Here's the story, briefly:
My superstar running friend started the site a few years ago. She worked hard on it and grew it to be a great resource for runners in Utah and surrounding areas. She had a passion for promoting running events in the state.
But she moved to CA and started a new site, runnersraceguide.com She wanted to sell her URG site, but got overwhelmed and sent me an email a week ago asking if I wanted it. Immediately the wheels in my little head started spinning. IDEAS! Lots of ideas. The kind of ideas I have absolutely NO TIME for and shouldn't entertain.
But I've decided to GO for it!
So I've taken over the site, given it a lift, tuck - the works. Completely changed the focus and advertising program.
I started a Facebook Page for it, where I host GIVEAWAYS for FREE race entries to Featured Races in Utah.
|The FB Timeline Cover - for now. I'm not nuts about it. Anybody out there good w/ graphic design?!|
So. I'm working hard on this. Hoping it will take off. Already, according to web analytics, the site gets about 2,000 unique visitors per month, and we have a Facebook Group (vs/ FB Page) with nearly 600 members I can directly message. So it's good start!
YOU can help - please LIKE the URG site on FB and enter the contests!
My VISION: A site where the best races in Utah are featured, where Race Directors WANT their event advertised, because all the Running-Enthusiasts swarm to Utah Running Guide!
