Launched in December 2016 and now with offices in San Francisco and London. We're a young and ambitious team motivated by a shared passion for helping people discover and take part in life-changing challenges. We participated in Y Combinator in winter 2018, and since then have raised $20m in funding from leading VC funds and angels and are entering our next phase of growth.

Running, triathlon, cycling, obstacle racing and many other endurance sports are booming, but it's really difficult to find great events. With the largest database of events in the world, and an engaged community of endurance sports enthusiasts, we're making it easy to find great races, whilst helping race organisers to reach new participants.

See how we became the most talked-about company on our Y-Combinator batch bit.ly/2Hc1k1d(March 2018, Mountain View CA, USA).
