Race IT Partners with the Portland Marathon Half

Partnership includes unique domestic and international offerings

Portland, OR – December 1, 2014 – Race IT, the fastest growing online registration solutions platform in endurance sports, today announced its partnership with the Portland Marathon.  This partnership includes RaceIT powering registrations for the Portland Marathon Half as well as its sister-event the Dubrovnik International Half Marathon in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

In addition to powering the registrations for each event individually, a cross-border package has also been created, called the Portland to Dubrovnik Challenge.  The Challenge celebrates the partnership between the events, creates a cost savings by signing up for both, and includes specialized swag and event access for participants in the Portland to Dubrovnik Challenge.

“This is a great opportunity for us,” said Mike Milici, Vice President at Race IT. “We have 2 sister-events on opposites sides of the globe that we needed to help connect.  Each have different languages, currencies, and cultural needs of course, so developing a connection while still keeping their own individual identities was a unique undertaking.  So far, the reaction from the market has been overwhelmingly positive.

“An event in the Pacific Northwest that’s been around for decades and an inaugural event on the Adriatic Sea in Croatia have some differences”, said Les Smith, Portland Marathon Event Director, “but both events have the support and dedication of their host cities, and both are focused on drawing a combination of local, regional, and international participants to make the event unique.  RaceIT’s platform accommodated everything we needed domestically in the US and internationally as well.

Registration is now open for the Portland Marathon Half,  Dubrovnik International Half Marathon, and the Portland to Dubrovnik Challenge.  http://portlandmarathon.org/
