Activity API

Introduction

Directory: ACTIVE.com

For Use By: Third-party developers can use the API to build applications to distribute events and activities from the ACTIVE.com database.

The Activity APIs give developers easy access to ACTIVE.com's broad array of activity data. It is centered around the concept of "assets", where events, races, tournaments, facilities, classes, leagues are all considered assets. Each asset has a unique ID, and data about a given asset can be retrieved with this ID.

With the Activity Search API, developers can search for all half marathons coming up over the next few months in San Diego, California. Or they can get a list of tennis tournaments happening in New York over the summer. They can dive in to get detailed information about the Bay to Breakers, including the event director's race description, latitude and longitude for the starting point of the race, and fees. And after the Bay to Breakers happens, the APIs can be used to query user reviews of the race.

All of the APIs are read-only and return public data. As a result, no security measures (SSL, Oauth) are required. Race Registrations are done online on ACTIVE.com.
