You Tell Us...

WHO IS THE WORLD'S BEST RACE DIRECTOR?

Road Race Management and MarathonFoto will again honor the outstanding race director of the year. The 2017 award winner will be announced at the Road Race Management Race Directors' Meeting on November 9, 2017. Our goals are to recognize excellence (not perfection) and to make race directors a more appreciated, albeit weary, species before they become an extinct species.

Eligible: Any Race Director, Coordinator, Chief Executive or Chief Operating Officer of a race. You may nominate yourself. Previous winners are not eligible.

Criteria for Selection: Nominations must be received by October 1, 2017. Nominees will be judged on several factors, including overall ability, reputation of race, sponsor relations, creativity, and organizational ability. Please be as specific as possible in filling out the form. If you wish to submit additional materials (limit is 2), you may either list links to the materials in the form below, or you may email them as attachments to Jeff Darman at rdoy@rrm.com. (Please be sure to include the Name of the person you are nominating in the Subject line of the email after the words "Race Director of the Year Supplement.")

Fee: A $15.00 processing fee is required for each nomination.

Did You Submit a Nomination Last Year?
