November 15-17, 2021| Hollywood Beach Marriott |Hollywood Beach, FL
Note the new weekday schedule (Monday - Wednesday)
What a year! As we look ahead to what we hope will be a slow return to normal in 2021, we know that our sport has been tested. Some of our peers, their companies and events may never recover. But for many of us 2020 has been a learning experience, albeit one we could have done without.
Because of COVID-19 impacts, we had to take the step to cancel the 2020 meeting, but we plan to be back to a full program in November of 2021. We anticipate covering a range of topics of interest to race directors, but we will devote some of the 2021 RRM Race Directors' Meeting to the subject of the pandemic. Our panel and topics will allow us to share useful and vital knowledge as we move ahead. We will not dwell on the damage done but rather seek to empower event staff with tools for the future. So we encourage you to come to Hollywood to share “war stories” and to celebrate the resilience of our sport and those who make it possible.
Take advantage of this opportunity to upgrade and improve your event. Learn, talk, socialize, debate and exchange ideas with other race officials. Network with event directors, sponsors, national running media, sports organization officials and industry suppliers.
Join us on the beach in Hollywood, FL (6 miles from Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood Airport).
We will be offering an excellent room rate at this beautiful oceanfront property (details on the rate and how to reserve your room will be posted here when they become available. Join the many race committees that reward committee members with a trip to this meeting. It’s a great way to give key volunteers or staff a special treat while educating and rejuvenating them for next year’s events. In addition, the meeting offers you the opportunity to visit our many exhibitors and to network in a casual atmosphere. And be sure to consider the special four for the price of three offer.
Hope to see you November 15 at the MarthonGuide.com/Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Welcome Reception, and at the two days of meeting sessions and social activities that follow. This year more than ever we need to gather and we hope and need to have your input and support.

The Trade Show
Race officials have a chance to "shop" for all their needs at the two-day Race Directors' Trade Exhibit. The show provides a very efficient way to see what's new for race directors and running clubs, and to meet people you may have been talking to on the phone for years.
The weekend offers numerous informal gatherings--including the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Coffee Breaks; Gatorade Breaks; Keynote Dinner; and MarathonGuide.com/Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic and Ashworth Awards evening receptions--to renew acquaintances, make new friends and learn from your colleagues in a relaxed resort atmosphere.
