Safe and Accurate Course Designs and Certification
Participant safety and course accuracy are our top priorities in all road race course designs. Our experience as race directors and runners can help you create an optimal course that will be manageable for your staff but also appealing to your participants. We've also worked with many different cities and understand the best practices to use for course design to give you the best shot of getting your event permit approved.
USATF Course Certification
This service available in Minnesota only. A properly measured course is an important part of a quality race. Runners will be guaranteed an accurate distance by having a race certified to USA Track & Field standards.
Our USATF certification includes course measurement, certification filings and high quality maps able to be printed in large format.
What is course certification and why should I have it done for my race? The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances.
For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.
Map Creation for new or existing courses
Don't settle for hand drawn course maps that are hard to read and too complicated for participants to comprehend. We can create or update any existing course maps. Final files will be provided in JPG, EPS and PDF formats for all of your potential marketing needs, online and print.
