Gallagher Fitness Resources, along with RunSignUp, is hosting this Race Directors social. We'll be discussing opportunities to improve promotion of running events in and around Salem and the Willamette Valley and to increase event participation.

Since 1997, Gallagher Fitness Resources has directed, supported, sponsored and assisted countless organizations with their races. Whether it's putting the race on, providing bib numbers, raffle items, t-shirts, courses, in-store registration, listing the event on our Race Calendar or providing consultation on how to start, GFR has been there for all sized events.

Our partnership with RunSignUp allows us to take our assistance for your event to another level. Our primary goal is to create a more connected community of race directors and participants. By linking available resources, we will create a strong, interactive community of runners, walkers and race participants excited about your events and our store, Gallagher Fitness Resources.

Please join us on Tuesday, January 12th. We're excited to share ways our ActiveSalem team, powered by RunSignUp, will help you get to the next level.
