22 endurance events have been selected as the highest performing experiences across the UK, as voted for by athletes, via the Racecheck race reviews platform.
The Racecheck app and website help athletes find, book and plan endurance events ‘through the power of reviews’. Racecheck launched its awards last year, with winners rewarded for high athlete ratings on the Racecheck platform.
The awards are positioned as ‘the most credible for athletes looking to choose new events to participate in’. The judging is entirely by race participants and is based on a criteria of 30 reviews or more, rating 4.6 or higher. Racecheck added that the awards further support research from MultiSport Research that positioned race reviews in the top six most important drivers of athlete ticket purchases.
Racecheck Co-Founder, Alex Tanti said “We hope these awards inspire athletes when looking for the next challenge. Thank you to all athletes who shared their race experience by posting a race review and to all organisers who believe in Racecheck and want to make their events the best they can possibly be.”
