RaceWire Thanksgiving…. 40K Runners and Counting!

Published November 23, 2016

“It’s the most wonderful timmmeeeee of the year…..”  I’m sure that is what all timers are thinking about tonight, for tomorrow is easily the BIGGEST day in racing of the entire year! You guessed it, Turkey Trots galore, and we’ve got a few. Between all of the events we’re involved with tomorrow, we’re expecting FORTY THOUSAND runners. That’s more than the Boston Marathon! Hard to believe that that is just us… imagine how many people in the States are lacing up and heading out tomorrow.

Turkey Trots are a really interesting phenom, because everyone will participate in them. First-time runners, runner-haters, little children, you name it. Something about gorging yourself for hours afterward just feels right, amirite?

Anyway, not much more to say, but just wanted to do a little humble-bragging about how kick-ass our team is! We’re timing races in California, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Jersey just to name a few. RaceWire world takeover, coming to a town near you 😉

Now, it’s time to make our lists, check them twice, make sure our ultras and mats are working nice, because RaceWire is coming to town (to time your race). Want in on the fun for 2017? Get in touch!

Why customize your online registration page?

I think we’ve probably told you before, that your race is a brand, and with that comes a brand identity. With using RaceWire for your race management, you have multiple places to stamp your brand: bib numbers, tee shirts, and lastly, and perhaps most importantly, your registration page.. Click here to read more…

Bag Drops - Options for your Race

I can’t say we have this whole race thing down to a science, but we’ve been around the block once or twice, and we’ve learned a thing or two. There are so many things that come into play on race day, and where runners can store their things at bag drops is something you might not think of when you’re checking off your to-do list. Read more…

What to Do After Your Event

Months and months (hey, or longer) go into executing a good race, and it’s finally race morning, your event is over with a blink of the eye. It’s easy to get caught up in the festivities and forget that it ain’t over until it’s O-V-E-R. Read more…
