Question? Answer! – Sharing Results to Facebook

Posted by on December 12, 2012

Every once in a while, we get questions (whether via email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or at races) that we thought might be of interest to more than just that one person. Today was one of those mornings!

I just registered for a fall race and they had a new feature that I had never seen before. I think (if I read it correctly) you could link your splits for the race to your Facebook page, and then it would update for you as you ran. This was new to me. Ever hear of it? Any thought to having a feature where registrants could have their race results automatically tweeted or updated on Facebook? – Josh from Kingston, MA

Neat, huh? We’ve totally heard of it! Check out Share. We developed a feature that allows race directors – whether or not they use RaceMenu for registration and/or timing – to let runners automatically have posts to Facebook when they cross the finish line!

The race director can pick a custom message  (i.e. “Josh just zoomed to the finish at the Blindfold 5K”), and the runner can pick whether to display the finish time or just show that they participated with the race logo posted to the runner’s Facebook wall! (We know that not every race is a goal race – but you still want credit for being there).

If you’re involved with a race that is interested in Share, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for the question, Josh!
