Sporting Events on Active.com
Active.com is a terrific resource that all athletes should know about. Running, cycling, triathlons, swimming, golf, tennis, basketball, soccer and more, are all sports that are covered on the Active.com website. Community wide resources on the Active.com website include newsletters, race results, training plans, free training logs, videos and more.Register for Races
I discovered Active.com a few years ago when I went to register for my first road bike event. The events website included a link to their Active.com registration page. The registration page included all the details about the ride, ride distance options, location of the ride etc… and let me register and pay the entry fee for the event. Active.com sends you an email confirmation once you have registered and paid for the event. I suggest printing out a copy of the registration confirmation and taking it with you, just in case there are any problems when you go to check in on the day of your event.
You can do a search on the site on the sport you are interested in, by state or by zip code, to get a listing of upcoming events in your area. I just did a search of cycling events within 100 miles of my home and came up with a list of over 14 events that take place between this weekend and the end of the year.Subscribe to Your Sports Newsletter
Since my main interest is cycling, I subscribe to the Active.com cycling newsletter, which is sent to me via email every few weeks. The newsletter has links to online articles on a wide variety of cycling topics, including recent cycling news, training guidelines, nutrition tips and more.
So whether you are training for your next century ride, marathon or triathlon, check out the Active.com website for tons of great information on your sport.
