- Bay to Breakers – Discounted registration for one of the world’s largest and most iconic footraces, the 100-year old San Francisco Bay to Breakers 12k

In addition to launching in the San Francisco Bay area, Active.com expects to roll out Schwaggle in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago in Q1 2011, with 20 markets to be launched by the end of the year.
"Active.com Schwaggle is extremely focused on quality and relevant deals that match the active lifestyle of our subscribers," said Brian Enge, vice president, strategic projects of Active Network. "And unlike others on the market, Active.com already has tens of thousands of consumers in the San Francisco Bay area alone interested in getting these types of deals."
In addition to offering deals on sports and fitness products and services, Active.com Schwaggle will focus on a wide range of discounted registration on endurance events and discounted golf tee times. Active Network provides online registration for thousands of events, and registration numbers show that on average less than 10 percent of endurance events sell out. Active.com Schwaggle will be another valuable service to help event organizers increase participation in their races. In the future, the program expects to expand to community events, camps and more.
"Bay to Breakers has been partners with Active Network for over a decade and we are excited to be the first Active.com Schwaggle offering," said Angela Fang, general manager of Bay to Breakers. "We are excited to offer discounted registration for a select number of participants in celebration of the 100th running of the Bay to Breakers footrace."
