It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We know there are some last minute shoppers who are still scrambling for their gift ideas. If there’s a runner, biker or swimmer in your life we have the perfect gift idea for you: an event entry.

Find a race, hosted on Race Roster, in your area that a loved one is interested in attending and make sure they have a button titled ‘Buy a Gift’. Follow the info graphic steps below if you’re a participant or send the following info graphic to your participants, if you’re an event organizer. We’ve also listed activation steps for event organizers at the bottom of this blog post.

Dennis works on Sales, Marketing, and assists the Leadership Team with Strategic Planning at Race Roster. He is a ‘back in high school’ kind of runner that has toned down his intensity for the sport (and his abs) in recent years. Dennis gets excited about business, statistics, culture and event planning. (Fun fact: he was born as ‘Ingo’ – a pretty popular name in Germany).
