Sportstats, the world’s largest timing and results company, continues to grow with the announcement of its newest brand additions, VirtualRun.World and Race Supply. Created in response to the cancellation of events by the COVID-19 pandemic, VirtualRun.World keeps people active and engaged by offering the ability to race virtually. Currently shipping in Canada, the United States, and Australia, the brand continues to grow its global presence.
VirtualRun.World strives to offer a premier virtual racing experience with the opportunity to submit results, see rankings, interact with an online community, and earn high-quality, beautiful, themed medals. Thousands of participants have already chosen VirtualRun.World as their virtual race destination. This move into virtual racing brings with its new offerings for race organizers and the ability to pivot from in-person to virtual events.
Race Supply aims to help organizers host and prepare for their events, while making this process as easy and stress-free as possible. From bibs to shirts to best-in-class medals, Race Supply offers a one-stop shop for race kits, along with access to design, fulfillment, and customer service teams. With the introduction of VirtualRun.World and Race Supply, Sportstats continues to offer the same great level of service it has become known for, beyond timing and results.
VirtualRun.World and Race Supply join existing Sportstats brand, iRun. Acquired by Sportstats in 2014, iRun informs and inspires runners with a uniquely Canadian perspective on the activity and sport. Now available in digital format, iRun continues to expand its reach, providing education, motivation, resources, and advertising opportunities.
From timing, live tracking, and results, to advertising and virtual race hosting, to race kit supplies and fulfillment, Sportstats is growing and evolving with the ultimate goal of helping its clients continue to produce world class events.
“We are so excited to bring this new brand and services to the industry. The introduction of Virtual Run World has enabled our company to keep the entire workforce during the pandemic and they have offered incredible customer service along the way,” says Marc Roy, CEO.
