In conjunction with the Road Race Management Race Directors' Meeting, Road Race Management and MarathonFoto will again honor an individual who has made a major difference in the sport with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The award is for contributions to the sport of long distance running over the course of a lifetime. Nominees, who may be either living or deceased, should have made major contributions to the sport in more than one area. Longtime race directors are eligible for this award, but it is designed to encompass a broader group of individuals who have made a significant impact on the sport over a number of years as organization leaders, advocates, officials, journalists, industry representatives, innovators and athletes, etc.
"We seek again to honor a 'sport changer'...a person who has really made a difference," says Phil Stewart, RRM editor and publisher.
Nominations from the public are being solicited and will close on September 21, 2019. A ten-person committee will choose the winner, who will be honored at the Road Race Management Race Directors' Keynote dinner in St. Petersburg, FL, on November 8.
