Check out ATHLINKS.COM is a very cool and useful website for runners who like to race. It is a comprehensive online race results database for running, triathalon, cycling, mountain biking, swimming and adventure racing. You don't have to join to search for results, but joining allows you to access some of the other features. The most important features are below:

  • Find and consolidate all your race results. You can do this quickly and with one search as opposed to slogging through the results of individual races on different websites. It's a great way to see and maintain all of your results in one place. You can even add races that are not online and consolidate results run under different aliases. This feature will be especially useful for BCRR members "Morry Copulare", "Homer Plate", "Inda Ozone", and "Chip Tyme".

  • Check out the results of friends and competitors. You can then plot the trajectory of their age-related decline against your own, etc... Or let's say a runner with a gender-neutral name like "Chris", "Pat", or "Tracy" beats you in a race and you suspect they are a man instead of a woman. You can check this out in seconds on

  • Network with other runners and groups.

We have a BCRR group already up and running. Check it out and join in at
