Race directors clock in an incredible amount of hours on race day trying to achieve everything right. Unfortunately, many race directors have simply typed personalities and struggle to delegate duties to their staff. What often drives the most excitement is those races that support an important charity and are close to the heart of a race director. A good example of this would be the Great British Runners’ Club.
Runners are part of an organization that works hard to raise money every year for many different causes. This includes supporting local schools through the ‘Miles for Schools’ program, which has raised thousands of pounds for many schools. Runners and sponsors often meet at a local park or the local gym, and the local community gets involved. It is an amazing experience and gives everyone involved a real insight into the people of this great country.
The race itself, in particular the 10k Race, is one of the most popular events, attracting more than twenty thousand people to the area each year. These people come from all over the country and some are lucky enough to live in the area and watch the race, but it is also possible to attend in person if you have never been there.
Runners and charities can have many benefits
Runners and charities can have many benefits. They often benefit from having the opportunity to raise funds for a worthy cause. This is especially important when children are involved in the running and fundraising process. It shows the local community that they are not forgotten and that people will do anything they can to support them.
When a person sees the amount of money that they have raised for the charity and the joy of being part of this amazing community, it often makes them think about their own lives and what they can do to contribute something worthwhile. Running the local marathon is a great way to raise money and to show other people that this is a worthwhile thing to do. If you are in a position to run, then why not consider raising money for the local charities that you are involved in.
Race directors play an important role in the running of a great event. They can either help to direct you, or they can leave you with all the responsibility. If you don’t know someone who runs race days for a local club, then you should contact them and ask if they could suggest a suitable person.
