5 reasons 2016 was a great year at RaceDirector

1. RaceDirector Blog publishes 64 articles
Last year we got serious about delivering useful tips and information about how to do your job better and make your events more successful. Each week, we posted in-depth articles about all aspects of race directing. Browse the archives anytime and stay tuned for more relevant information every week.

2. Free race registration for no-cost events
That is right. Free. No strings attached. No catches. You will see as you get through this list that we are all about connecting running with great causes in our community. One good turn deserves another.

3. QR Code Participant Check-In
In August we added the capability to simply scan QR codes presented by participants on their smartphones or printed out. For every 500 runners, an event has, you can eliminate over 4 hours of time spent waiting in lines to check in.

4. Participant Registration fees are still just $1.00!
From the beginning, we have felt that other platforms method of charging a percentage of your registration was entirely unfair. We still stand by this principle, and whether you charge $20 or $200, our fee is still just $1.00.

5. Downtown Willoughby 5k donations to Make-A-Wish approach $100k
The founder of RaceDirector, Craig Rowe, is a pretty humble guy and does not like to toot his own horn. He is also the race director for this race in the suburbs of Cleveland, OH. In its 4th year, the event has grown to over 2,000 participants and more importantly was able to once again present one of those oversized checks to Make-A-Wish of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. This event is a great example of how the robust functionality of the RaceDirector platform can help you produce a quality community event and give back to a great cause at the same time.

Here at RaceDirector we are race directors just like you. Thanks to your continual feedback, we remain hard at work to make this platform powerful, yet intuitive and easy to use. We are always just a click or a call away from giving you the additional support you need to take your event to new heights. Stay tuned for new features and improvements throughout 2017.
