Race Options & Best Practices

As of February and March 2020, Coronavirus is the headline of every news story. Let’s hope that the spreading stops soon and that illnesses and death are minimized. As race and event directors, our customers should have an emergency plan for this.

Emergency Plan Options 

  • Change the date to later this year
  • Cancel this year’s event
  • Hold a Virtual Event


But, then what? If you are a race director that has had to make the hard decision to postpone, cancel, or switch to a virtual event (or maybe the decision was made for you) we understand that the next steps are challenging and confusing.

  • How do you communicate this to your customers?
  • What options can you give your customers?
  • What Participant Management options can you enable to make this process easier?
