In 2013, Scott Cranfill and his running friends decided to organize their own monthly races to help them stay fit. The running club was named 'Half Marathon a Month club' and each month members gathered at a new route and laced up for the challenge of completing the distance. Some, including Scott, completed a half marathon every month for five consecutive years, crazy!
Scott was also the race organizer of his own half marathon/10K/5K event for many years hosting thousands of participants. This involved a significant learning curve in working with government officials, volunteers, participants, sponsors, and charities to execute a successful event.
The experience of managing small club runs to all aspects of a large scale event proved to be invaluable and lead to a desire to demystify the process and technology for other race organizers. So, Scott authored 'Organize a 5K' as a guide to others that want to raise awareness for their cause through running/walking events and invented a modern race timing technology to enable volunteers to time events so race organizers can reduce their race timing expense and raise more money.
Scott is the founder of KORGEO, a race organization service provider, based in Indianapolis.
The KORGEO team believes that races have the power to a bring like-minded community together to promote physical health, raise money for charities, and bring awareness to great causes.
