Spring Thaw 2013

Elite Runners Race Management (ERRM) was formed in 2013 when its parent company, Elite Runners & Walkers specialty store, which was founded in 1999, decided to expand on their already successful event management division. After receiving numerous requests for timing advice, in addition to organization of local races, Elite Runners & Walkers owner Kevin Smith, decided it was time to bring a more comprehensive approach to timing and event management in the Pittsburgh market. This new company, ERRM, has already offered guidance to charities and race organizations totaling approximately 20-30 events in the first year as well as 17 events carried over from it’s sister company, Elite Runners & Walkers.

With over 14 years of race management experience, including timing of smaller events over that period, Kevin and his staff have the knowledge to help any event from start to finish. They have directly organized and executed over 200 events since 1999 and acted as the co-directors and/or logistics coordinators on an additional 230 events since 2000. Ranging in size from 20 to 2,500 participants consisting of distances from 1 mile to 50K, on roads or trails the staff of ERRM has done it all, prepared to offer their expertise to your event.

The obvious first step in expansion for ERRM was to purchase a chip timing system. Following much investigation and intense consideration, ChronoTrack®™, the industry leader in timing endurance events, was the clear choice. ERRM is committed to utilizing cutting edge technology just as Elite Runners & Walkers has been a leader in the region, having been one of the first event hosts to incorporate online registration.

ERRM is proud to offer the capabilities of ChronoTrack®™ Live Race Casting featuring:
