It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We know there are some last minute shoppers who are still scrambling for their gift ideas. If there’s a runner, biker or swimmer in your life we have the perfect gift idea for you: an event entry.

Find a race, hosted on Race Roster, in your area that a loved one is interested in attending and make sure they have a button titled ‘Buy a Gift’. Follow the info graphic steps below if you’re a participant or send the following info graphic to your participants, if you’re an event organizer. We’ve also listed activation steps for event organizers at the bottom of this blog post.
