Kjerag.com was set up as a Pan European site raising money from online registration of extreme sports events. Unfortunately, while it didn’t get massively into debt or financial disaster, it didn’t make enough money fast enough and was frozen in August.
Luckily for us Ex-Olympic cycling Coach and Kjerag English editor Dave Smith thought the idea was too good to let die and has now revived content on the English site.
“90 percent of entrants to the 2001 New York Marathon chose to enter online, and 30 percent for this year’s BUPA Great North run did likewise” Smith told Bike Biz.com. “Our system releases organisers from considerable promotion and administration time and in addition reduces their banking costs.”
“We can easily adapt our entry forms to suit any outdoor endurance sport and any entry fee structure. We can even enable competitors to reserve and pay for their event merchandise online.” He continued.
So if you want to search for and enter an event or set up registration for an event of your own (however big or small) head over to the site now. It’s also worth checking regularly for some excellent sports and fitness stories such as American track sprinters being fined for bringing down several other riders in the ‘Goodwill’ games or how having no mates makes you less healthy.
