5Kevents.org – Race Timing and Management
5Kevents.org was formed in 2013, after several years as a Plan Ahead Events Franchise. Our very 1st event was held in 2010 for the Racine Unified School District where we orchestrated a spirit run for local schools under the name RacineKids.org. Today we orchestrate events nationwide and our staff has over 40 years combined experience in the industry.
We provide training, guidance and counsel to organizations looking to use a 5K Run / Walk as a fundraiser and to entrepreneurs who want to start their own race timing business. We coach and assist Race Directors, Timing Companies, Event Planners and Non-profits refine their existing events so they are more profitable.
One of greatest assets are our themed and trademarked events that can be reproduced for local organizations to help raise awareness and income for the organizations they support.
There is more to directing a 5k race than appears on the surface. From securing routes and attracting sponsors for your event to marketing your event and protecting events in your area, you will learn it all with our online resources and consultants. Most importantly, you will learn how to make sure your race doesn’t lose money!
We are consultants, not a network or franchise. We do not charge royalties or maintain control over our clients; we are supported by our clients who find value in being a part of our system.
Race directing involves managing a number of different facets of the event as well as providing the best possible experience for the athletes. 5kevents.org on-line resources will help clients navigate issues such as course standards and set up; timing services and results; access to online registration tools, free web sites and buying power for supplies such as T-shirts, medals and ancillary items; We teach you how to work with your city and county for permitting and insurance requirements–and much, much more.
