Run to the Rescue
 

This was another great year for registrations at our event.  We could not have done it without Running Guru and the incredible array of tools you offer on RunningGuru.com. Not only do you offer an ever-expanding set of tools that let us grow our event in unique ways, but I want you to commend you for the level of support you offer.  I work in IT, so I am familiar with the demands put on system administrators.   I think your level of professionalism, speed to respond, and concern for our best interest has to be tops for the industry.  Keep up the awesome work.  We will be back!

"We increased registrations more than 300% over last year! Biking Guru has been perfect for us because our race is a grassroots effort that gets all our volunteers involved without handing it over to a professional management company. The system and support give us the tools we need to manage and grow our event!"

Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue
 

2012 marks the 30th anniversary for the Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue, and to celebrate this milestone, we decided to have our first ever 5K walk/run. To say we had no idea how to begin is putting it lightly. I have no experience creating web pages and the Biking Guru system makes it so easy! Their technology is amazing and the Biking Guru team has been a tremendous help in the rare instance I got stuck on something. I would recommend Biking Guru to everyone planning a race, from the first timers to those who have hosted dozens of races, and we will definitely be back next year!

High Line Canal Run 5k/10k- 30th Annual
 

The numbers say it all! We increased our racer count by 38% by switching to Biking Guru! The staff has exceptional knowledge when it comes to marketing and attaining sponsors.  They're also race savvy.

The registration site and all its features are a perfect fit for us. We also were able to add features that worked for us in making the registration process a breeze for our customers.  I highly recommend Biking Guru to anyone that I talk to about what a great experience it was in working with them!

Mother's Day Mile - Nancy Reinisch, Race Director  
   

This was my first year switching online registration to Biking Guru. I was more than pleased with the service, attention to detail, immediate call and email back, and accuracy of the registrations.

The team at Biking Guru was friendly and on top of everything. No question was too silly and no problem insurmountable for them.  The timeliness of the checks to our benefit Advocate Safehouse Project was greatly appreciated. All around I was impressed with the operation. We'll be back for out 13th running of the Mother's Day Mile next year with Biking Guru on board!

Thanks,
Nancy Reinisch

David Manthey - Coach and Race Director  

I can’t speak highly enough about RunningGuru.com and the services the team provides.  As a Race Director and Owner/Director of Denver’s largest marathon training program, I have researched and used other registration sites but they fall short of RunningGuru.com. 

I have complete peace of mind knowing that everything is working smoothly and securely with the registration process. 

And I especially appreciate the attention to detail, customer service, and prompt follow-up that Biking Guru provides for any of my questions.  And as a distance runner himself, the founder, John, “gets it” and is very innovative.  He takes the time to understand my needs, and is routinely providing me with new options to improve the experience for my clients, resulting in a more streamlined and efficient business process for me.

Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon

I'm now in my second year with Biking Guru as our race registration partner and I could not be happier!  They are responsive when I have specific needs and immediately get back to me with solutions.  They are respectful of our participants and do not bombard them with emails, advertisements or obligations.  Our charity relies heavily on our event to raise funds and partnering with a responsible company is key to our success.  

In these times of faceless service and competition with other events and charitable organizations, Biking Guru has lived up to very high standards. They are great!

Lakewood Tiger Prowl 5k

The LHS Foundation is a fundraising arm of Lakewood High School, and every fall we put on the Tiger Prowl 5K Run and Walk to raise money for athletic and  activity groups at the school. I love being involved with the Prowl, but I have little experience in being a race director. Thankfully two years ago I found Biking Guru, a great group of people who help us set up a fun and very professional 5K event. Biking Guru's on-line registration has made sign up  very easy for participants, and the race day coordination is outstanding.  The post race photos were a big hit with all the runners and walkers.

I would tell anyone involved in race planning that they need Biking Guru to be with them every step of the way.

Inaugural XTERRA Marathon of Trail Races
 

I want to thank you so very much for being a part of our event on Saturday! Your photographers were great guys and I look forward to seeing their photos - I'm sure they will be wonderful. I can't remember their names, but the one who was out on the course helped out with one of our only emergencies of the day by running back to the start finish area to inform us of a runner who was having difficulties.

Again, I want to say that I think you provide a much needed service to the running community and I hope that other companies will follow your lead. I think you will profit from having reasonably priced photos that many more people will buy, as opposed to trying to profit so much by selling one photo that is over priced and caused people to pass them up. I have only bought the photo from the race that I qualified for Boston in and have not been willing to pay the same price for any of the many others that have been taken of me in races. At your prices, I would for sure have paid the .99 for the image for all of them, but paid for prints as well. I believe you've made a good business decision.
