Why are we different?
Unlike many other event management consultancies - we actually understand the athlete and participant. We’ve been in their shoes. The pre-race stress and the pressure to perform, the meticulous planning, the winter training blocks, the risks of racing and competing, the skill required to descend at speed or negotiate a series of corners in a bunch without posing a danger to others, or the art of pacing yourself over a distance and resisting that urge to go just that bit quicker early in the race. Whether an elite athlete or a beginner level participant, everyone has been through a preparation and training process and that’s why we think it’s important to always put them at the centre of everything we do.
We’re constantly striving to create the best experience for each individual and we’re passionate about ensuring that whether the event is a local open road sportive for a beginner cyclist, an experienced club runners 20th half marathon and striving for that PB, or whether they’re lined up on the start line of the Olympic Road Race and this is their one in four year chance to change the course of sporting history. We focus on making sure that each event is delivered ensuring equal opportunity, with a fair and level playing field - always putting the athlete, participant and sport, at the centre of the stage.
