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.
I am on the planning committee for this race and I am so excited that our website is finally launching today!!!! Please check out this 'flyer' and then click on the dog tag to check out the whole website.
Not only is it going to be an amazing fun event, but 100% of the registration fee come back to our Girl Scout council!
The ladies planning the course are super fun and creative. I can't wait!!!! Who is going to join me?
