  •    Timing:
  •      Cost:
    • $1,000 minimum ($750 = equipment fee + $3 per runner)
      • ex: a race of 83 would pay $1,000; a race of 1,000 would pay $3,750
    • * Race is also responsible for the replacement cost of any lost or broken equipment
  •  

  •      Race Numbers:
    • Use our standard bib numbers and pay only for the number of bibs/chips actually used
    • Order customized bibs and pay ~20 cents more per runner depending on the type/amount of bibs ordered
      • *Race is financially responsible for any unused bibs and must order projected numbers at least 20 days in advance
    • The race numbers must be at least 5″ tall to accommodate the timing tag
  •  

  • Contracts:
    • We must receive a signed contract before we can reserve your race date
      • We must also receive the initial deposit before we begin any work for your race
    • The sooner we know about your race, the better. However, if we happen to have extra equipment available, we can probably time a race for you with as little as 7 days notice.
      • * If you would like help planning a race, let’s get started a year in advance.

 

  •    Race Planning:
  • Who does the announcing?
    • We can announce something in a pinch, but you should plan on having someone dedicated to the task of engaging and informing the crowd.
  •  

  • Who takes the pictures?
    • It’s best to plan on two photographers: on dedicated to the finish line and one for capturing the event as a whole. Having a videographer to go along with the photos is always a nice touch.
  •  

  • Who sets up the course?
    • Please have a few volunteers specifically dedicated to setting up and packing up materials along the course. The earlier they start setting out cones and signs on race morning, the better.
  •  

  • Who sets up all of the equipment?
    • While we enjoy making our race equipment available, your crew will be responsible for it’s use. We will provide direction or manuals as needed.
  •  

  • Who manages the registration computers?
    • Make sure you have trained volunteers overseeing registration.
  •  

  • Can we do an early packet pick-up?
    • Yes! It will help cut down on the lines race morning as well.
  •  

  • How many volunteers will I need?
    • It’s good to plan on having about 50 volunteers for your average race, but we can help you think through all the details.
