you have ideas, or if you run into difficulties with implementing and of the above.
