For the first time this year we are proud to announce the ‘Improving Your Road Race’ runbritain Roadshow which will support the Expo.

The roadshow is designed to give Race Directors information, advice, tangible usable benefits and the opportunity to contribute to the shaping of road running in the UK

The areas we will cover at the road show will be:

Technical Support for Races – free mapping software - a demonstration of this resource will be given; and will be supported by a presentation on the other resources available to Race Directors to improve the staging of their races.

Media and Marketing Support for Races – Did you know that we can feature audio clips promoting your race and video clips showing it on our website? See what runbritain can do to promote your race through our website and social media.

Medical Guidelines - a presentation of the rationale behind the guidelines, what they mean for your race and the opportunity to ask questions of the Chair of the Medical Advisory Group that formulated them.

Online entries – This is the fastest growing and cheapest online entry service in the UK. Hear how it operates and how you can use it to boost entries to your race.

runbritain Race Handicap – Over 42,000 runners are signed up for their race handicap. Hear how this unique ranking system was devised, how it works and how it can benefit your race.

All of the presenters are members of the runbritain Technical Group which shapes strategy and policy for road and multi-terrain running in the UK. You will have the opportunity to ask questions on any of the above topics or any other area of road or MT running.
