I don't know how I missed this question earlier. I was getting caught up on emails and I had this one flagged to respond. Sorry!
I would suggest connecting with council and getting them on board. You also should find someone that has done races in the area to guide you. You would be surprised at how willing race people are to help each other.
Another suggestion is to get some sponsors, not only for funding, but also for there abilities. We were extremely lucky to connect with a new marketing / website firm that was looking to get their name out there to donate their time (maybe the local college has a program and you can get a new graduate to assist) and our local National Guard group also got very involved (they want to recruit more women, so it was a win-win) and they were really able to help with the obstacles. Think outside the box when thinking about what you need and who can help.
