about racesavvy

How it all began

My name is Matthew Myles, and I am the Founder & CEO of RaceSavvy. At age 33, running and staying active has become a big part of my life. Although I wasn’t much of a runner as a child, in my early 20s I realized it was a great way to de-stress after a long workday. As time passed I became interested in races and completed my first half marathon. From there, my competitive side kicked in and I began signing up for more races and focused on improving my performance. Fast forward to today and I have now completed over 30 races, and average roughly 1,500 miles of running per year.

Despite the improved performance, I will never be the type to win The Boston Marathon. Instead, I believe I have created a service that will help others in the running community…

RaceSavvy allows runners to search for races based on criteria most important to them, and then compare key information from multiple races side-by-side. This gives runners all of the information they need to make a decision in one spot, providing a simplified search process. By providing a simplified search experience RaceSavvy will contribute to the continued growth of the sport’s popularity, which will ultimately result in a healthier society.
