Today, Kimbia Racing announced the Charleston Marathon chose the company’s Race Registration solution to provide their participants with a superior experience. Registration kicks off this month for the 5th annual event that raises funds for The Youth Endowment for the Arts (YEA) and is scheduled for Saturday, January 17, 2015. Showcasing the beauty and the history of the Lowcountry, this scenic 26.2-mile run starts in downtown Charleston and ends in North Charleston.
“Participation in our weekend race festival has grown significantly over the past four years, thus antiquating a standard registration template,” said Liz Alford, Executive Director of the Charleston Marathon. “Kimbia Racing provides a flexible solution that meets our current and future needs while enabling us to take the user experience, whether racing, volunteering, fundraising or all three, to the next level.”
“We are excited to partner with the Charleston Marathon,” said Simon Essl, General Manager, Kimbia Racing. “It’s great to see a young and rapidly growing race take control of their event at such an important point in its growth cycle. Maintaining control of their funds, data and brand will aid in this growth and help the Marathon raise meaningful funds for the Youth Endowment for the Arts.
