The Sunflower Striders Running Club Timing Fee's:
Non Member - $1.00 per entrant
Member - $0.50 per entrant
Includes timing only, timing and scoring, or scoring only. The fee will be for the total number of participants registered at the time the race is to begin.
Pre-registered entrant data will need to be forwarded to Norma Weiser at least three days before the event for races to be timed and/or scored. Please contact Norma at 640-3102 or email@example.com.
Beginning in 2012, the Sunflower Striders recommend race directors volunteer at one or more local race(s) prior to your event each year. Doing so will help race directors further understand the importance of providing complete and accurate entrant data both before and on the day of the race as well as the functions of timing, finish line operation, and compiling results for an event on race day. Volunteers may include one or more individuals associated with an event in place of the race director/organizer. With over 30 local events on the calendar each year, there are ample opportunities to help other races be successful. Volunteering at the club’s Topeka to Auburn ½ marathon in January, which is the first race of the year, is also an option for fulfilling this request.
Race directors are encouraged to provide detailed information regarding their events to firstname.lastname@example.org to have their race posted on the Sunflower Striders’ race calendar.
