Hi everyone. I hope you’re having a great week….

Who wants to win $25 or even $100 Amazon Gift Card in the next month? There’s a catch, but you also get to be a contributing member of the endurance community in the process. Octane is DETERMINED to create the internet’s best repository for race information.

The vision is a place where you can go to search for information from people just like you about the races you’re thinking about doing. Say you’re thinking about doing the Dallas Athletes Disco X50 next year? You can head to the site and lookup the race and see what people who have raced it say about it. Ironman races… Ultra marathons… Your favorite Bike Rally. There is a place for it.

All you have to do is answer the few quick questions below. Fill in all the blanks and please be thorough. As if you are going to be coming back searching this later (because you probably will). We’re going to draw from the the folks that submit every two weeks for a $25 Amazon gift card and we’ll draw for $100 gift card every month on the 15th. That’s a really nice way to buy a few presents for the holidays.

YES. YOU CAN SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE… and every one you submit gets you a spot in the prize drawing. Like I said… let’s be good about the info we submit. This repository is only as good as the information we put into it. We want as many as we can get and multiples for the same race is great!

Did you like the venue? It was run really well? Was it well supported? Was it spectator friendly? Was it beautiful? That kind of stuff.

Race Day

What did you think of the swim overall? Things to consider... water cleanliness, sighting, buoy placement, buoy frequency, visibility, type of start.
What did you think of the bike overall? Things to consider... road conditions, course topology, course layout.
What did you think of the run overall? Things to consider... course conditions, course topology, course layout.
Be as detailed as you can. The more you share, the better the information is for the folks considering the race. Remember that this system is only as valuable as the information we as a community share about the races.
