Race Director Clinics

Free Race Director Clinics from CARA

Please join the Chicago Area Runners Association for one of our free Race Director Clinics. These clinics are aimed at both new and experienced race directors who are looking to increase their skills, better understand the CARA Best Practices Guidelines as well as network with fellow event, running club and charity organization leaders.

Each clinic date will follow the same agenda, including a presentation of the CARA Best Practices Guidelines along with a special topic, making each clinic a new opportunity for learning. These clinics are informal and ample time will be set aside at each clinic for active dialog as we look forward to learning from you as well as we share experiences!
