Richmond, VA – July 10, 2014 – Race IT, the fastest growing online registration solutions platform in endurance sports, today announced a new partnership with the Event Director’s College Series (EDC) operated by the Portland Marathon. Race IT will be the Platinum Sponsor of both the EDC West (Portland, OR) and the EDC East (Charleston, SC). EDC West is held in October each year in conjunction with the Portland Marathon, and EDC East is held each April in conjunction with the Cooper River Bridge Run.

“We jumped at the chance to work with the EDC,” said Mike Milici, Vice President at Race IT. “It’s a very unique conference that combines industry insight and best practices for Race Directors.  Our platform supports events of all sizes, and the Event Director’s College is designed to benefit any size event as well so it’s a great fit. We’ve attended in the past and it is important to us to get much more involved.”

The Race IT technology platform delivers an enhanced suite of customized registration capabilities, volunteer management, performance marketing tools, web hosting and design as well as state of the art race results technology for race directors and their participants. To maintain peak performance, Race IT has built a hybrid cloud hosting infrastructure that allows it to easily scale capacity to handle any amount of volume with ease.

“The 24th Edition of the Portland Marathon Event Director College is very excited to have Race IT join as a Platinum level sponsor in 2014. We believe our participants will benefit greatly by learning about their superior platform of registration. As exhibitors and panelists, the team from Race IT will be a welcome addition to our growing field of industry experts providing quality products and services,” said Les Smith, Portland Marathon Event Director. “And that’s not to mention the very high level of customer service we experience.” 

Registration is still open for a limited time for the EDC West 2014 event this October, and also Charleston in April 2015.  For more information, please visit http://portlandmarathon.org/event-directors-college/portland-or/. For more information about Race IT, visit RaceIT.com.
