Help on Event Day
Here are some documents we hope will save you time and aggravation on the day of your event:
You can download all pre-registered participants directly from your website into an Excel spreadsheet. Please refer to How to download a registration list? for details. This is a handy document, as you can use it to sign-in participants, record time and create a results table for your website.
Print off a few releases to use just in case some of your guests have not registered online. Please refer to How to deal with last minute registrations for details.
Ask your participants to record their times on the Registration sheet after the event or to email them to you promptly. Type all handwritten info of last minute registrations as well as all times/distances into your Registration list. This is the document you should forward to Sibylle to get your results up on your Club Fat Ass website promptly and accurately. Please note that you can download all your pre-registered participants directly from your registration page at How to download a registration list?
Aid stations are places where participants in regular endurance sports events might expect to find food and fluids. Click here for information about you might organize aid stations.
Club Fat Ass events are intended to be low key, low maintenance and low impact. While we promote that events offer no aid, no marking and no t-shirts, Event Hosts have some discretion. Click here for thoughts on how family and friends might contribute to a safe and successful event.
