individual presentations from industry experts.

The focus for the trail race directors segment of the Conference is to build trail running connections in our communities, learn how to develop brand partnerships, and understand how to be creative in marketing technologies. The net effect is to enable race directors to manage events that result in successful, financially viable, and sustainable trail races for athletes of all abilities.

Rob Tranter, Race Roster senior business development representative says, “The Senior Leadership team at Race Roster has been impressed with the growth of the US Trail Running Conference over the last 4 years. Race Roster exists to make event 
organizers’ lives easier through event technology. We are excited to contribute more to this conference and the growing trail running scene in North America for years to come.”

delighted that Race Roster has increased their participation level for the 2017 US Trail Running Conference. We are confident that Race Roster’s passionate involvement, along with the other key sponsors of the Conference, will help us build on the dynamic foundation established in the first four years of the event, resulting in an even more 
successful Conference this October.”

The American Trail Running Association (ATRA) also announced in January that Race Roster had become the newest partner in their Event Standards Program, that assists trail race directors in meeting the 15 criteria necessary for staging a safe and 
well-organized event.
