We think event planners would make great marathon runners or at least great marathon event managers. Here’s why, the event registration process is a lot like a long race from start to finish. Comparable to the pace of a marathon, the registration process begins quickly with an opening flurry of early bird discount activity and then transitions into a long steady stream of heavy registration until a final sprint to the end where walk-up registrants crowd the finish line.
Event planners also have to hurdle additional obstacles especially when managing a marathon event with over 30,000 participants! Logistically trying to keep track of runner bib numbers, tee-shirt sizes, sponsor tables, food and beverage choices and pre-race and post-marathon festivities is no easy jog. An event manager needs an event registration software that has the stamina to go the full distance – whether that is 26.2 or 13.1 miles.
Here is a listing of some upcoming major U.S. marathons:
- Los Angeles Marathon
- Pittsburgh Marathon
- Chicago Marathon
- New York Marathon
