Run Motivators Race Review
This Run Motivators Race Review reviews yet another virtual race platform that I've used many times, as opposed to the actual virtual races themselves. Never fear, I will be reviewing the races as well, but I think the platform basically determines how pleasant the experience will be.
There are several websites that offer various virtual races, my reviews are looking like they will be very similar for each race offered by one site. So I thought maybe a review of the platform offering the races would be appropriate so you can decide for yourself if you want to pursue races at each site.
Races Completed with Run Motivators
- Bye, Bye, Bye 2020
- Rise Higher - In Progress
- Invinceable 2021 - Pending
I've only completed the Bye, Bye, Bye 2020 race so far and am currently working on the Rise Higher race. Since this is a platform review, I will just be reviewing Run Motivators itself, instead of the actual races. That said, I'll link the bullets above to the individual races when I sit down and review them.
What I Like
There are a few positive things to tell you about here with Run Motivators race review:
- Supportive Community
The medals are great, very high quality. In fact, the Rise Higher medal is about the size of my hand, it's big. Like other platforms, both the medal and the attached ribbon are nice. Run Motivators also gives you the option to connect with their Facebook community for each race. While I have not done so, I do like having the option.
What I Dislike
It's only fair that my Run Motivators race review should include things I don't like. While there isn't much, there are a few things:
- Bought vs. Earned
- Activity Log
The ribbon attached to the medal is high quality and the design is nice. But on the Rise Higher medal, the ribbon has the website address for Run Motivators listed on it instead of the name of the race. That's just a personal preference but I don't like it. Another thing I don't like is when the medal is shipped out immediately. It makes me feel like I just purchased the medal and didn't earn it. Other platforms, like My Virtual Mission, make you earn the medal before they send it to you. I like it better that way.
Finally, the activity log at Run Motivators leaves a lot to be desired in my humble opinion. On their website, when you click on Log Results, you get a wall of text that you have to read for instructions on how to log your activity for different scenarios. Then you have to click another page based on your scenario and click Add Activity. It's not terrible, I guess. But some other platforms are more clear about how to do it.
Run Motivators Race Review Summary
It's alright I guess.
So, to summarize Run Motivators Race Review, some of their races are super cute. Some are downright awesome. Others are pretty cool. Some are just eh. Their website is mostly user friendly but the medals are sweet, just bought instead of earned.
I do recommend this site, though. Check it out and see if they have any events that tickle your fancy. It's never a bad experience and each time you register for a race, you're sent discount codes for future races. Who doesn't love a sale?
And, by the way, if you're looking for a cool way to track your progress on your races or just to jot down the details, be sure to check out our Virtual Race Journal. These journals allow you to document all of the details of your race from start and finish dates to registration fees and pace times, and let's not forget about that ever so important motivational playlist! Grab one for yourself while supplies last.
