Event Services

Fit & Able staged it's first event in 1997 - Plunge Pedal Plod. It began as a small youth triathlon but soon grew to include adults too and be one of the largest triathlons in the Triangle at the time. Now, over 20 years later we stage dozens of events - both big and small - around Cary and the Triangle.

Our main event focuses include:

  • Running: road races, trail races, lap races and cross country meets
  • Multisport: triathlons, aquathlons, and duathlons
  • Track & Field: both track and field events
  • Expos & Festivals: health fairs, community festivals, and more

In 2014 we began offering our event organization expertise to other organizations looking to stage high-quality races, meets, and festivals. If you are a race director or have an organization wanting to stage a race, look no further!

We will take the burden of organizing, managing, and staging your event so that you can focus on the important part - sponsor and donor fundraising! - and the event goes off without a hitch.

Race Management

Staging a 5K is not as easy as it looks. Even the smallest community race requires a great deal of experience to stage properly. The difference between a good 5K and a great 5K is a race experience that will ensure the race grows and becomes a very effective fundraiser.

We can help you take your race from good to great.

Here are just a few of the things we can provide:

  • Setting up online registration
  • Promoting the event to the race community
  • Designing the course
  • Permitting and sanctioning the event
  • Emergency planning
  • Find the most affordable vendors for food, shirts, and other items
  • Provide all equipment for registration and check in, the full course setup with aid stations, and finish line
  • Organizing and managing the volunteer team
  • Race photos and video
  • Chip timing and fast results
  • Post-event reporting
  • And more...

Race Timing

Not all events or race directors need the full race management package. We can still help! We offer full chip timing as a standalone service.

Here's what our timing service includes:

  • Setting up online registration
  • Promoting the event to the race community
  • Prepare participant bib numbers for packet pickup
  • Chip timing and fast results
  • Finish line setup
  • Post final results online
  • And more…
