A Word From Our Customers

"The superior level of organization, event management and professionalism of Race Day Events is reflected in the wonderful job they do with MFI's events: the Madison Marathon and Half, Twilight 10/5k and Taste of Madison. They are "hands on", extremely knowledgeable and always look to improve the events. RDE's staff, both full and part-time are smart, hard working and make every event look its best!"

Rita Kelliher

Former President

Madison Festivals, Inc.

"Race Day Events has a reputation for being one of the best event management businesses in the country. In working with them on events in the past, it was an easy decision to bring them in to help with the first Salisbury Marathon/Half-Marathon/5k event in late April. RDE has been there, every step of the way, to help plan the logistics of the event and we look forward to their professional execution of our events. TCR Event Management and Race Day Events are working together to make sure that this race will be a memorable experience for all involved."

Jason Chance

Owner

TCR Event Management

“Race Day Events has been tantamount to the success of this event for our non-profit organization! With confidence, we are able to hand over the myriad details related to producing the event, including road and village permits, merchandising, food and snack procurement, the website and other social media. We are particularly pleased to be working with Race Day for three years now. Their expertise, flexibility, and diligence in planning and supporting the Horribly Hilly Hundreds is outstanding!”

"As an event organizer, I can rent quality fencing from many different vendors. What sets Race Day Events apart is their first class service that comes along with the fence. From set up to tear down and everything else in between, Race Day’s experience staff manages the whole process so I can focus on other aspects of the event."

We partner with Race Day Events as our logistics company to help run and execute Bike MS: TOYOTA Best Dam Bike Tour. Each year, Race Day goes above and beyond to ensure our event is a success. From checking in with us throughout the weekend to make sure we’re all on the same page about event specific details, to staying up as late as needed to get the job done, Race Day is a team we are glad to work with every year. Every employee on the Race Day team cares about the job they are doing, and they never act like a detail is too small or to unimportant to pay attention to. They are a team that works well together, is incredibly efficient, and can make an event run extremely smoothly from start to finish. For any sort of logistics intensive events, Race Day is a great team to have supporting you every step of the way.

It has been a pleasure working with Race Day events. We switched to them in 2019 in seeking a more streamlined, efficient approach to timing and scoring that provides more solutions and smoother interactions with our runners. Timing and results are part of the overall experience, so it pays to have the right vendor in place because at the end of the day, they represent your team.

Race Day Events has quickly established themselves as a leading timing/event company. Their experience as a timer along with understanding the operations side of an event makes them a great partner with any event. On top of their experience, their attitudes on race weekend help bring calm to what can be a very stressful situation. From small events to large events, RDE is more than capable to help take event timing and scoring to a new level.

RDE has been timing Vision Event Management events in Wisconsin for the past 3 years. They have built a strong staff to be able to handle complex timing and scoring situations. Amanda has been our point person this past year and she is absolutely fantastic. She will go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. We just extended our agreement with RDE because we have so much confidence in them. We look forward to working with RDE for many years to come.
