Group Will Help Enhance the Runner Experience, Growth and Promotion to Events in Danville, Indiana and Whitefish, Montana
CARMEL, Ind. (May 16, 2018) – CRRG Events, an event management and production company located in Carmel, Indiana, has been selected to take over the management of two signature races for their respective communities. Beginning in 2018, CRRG Events will manage all aspects of marketing, promotion and production of the Fair on the Square Half Marathon and 5K (formerly the Hendricks County Half Marathon), located in Danville, Indiana and the Two Bear Marathon and Half Marathon, located in Whitefish, Montana.
With a lineup of already successful running events, including the Carmel Marathon Weekend, now one of the top 100 marathons in the U.S., and the Indy Women’s Half Marathon and 5K, the largest women’s half marathon in Indiana and 7th largest women’s-only half marathon in the U.S., CRRG Events is poised to bring a heightened level of attention and success to two established races.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with and expand these two great running events,” said Todd Oliver, president of CRRG Events. “We look forward to demonstrating the positive economic benefit that running events can have on a local community and expanding our presence in event management both on a state and national scale.”
Now in its seventh year, the Fair on the Square Half Marathon and 5K takes place on September 8, 2018 and is part of the popular Fair on the Square, a two-day festival in Danville that includes artists, food vendors and entertainment. New for 2018, all finishers will be treated to fair food (slushes, kettle corn and more) at the finish line, the Quaff On Beer Garden and most importantly, a free ferris wheel ride positioned at the finish line!
“Through the support of Hendricks Regional Health, we are already seeing a spike in interest in the Fair on the Square races,” said Oliver. “Making it fun just enhances the positive benefits that running events can have on a community.”
The Two Bear Marathon and Half Marathon, held on Sunday, September 16, is a race that runs along the edges of the beautiful Glacier National Park. The race course offers participants amazing mountain and lake views as runners leave from the town center of Whitefish and explore a new all-road course along the edges of one of the country’s most magnificent landmarks. Organizers of the Two Bear Marathon have enlisted CRRG to expand the race and help bring national visibility to this unique running event.
“The Two Bear Marathon had to be postponed in 2017 due to the California wild fires so we are focusing on getting it back on runners’ radars,” said Oliver. “2018 will showcase a new faster course using streets instead of trails. Now, not only will the event be a destination race, it is a Boston Qualifier as well!”
“We have a great team at CRRG that has proven it can produce top-tier races that positively benefit local communities,” said Oliver. “We welcome the challenge of taking our established best practices and applying them to the Fair on the Square and Two Bear races. Both events highlight their regional landscape and community benefits. Runners and walkers will be glad they made the trip!”
