A few months ago we launched our Ultra168 Supporters Club (click for more info), which has seen hundreds of you sign up to take advantage of savings across races and brands in both Australia and New Zealand. For that, I’m hugely thankful and grateful for your support.
When launched, we had only 8 races and 2 brands on board. We’ve now grown the base to:
- 30 races
- Across 18 different events
- From 12 different organisers
- As well as 6 gear providers / independent stores.
Given the expansion, I thought it would be a good opportunity to run through exactly who we have on board again and remind readers of who’s taking part and what you could save. If you’re still thinking about signing up, you race in Australia and New Zealand, then hopefully this might persuade you!
If you were to race all of the events on our list (OK I know you won’t!), but you could save yourself over $700 in race entry fees alone. Plus, if you’re like me and blow around $1,000 a year on running gear, then you could save yourself another $200-300 depending on who you buy your gear from. Most members are likely to save two to three times the value of their membership across the year.
Not only that, but Ultra168 Supporters get exclusive access to gear testing from our partners too. A few of them have already scored some gear valued at hundreds of dollars, which in some cases has seen their membership paid for five or six times over.
Plus, we also have access to some free races entries exclusively for supporters too – a certain Six Foot Track race entry will be up for grabs for a Supporter a little later in the year. Given this race sells out in about 10 minutes, I think this is a pretty cool benefit of being a supporter.
We have three levels of membership:
- ‘All In’ – For people who want to save on races and gear ($39.99)
- ‘Races’ – For those that want to save purely on races ($29.99)
- ‘Gear’ – For those that only want to save on gear ($29.99)
