Have you ever wondered what it takes to put on a race or fun run?
Do you want to help raise money for a cause or give back to the running community?
Then the Oregon Road Runners Club (ORRC) has an event for you!
- How do you decide on a distance?
- Who do you need to contact to get permission to use city streets or park trails?
- How many porta-potties do you need?
All these questions are answered and more!
We will not only train you on how to organize your event, but there are additional benefits!
- If you volunteer to become a race director for an ORRC event, you receive free entry to all ORRC events one year after you volunteer as an RD. That’s right… from the 5K to the Ultras, it’s all free!

Deadline to Register: Thursday, September 30th; While the workshop is free to anyone who is interested… we need participants to register so we can send you the materials ahead of time, and know how many people to expect.
This free workshop includes resource materials on how to put on a race, including a timeline of when things need to be done, and detailed lists of what is needed to put on an event. Designed as a low-key, informational training session we want to help you decide if this is something you may want to try.
And after attending the workshop, you can watch the Portland Marathon on Sunday, October 3rd, and see how it all comes together! ☺
ORRC needs your help, and would greatly appreciate any time you can give to support the club, be it handing out water, or putting a race!
If you are interested in learning how to become a race director, or if you are interested in volunteering for any events in any capacity, or just have questions, please contact ORRC at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for all of your support, we look forward to seeing you out there on the roads in the near future!
