Joan Tremberth asked Tony Myatt of Pine Tree Race Services ---- How to put on a successful virtual race.
See below for Tony's response:
When putting on virtual races especially if you are transforming a normal race to virtual keep everything as close to normal as possible. Ask people to do the regular course and give out regular prizes for overall and age group along with amenities. People will remember that you kept it close to normal and spread the word throughout the future so you get more people when regular races return.
Upcoming Maine Races:
