Ahotu Marathons tracking postponed or cancelled run events globally

first_img Related Ahotu Marathons, which operates the worldsmarathons.com digital platform and events directory, has released a tool to track the status of run events globally.In a release the company noted… ‘The pandemic has turned the world upside down and severely affected the global endurance industry. Thousands of events have been cancelled, postponed or turned into virtual challenges. Keeping track of all changes is a massive task. During the first five month of the pandemic, 7,300 events have been updated each month on average.’“We noted a high rise in questions from participants and decided to put in an extra gear to keep our global event directory up-to-date,” said Jean-Loup Fenaux, the ultra marathoner and founder of Ahotu Marathons, billed as ‘the world’s largest marathon calendar’, listing over 70,000 endurance races in 205 countries.He continued, “In many cases, we give more accurate information than what you find on the organizer’s own websites.”Another claimed benefit of the tracker tool is that it can help organizers plan their events for 2021. The platform suggests that ‘Organizers can follow peer events and also identify future popular race dates.’Fenaux added, “As the industry is very dependent on a successful 2021, it would be a shame that popular events in the same region would be scheduled on the same day.”Ahotu Marathons is part of the Swedish World’s Sports Group (WSG), which was founded in 2016. It offers the worldsmarathons.com digital platform where runners can discover and sign up to their next challenge.marathons.ahotu.comlast_img
