Yes @Jacob_Tinsfeldt_BCC @Mark_Crane_TOG_G_63y a lot has happened since my last post.
You can see from my previous post, on applicant Zwift asked us to provide evidence of filling the meetups to capacity. I did this over 3 weeks. I also provided evidence of waiting lists via screenshots and a brief narrative of our need for an event.
Emails continued back and forth and three trial events were organised. The resulting 3 race events attracted 400 mainly local riders in each, this being the usp of our event. This grew to almost 500 for the last of the 3 events. By this stage, Zwift had already agreed to give us a regular recurring event and provided details of how to update this.
Taking the bull by the horns we arranged an 8 week league which lead to another area of difficulty, Zwiftpower. There’s very little documentation, although not rocket science.
Not much point in the old club event organisers commenting as they mostly started in a different Zwift era. Perhaps its a bit condescending to say, don’t bother trying if you aren’t at capacity on meetups but you’re more likely to be taken seriously.
Good luck, keep at it. It’s certainly worth the effort. In our case, we have 40 local clubs and in excess of 500 riders supporting us and a good team of admins.
Zwift event folks have been great with us, so no complaints there. We also got turned down for inclusion in the club trial…
Cant post url’s but you can find our Events in Zwiftpower under TUZ on at Wed evening @ 19:00 gmt and league is TUZ Winter Chase Race League.
