The Internet - a "winner" for the real- BERLIN-MARATHON and SCC-RUNNING
Great increase for the year 2002
2003-01-27The year 2002 was not only a success from an athletic standpoint, but also from a digital one for the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON and SCC-RUNNING.
At www.berlin-marathon.com, the website offers a large variety of information about our own running events in Berlin, but numerous reports from the world of running and inline skating, as well.
In 2002, 1,569,116 people visited 10,669,988 pages at www.berlin-marathon.com. Like every year, at the end of September, at the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON, the largest interest was demonstrated with almost 2 million page views.
Parallel to www.berlin-marathon.com, for the past one and a half years an internet forum has been offered at forum.berlin-marathon.com, which has since become a regular address for the SCC-RUNNING participants. In 2002, there were 2,688,049 pages produced by 249,205 visitors. Over 3,000 registered users have now written over 47,000 articles - an impressive number!
The creative webmaster of the internet site www.berlin-marathon-com is Jörg Scheider. "We are constantly working on the technology and content of the largest website of a running organisation in Germany - and the large success in the page view shows us that we are doing good work", says Scheider.
For the complete internet presence of SCC-RUNNING there were a total of 13,358,037 page views by 1,818,321 visitors. Compared to 2001, that means an increase of 85% in page views and an 80% increase in site visitors.
The webserver of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON is provided by the official internet partner of SCC-RUNNING, the COMLINE AG. In 2002, nearly 600 GB of data were transported over the internet lines of the COMLINE AG. 1,200 press releases, articles and special news are available on the online news databank of SCC-RUNNING, and 3,100 photos can be viewed on the online photo album.
The attractive scope of the internet presence is demonstrated in the links to the websites of over 200 marathons throughout the world, to 180 other races, such as cross country, mountain, womens, half marathon, and ultra races, to athletic associations, articles on running magazines, travel agencies, as well as to pages on sport medicine.
The direct online race registration by the participants is for the organisers of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON and numerous other races organised by SCC-RUNNING the most important improvement in the organisational structure.
