Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2009
Irvine-based race management company Renegade Racing (http://www.renegaderaceseries.com) announced it signed a management contract for the Pasadena Marathon, which will be held on February 21, 2010. Renegade Racing is working with the non-profit organization Pasadena Forward and the City of Pasadena to produce the relatively new race. The Pasadena Marathon is the catch-all name for a number of events that will be held on February 21, which include a marathon (26.2 mile run), ½ marathon (13.1 mile run), 5K run and a marathon bike tour (http://www.pasadenamarathon.org).
Renegade Racing produces many local running and triathlon events in Irvine and the Greater Orange County and Los Angeles area. Many local non-profit organizations hire Renegade Racing to produce events, such as the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation’s Cinco de Mayo half marathon (http://www.pcrf-kids.org) in Irvine and the Tustin Public Schools Foundation’s Dinosaur Dash (http://www.tpsf.net).
The company also supports many local non-profits for events Renegade Racing wholly owns, such as BJ’s Restaurant Foundation and Pathways Church for the Make Room for Santa Run on December 13, 2009 in Irvine, Olive Crest’s Fun and Fit Program and the Orange County Conservation Corps for the Peters Canyon Summer Trail Run Series (June, July & Aug) in Tustin.
Owner and Race Director Jonathan Pauley, a long time Orange County resident, loves working with non-profits on running and walking events. “In a well-managed event you can really see participants connect with the charitable cause; the smile on their face, the feeling of personal accomplishment and charitable giving makes my job totally worthwhile”, says Jonathan Pauley. Jonathan couples his own participatory experience into his race management style; he has competed in over 30 marathons, 12 Ironman Triathlons and countless other running and triathlon events. He has also been on the fundraising side of these kinds of events and has raised over $175,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (http://www.challengedathletes.org) over the years.
