Gametiime empowers 60,000 relationships through Gametiime Groups Beta and selects its next batch of running groups

4924230573490176Since launching our first batch of running groups weeks ago, we have helped running groups across the country to connect digitally and coordinate race meet ups easier than ever before.

For those of you in these running groups, you are showing us the value of social connections and having the ability to discover races based on what your friends are doing to the tune of 60,000 relationships* between fellow group members near and far — and it doesn’t stop there. All the while, you’ve also helped your respective charitable causes, running clubs, and brand sponsors raise awareness by personifying their mission as a healthy, active, and social race participant.

* A relationship is formed when one Gametiime user follows another and opts-in to receive notifications about the races they have saved, photos they have uploaded, and comments they have posted on Gametiime.
