At FTR Race Management, we are more than just a race timing and management company. We see ourselves as a vital resource to the race directors and committee members that we work with. We want to share our knowledge with you to help you put on the best quality event. To that end, we have developed a race director section that provides you with exactly that. This section provides you with up-to-date information to guide you along the process highlighted by our race director packet.

Race Director Packet - The Race Director Reference Manual is a tool we at FTR Race Management created to offer guidance and a point of reference for race directors of all experience levels. The information included helps steer race directors from the initial decisions to host an event, thru race day as well as the weeks following. The reference manual offers benefits to even the most seasoned race director as it can serve to remind and offer peace of mind that everything has been seen to. So if you're looking for a few tips or a detailed step by step process this manual is another way Big River Race Management can help you.

Race Director Checklist- Everyone needs a master list of what they need to do for an event. Well in here is the main checklist from our race director packet. This is a brief insight of the information provided within the packet that is available to you. This checklist is intended to provide a good overview of what you would need for a moderately sized event. The individuality that each race takes on does mean that this list will vary from event to event.

Volunteer Descriptions- Clear volunteer job descriptions/instructions are very important to a successful event. Communicating with your volunteers prior to the event is the key to a well organized group on race day. Below is a sample instruction letter for volunteers. This example, as well as other race planning tips and advice, can be found in our Race Director Packet.

Videos & Documents - This section provides race directors valuable information for themselves or for race participants. Available are downloadable materials and videos to which you may share with your race participants in a prerace mailing or at packet pickup.

Partners - The partners area shows you who FTR aligns with daily for certain features of the event management  process. From
Porta Johns to race bibs to medals, we have a partner for each of them that can provide competitive pricing for you. Consider this a bonus to working with us.
