Welcome to a brand new look for RunMichigan
by RunMichigan Staff, May. 15, 2017
Welcome to our new site design!
It's here! Well, we've been working very hard. We've logged a lot of miles and we've downed a lot of donuts -- little chocolate donuts! Ok, never mind on the donut part. (Old SNL from not too recent history reference. Google: John Belushi little chocolate donuts.)
However, we've definitely been plugging away and creating a whole new look for RunMichigan.com! We wanted to bring you a more colorful, more user and mobile friendly, exciting new site for the runners of Michigan.
Ever since we started RunMichigan over 20 years ago, we've been doing our best to cover the great runners of our state as best we can and provide you with the best race calendar we can.
We have been so lucky to be able to live in such a great state for running from the amazing scenery and running trails and roads to the one of the most competitive and successful elite running states in the country.
Our new look hopes to give you a better way to view all of the positive things the running community in Michigan has to offer. Since we have been around since 1996, we have a huge archived database of results, photos and much more available.
As we progress with the roll out of our new site, we will slowly provide more ways to access all of the great Michigan running history we have compiled over the years.
Here is a quick run down and overview of a few main areas of our new site:
The first thing you'll notice is a more colorful, photo-rich top graphical area. We wanted to highlight the work from all the great photographers who have helped us through the years, promote all the runners of Michigan at all levels and get you directly to the things you want to see!
- Our main menu items will hopefully get you more quickly to the most important items you want.
- The graphic "slider" block at the top of the home page will show you some of our most recent highlighted photo coverage, results or news.
- The middle two graphic blocks will take you directly to our Calendar and Photos.
- The right graphic block will be our "Spotlight" section to highlight a featured article, story or Michigan based writer or blogger!
As you move down the left side of our home page you will have quick access to our latest photos, videos and featured high school and college news.
On the right side of our home page you'll get quick access to all the latest results and headlines.
LATEST POSTS AND CONTENT LANDING PAGE
- Our main content landing page will give you easy and quick access to all of our latest Photos, Videos, Results, News and much more!
- Plus you can search by dates, months and many different categories of information we have posted. Use the main CATEGORY TABS at the top and SUB CATEGORY TABS to refine your search.
As we move forward, our soon to come ARCHIVE site will let you roam back in time all the way to 1996 and beyond for older results, photos and race coverage.
Of course one of our most popular and favorite parts of our site has always been our Race Calendar.
We have made our calendar even better, more colorful and easier to search! Use the tabs, quick search box or advanced search tools at the top of the page or just scroll through all the upcoming races.
Please make a point to visit all the Featured Races too! These paid, featured events help fund RunMichigan as do ALL of the advertising and sponsorships we receive. Thank you advertisers and Featured Races!
Please enjoy the new look to RunMichigan and we hope we can keep working hard to bring you even more improvements and great race coverage in the years to come.
