We currently have someÂ fantasticÂ speakers with the proposed lineup of topics.Â We intend on keeping the format collaborative rather than simply speakers speaking, and having the day saturated with awesome information and discussion. Some of the topics we will cover are:
â€“ Social Media/Advertising and Marketing
â€“ Taking your race to the next level (with addition of group discussion on experiences and challenges in doing so)
â€“ Details of Event Organization, volunteer retention, participant engagement
â€“ Small Race case study
â€“ Necessary technical logistics (possible breakout between Trail and Road)
â€“ Emergency response, medical, safety measures.
â€“ Open forum (including each person sharingÂ one great thing they did with their event that provided better than expected results or one awful idea that wasted time/money or just went nowhere)
