RDU IN A NUTSHELL

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

  

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT


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.


VISION


Race Director University will become a national leader educating and certifying race directors in the running industry.


MISSION STATEMENT


​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.


GOAL


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.


PHILOSOPHY


"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.

ORBITER RACE TIMING SYSTEMS

ORBITER WAS FIRST TO INVENT AND PATENT SIDE ANTENNA TECHNOLOGY FOR RACE TIMING AND LAP COUNTING

 

Elite Race timers use Orbiter to gain accurate times and lap counts. 


Professionals and novices are able to time any human powered event. They use our Chip Timing and Lap Counting system for Events, Schools, Races and Fitness testing. Professional easy chip timing & lap counting. 


This is because our software is a tool that times any human powered event. Our detector hardware is like a robot. It is smart and makes autonomous decisions. This means your race is safe as a live internet connection is not necessary.


All Side Antennas are not the same. Orbiter is the only company with phased detect antennas. 


These produce more accurate “on the finish line” times. They also eliminate the need for many antennas. Other companies use multiple antennas. They multiplex radio power between them

one at a time. Multiplexing produces a fuzzy finish time and slows tag detection making the 

system less reliable. 


Orbiter RFID readers solve the microprocessor heat problem common with very high performance electronics. This allows the world’s fastest read rates of 1,250 tags per second. Most importantly, 

we made the heavy plastic pelican time detector other timers use obsolete. This makes our system highly portable and light weight. 


Plus, There are no antenna cables to assemble and disassemble. The copper inside is delicate and frays. They become out of tune and must be replaced. Orbiter system is rugged. We have systems are still in use after 10 years even when dropped often. This provides economy and value. There are no stands, separate boxes, or other to stack lift and carry as with other systems.
