Active at Altitude, organizers of the US Trail Running Conference, announces a webinar series geared to trail race directors that will feature monthly presentations on key subject areas that are critical for race directors to manage successful, viable, and sustainable events. The first of nine webinars will be held January 21, 2021, with the final installment to present in September.
The Conference has developed a reputation for providing high-quality content, networking and actionable practices to help race directors grow and develop successful trail races. Capitalizing on this outstanding reputation, the webinar series will cover safe racing in the COVID era, diversity, equity and inclusion, growing a trail running community, and empowering tribe of climate action warriors. Each webinar is presented by industry leaders in their respective fields, and will offer information that can boost a race director’s knowledge and afford insight into innovative practices to implement at their events.
Each participant will receive a toolkit document after every webinar that will detail key actionable items, while there will be an opportunity to follow up on deliverables through a forum on social media channels, and in-person or remotely at the 2021 US Trail Running Conference to be held October 27-30, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The webinar series is held in partnership with the American Trail Running Association and Trail Runner Magazine.
