WordPress Athletics

WP Athletics is a powerful plugin for your running club aiming to allow your runners to log and track their results, track their PB’s and view statistics and charts. The plugin is currently live on my running club website at, check it out as a working example of the plugin.

For more information, download and support, visit the plugin site hosted on WordPress. If you like the plugin and would like to donate to its development, please use the donate link below.

Some of the major features for your registered users are:

  • Enter race results and create new events if they do not yet exist
  • View their race history and personal bests
  • Search for other athletes and events using the power search tool
  • View individual or club-wide statistics including visual charts
  • View overall club records
  • View recent results

On top of this, there are a selection of administrator tools making your job easier to manage and control the data

  • Easily manage the event categories, age categories, results and events
  • Event merger (say a user has created an event that already exists while logging a new result, you can easily merge the two events using this tool)
  • Manually enter a list of results for a race (and easily add new athletes to the system if they are not registered)
  • Embed an interactive table of results into a new post using a simple shortcode, e.g. [wpa-event id=505]
  • Generate a customised printable rankings list for your dressing room (e.g top 5k female runners in 2012)
  • View a log of plugin activity
  • All the pages (manage results, recent result and records) are automatically generated and ready to use out of the box
  • A recent results widget to display the last 5 (customisable) results based on event date
  • Choose a variety of UI themes to suit your website style
