Race Assistance

RACE PLANNING AND EQUIPMENT | RunAbout helps every race. We are happy to meet with race directors and help you plan, design, and execute your race successfully. We will donate free racing bibs and safety pins, as well as provide cones, flagging, coolers, and a finish line archway to help you maximize the money you are able to raise for your respective charity. Please refer to our Equipment Reservation Form to see what is available and get your race on the calendar. Remember to reserve equipment as early as possible as it is distributed on a first-come first-served basis. Official RunAbout Sports races take precedent, followed by the VT 3.2 for 32 and Virginia Tech Homecoming races. RunAbout will also send a event-trained employee to assist your race free of charge. On average, RunAbout assists with 34-40 races per year and has helped raise thousands for charities throughout the area.

TIMING | If you have less than 200 runners for a 5K, we recommend using the old-fashioned, cost-effective pull tag system to time your race. Our staff is happy to train your volunteers on how to use the pull tag system free of charge.
