Now that we are in 2022, we’d like to take a minute to reflect on how ACTIVEWorks Endurance has changed over the course of 2021 and what we’ve been able to create and bring to you. With new releases, product enhancements and more, our race registration technology continues to help you elevate the participant experience so that your events stand out from the crowd, achieve more with our current resources, and create new revenue generating opportunities for your organization.
Here are some of the highlights of 2021:
Now supported for all race types. This feature is used to download results for your races, amend or add to these results and then re-upload them to ACTIVE Results and have these sync back into your ACTIVEWorks Endurance account connected to your participants for further analysis.

Enhanced Registration Workflow
We have simplified the participant selection with the Enhanced Registration Workflow. During registration to avoid confusion for registrants and to reduce athlete services enquiries, your customers can now more easily select whether they are registering for themselves, on behalf of another adult or on behalf of a minor.

Automatically cancel refunded registration with confirmed chargebacks. To ensure that your registrants cannot attend an event when they have issued and won a chargeback claim with their bank, their registration status in ACTIVEWorks is now automatically changed to cancelled. The registration in the participant’s profile is also flagged so that your athlete services team can easily see who issued the chargeback when they call or email in.

You can now block refunds of orders with chargebacks in flight. To protect you from double refunding orders and registrations where the cardholder has requested a chargeback, you are now blocked from refunding orders until the chargeback status has been confirmed by the issuers bank.

Hybrid Endurance Event Support
Previously, you could only create either a physical or virtual Endurance event. Now you can create a hybrid Endurance event offering both physical and virtual categories on the same registration form, which allows your participants to decide whether to hit the pavement with a crowd or run at their own leisure, or swap from physical to virtual and vice versa later, depending on your transfer configuration.
To create a hybrid or physical Endurance event, follow these steps.
On your athletes’ Results pages, for hybrid Endurance events, your athletes can now:
- View the results of an in-person or virtual event by clicking the Live race or Virtual race tab.
- Submit a result for a Virtual race by clicking the Virtual race tab and then entering the Registration ID.
The price of the transferred in items and custom fee amount is now editable when processing order transferal. In the administrator order transfer workflow, you or your team members can now adjust the new product’s price and custom fee.

We have also made it easier to view all transfer in and transfer out items, improving visibility and efficiencies of your admin teams.

The Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database module enables you to sort your customers into customized segments (groups) according to personal and event information, their purchase history, their email opening rates, their referral history and many other data points. Easily craft customized emails to send to these custom groups for improved conversions. You can now also export these custom segments (groups) for ease of use outside of the inclusive email tool.
