This week another association jumped on board the blogging train. This organization was started in 2005 by the former Executive Director of the Chicago Area Runners Association, David Patt. The Association of Running Event Directors  aims to better educate the numerous people who take on the challenge of organizing and operating running events. They conduct training
sessions and offer individual consultation on race planning,
marketing, sponsorship, volunteer recruitment, course management, and
event administration. A blog has been added to their suite of offerings for member education and participation.
