AR Race Director Summit
1-Day Summit: 13, January 2018
The AR summit provides a forum for race directors to collaborate, share ideas, discuss best practices, and provide networking opportunities within the adventure race community.
It is recommended that participants have directed an adventure race with the past 24 months.
Two options are available to attend the summit: Onsite or virtually. Onsite registrations are limited to 15 people. Virtual capacity is limited to 20 registrations. Onsite participants get to interact more intimately with the group, have a two-way dialogue, and are treated to breakfast and lunch. Virtual participants can view and listen to sessions and can interact via posting questions and comments for feedback. Audio will be one way for virtual participants.
520A East 6th Street
Front Royal, VA 22630
Instructions will be sent prior to the summit on how to connect. You will need a laptop and/or a phone line.
If enough race directors are looking for lodging, we will work on a group rate at one of the local hotels.
Breakfast and lunch will be served. An informal dinner will be held at one of the local restaurants.
Front Royal is located near the intersection of I-81 and I-66 about 60 miles west of Washington DC. The nearest airport is Washington Dulles.
