What would be great would be a place where you could look up all the events of a particular participation sport, say Running maybe, in a particular area, like the state you live in, in a certain time frame, say the next 3 months or the next two weeks. You know, like there used to be at active.com
Old, simple, active.com = useful
New, bloated, active.com = useless
If it weren't for the fact that so many events are still using Active for registration, I would never come here. Usually when I do come here, it's using a link from the events web site. It's nearly impossible to navigate once you get here if you don't have a link to the exact page you want.
Eventually someone will create something simple and useful that people will use instead of this site.
