Road Race Management is a non-regulated industry. There are no academic degrees offered to signify an individual as a “race director.” These individuals are often present and former runners, coaches, and fans who, at best, took their interest and developed a business. While “individuals” per se, can’t go out and create another professional sports enterprise like the NBA, MLB, NFL or NHL they can, through our support, learn how to develop their business venture, directing races and producing special events in their communities.
Race Director University will become a national leader educating and certifying race directors in the running industry.
The mission of Race Director University is to increase professionalism in the road race management industry by certifying race directors after taking them through a formal instructional learning environment with established academic strategies, practical applications, experiential process, continuing education criteria and e-learning.
The goal of Race Director University is to elevate the running industry’s core of race directors, newly hired race directors and prospective race directors from local, regional, state and national clubs, parks, running clubs and event and race management services who will enroll in classroom and online race management instruction.
"Talent is everywhere; it only needs an opportunity." This manifesto is borrowed from Kathyrn Switzer, a groundbreaking marathon runner who registered for the Boston Marathon by signing her name as K.V. Switzer because women were prohibited from running, ran and completed the Boston Marathon the first female to do so in 1976.
This statement resonates with the idea that anyone who believes in the American Dream, despite these challenging economic conditions, anyone can succeed through education, a commitment to hard work and tenacity.
Since 2016 we have become an expert witness for a law firm and personal injury attorneys seeking a remedy for their clients. Producing a sporting event and special event where participants in running, walking and marching in parks and the streets required a degree of knowledge about communications, risk management, legal liability, safety, and security.
All too often there are areas in on these courses that may potentially cause
harm. We will help litigants on both sides; however, the plaintiffs' cases are almost always defensible because the participant has limitations when exposed to some threat or risk.
