Forget the holiday sweaters, flannel PJs, and chocolate bon-bons. And don’t even think about another boring necktie. This holiday season, help your Athletes give their family members, friends, and fellow Athletes what they really want: toned muscles and bragging rights. Give the gift of fitness!

Encourage your Athletes to share their love of sport by giving the gift that hurts so good. There’s nothing quite like hard, sweaty miles and the heat of competition—or just a friendly fun run—to make this a holiday to remember. Imagine how happy you’d be to receive a race registration gift certificate from a friend or family member who really “gets” you, and understands the kinds of experiences you love most.

With Athlinks Services, you can add a gift certificate purchase option to the reg path for your events, providing your Athletes with the perfect gift for everyone on their list. Plus, gift certificate sales are a great way to boost your registration numbers and revenue and guarantee more smiling faces on your start line. Now that’s something to celebrate!

Here’s how it works:

  • Athletes may purchase gift certificates within the reg path, to be used on eligible event reg fees.
  • Each gift certificate is delivered as a unique, one-time use comp code.
  • Purchaser will receive a confirmation email containing the code and detailing the redemption process; this email may be passed on to the gift recipient. The email will include:
    • Single-use comp code and value
    • Eligible race(s) name, date, and location
    • Reminder that race registration is currently open, therefore gift certificate is active and may be applied immediately
  • Gift recipient redeems gift certificate value towards registration for an eligible event.

It’s that streamlined and simple, and again, it’s a surefire way to get more Athletes excited about your event. Don’t hesitate—the holidays will be here and gone before you know it. Help your athletes spread some holiday cheer, endurance style, with the gift of hard-earned miles.
