Annual Race Director’s Seminar

February 2017 marked the 11th Annual Race Time Race Director’s Seminar. This is the most comprehensive, hands-on workshop a race director can attend in the Chicagoland area. Participants were offered the opportunity to interact with race directors with up to 20 years of experience and were engaged by key speakers in the racing industry to learn about what works (as well as what does not!) in planning a successful event.

2017 Seminar topics included:

  • How to put on a successful event…and what makes it successful
  • Putting your registration online
  • Marketing your event: latest innovative ideas from Facebook to websites
  • Are your registration fees competitive?
  • Keeping everything organized: From volunteers to water stations
  • Working with your local city officials & police
  • USATF Certification vs. CARA Certification: Understanding the difference
  • Getting AND KEEPING event participants
  • How to get sponsors and have them invest in your event
  • Event Budget: How to create and work within your budget
  • New Session: Race Simulation (Afternoon Session)
  • So you didn’t get a chance to attend the 2017 Seminar? No problem! We have already begun planning the 2018 Seminar! If you don’t want to risk missing this incredible opportunity in 2018, simply sign up for our Annual Race Director’s Update List today!
