imATHLETE Launches One-Click Lottery System with Overwhelming Success at Medtronic 10 Mile and Zions Bank Ogden Marathon
Furthering its commitment to providing cutting-edge event management technology to the endurance industry, imATHLETE – a sports registration company that is changing the way event organizers engage with athletes – has recently launched a groundbreaking new one-click lottery system. Truly unique, imATHLETE’s one-click lottery platform was successfully unveiled during the opening of the celebrated Medtronic TC 10 Mile lottery and the Zions Bank Ogden Marathon.
“As the endurance industry continues to grow in popularity, more and more events are moving to a lottery system as a way to level the playing field for participants,” said Jeff Matlow, CEO of imATHLETE, “We saw a huge need in the industry for a simple lottery management tool that could make life much easier for participants and event organizers. So we built it. And we’re pretty darn ecstatic about it.”
The new imATHLETE lottery system provides both race organizers and participants with a seamless, user-friendly experience. With just one click of a button, race organizers can enable a customizable lottery registration for any type of event. The feature also allows race organizers flexibility in setting lottery deadlines, limiting participant entries, adjusting entry fees and managing team entries.
“Being one of the first events to introduce this one-click technology to the running community was exciting,” said Virginia Brophy Achman, Executive Director of Twin Cities In Motion. “Not only does imATHLETE’s lottery solution enhance the participant’s experience by making it easier and faster to register for this fall tradition, it also accelerates our event’s growth without complicating the lottery process.”
Added Mike McBride, Event Manager of the Zions Bank Ogden Marathon, “imATHLETE’s lottery system blew us away. Simply put, registration for our race has never been easier and more exciting.”
imATHLETE blends registration, fundraising and e-commerce technology with the social networking inherent in running, triathlon, cycling and all participatory sports.
