Race Accreditation

Race accreditation process provides a simple, effective method to ensure their safety and protection of runners, race promoters and municipalities. The accreditation process sets up a number of safety related criteria that a race has to meet and supports the accredited races with affordable insurance that covers the perils associated with a road race.
