Hi. I am involved in trying to re-invigorate the Gorgie Dalry Gala Day, which is on Saturday 10th June. One way we are trying to do this is by bringing back the fun run on the morning of the Gala Day, which used to have over 500 people running in it each year. At the moment, the intention is to keep it as a fun run (around 5k) to try and keep it as accessible for as many people as possible so it is not likely to interest club runners but as I have never organised a race before I am pretty clueless. Adrian Sprott from Run and Become has been helping a little.
The main thing I am looking for help with is how to get race numbers and how much this costs - does anyone know? We are currently in discussion with the council and police about the route but it has not been decided yet. We are intending to not use chips but just a big clock, which I believe Adrian is helping us with.
Also, I was wondering if someone could advise me on the best way to manage the results in terms of software etc.
If people have any more advice it would be greatly received.
Oh and I'm hoping to be back at the club in a month or 2. I've only ran twive since November due to injury.
