The Run Up is a cyclocross based website. Cyclocross is a discipline of cycling where riders race laps on a short course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount. The Run Up has taken various forms over the past few years, but the most recent rendition is a Fantasy Cycling and Rankings website. It is a WordPress site powered by a custom theme and various custom plugins. The fantasy side of the website is a combination of several custom plugins that I created. The rankings system is a plugin that parses results from another website, imports them and scores them.

Version 2.0 of the site is due out in the summer of 2016 and will feature a leaner design and more social media interaction.
