Showcasing ExpressionEngine websites from all over the web
Southern Arizona Roadrunners
SAR is actually a pretty stripped-down EE implementation, showing off that a vanilla install has tremendous power. Prior to this, SAR served tens of thousands of runners with static HTML pages that required their volunteer webmaster to manually update the site. Needless to say, these poor souls had years taken off their lives when it came to posting race results in a manner satisfactory to the demanding race participants.
Enter EE. Extensive custom fields for the Races and Results weblogs and assigning authorship to the individual race directors (all a member of the same user group, but unable to edit others’ entries) has resulted in a site that seamlessly turns over the race calendar, results and race-related news at the hands of many un-technical race directors and race timers.
The site has won accolades from the Road Runner’s Club of America, and afforded its volunteer webmaster much more time to run.
