As we discussed in our blog about ideas for preparing a plan in case your event is impacted by Coronavirus, we are starting to publish weekly updates on using year over year race data on the number of registrations.
In Week 1, there is good news, with race registrations up 3.0%.
We use data from the Top 250 races this year that also were on our platform last year from Saturday – Sunday February 23-29. A total of 127 races were in that top 250 report both this year and last year. The total number of registrations across those two years grew from 38,728 to 39,881 – a total of 1,153 additional registrations.
We will run this report weekly until the threat of impact is over.
