On each page of the RRCA website, there are links to Resources for: Coaches
, and Runners
. We are happy to announce a new page has been added to the Resources for Event Directors section that outlines Tips for Working with Out-of-Town Event Promoters.
Running continues to boom, and we are very pleased with the growth in our sport. To help ensure and maintain our long tradition of integrity within our membership, the RRCA is happy to provide the following tips when working with out-of-town event promoters.
As with any business venture, always work with an out-of-town promoter with an eye for "�buyer beware' caution. With that said, there are many great event management companies that promote and own races around the country, and they depend on the local running community to make their events a success. As you work with these groups, make sure your club benefits from the effort and isn"�t taken advantage of, because you are the expert and local resource.
If your club works with out-of-town promoters, make sure both parties outline, IN WRITING, in advance, the expectations, deliverables, payments, and more for the event. Request a nonrefundable retainer fee for services you will provide with a final payment to follow after the conclusion of the event. A reputable out-of-town promoter should be willing to agree to this, because it is their goal, after all, to ensure their race is a success in your community.
