The NVRC puts on several races a year. But there are dozens of races in the Centre Region every year put on by organizations or individuals, usually for some charitable cause. The NVRC won't put your race on for you, but we can help in several ways: advice, free advertisement (on our Calendar), and race timing. If you're thinking of putting on a race, the information below will get you started.
The first three pages below are essential to novice race directors:
- A Race Director's Primer: How To Direct A Race In The State College Area.
- Special information for Directors of on-campus races.
- Race timing: You'll want to do this right.
- Race Directors' quick checklist (reprinted from Cool Running). Full of general tips for directing a successful race.
Also, you can join the Yahoo! Discussion Group NVRC, to get and/or spread the early buzz on upcoming races. You don't need to be a Nittany Valley Running Club member to join the Discussion Group.
