VALYERMO, CA (BRAIN)—Slowtwitch.com recently acquired the multisport race calendar Findatriathlon.com and incorporated it with several updates into its very popular multisport Web site.
This race calendar had most of the functionality Slowtwitch was looking for when contemplating its own calendar, persuading Slowtwitch staff and developers to acquire and improve, rather than build the code and architecture from scratch.
Part of the new calendar is a "Tag this race" feature. This utility allows readers to "build" a "personal race calendar," a feature that will be included on a new and more robust User Profile. This feature will also allow users to schedule race venue get-togethers so popular among the Slowtwitch community.
The new Slowtwitch race calendar shares a login with the Reader Forum. Creating a user account in one application creates the account for the other. The login is "sticky," allowing migration across utilities without the need to log in again.
This race calendar will be searchable by race type, race distance, by state, by region, with the events displayed chronologically or by proximity.
