Hey all you busy event directors out there—we’ve got some good news: Running USA is presenting 1-Day Race Director Workshops in various cities throughout the country. These are incredibly valuable and provide real-world advice for people who are passionate about putting on a great race, but might not be able to get away for the annual conference.
The first workshop will be held at the end of this month on October 26th, 2012 in Hamilton, NJ. This event will be packed with the industry’s best info and speakers, all geared at ways you can take your event to the next level!
Topics will include:
- Sponsorship 101
- Race Budgeting
- Endurance Event Marketing
- Volunteer Recruitment and Training
- Course Planning, Permitting and Essential Operations
- And much more….
Plus, several industry product vendors will be on hand to do demos and answer questions.
If you’re on the fence, listen to something we heard from an attendee at the San Diego event:
“My favorite thing about the San Diego Race Director Workshop was the small group setting. I was able to ask lots of questions and established solid networking contacts. A few of us from that workshop have become great friends and call upon each other regularly for advice and cross promotional ideas.”
