No gifts

Posted on 11/22/2012 at 10:57:37 AM by David Patt

NEVER use your position as Race Director for personal gain.  Do not give anybody the impression they can do business with your event or organization if they give you favors (or bribes?).

Do not accept gifts, honoraria, or any monetary or in-kind contributions in your role as race director.  Do not accept product from sponsors.  Tell the provider of the gifts that you are prohibited from accepting them.

Anything that cannot be tactfully turned down should be handed over to the organization (not the race management company) that owns the race.  It should be raffled off, auctioned, or donated to a worthy recipient.

If you are a volunteer race director, you should not receive any compensation for your hours of toil.  You agreed to do this for nothing.

If you are a paid race director, your fee is your compensation.  You should not receive anything else.

Check out the RRCA Race Director Code of Ethics for detailed standards of conduct.

I comment when I like a article on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed. And on this post No gifts | Association of Running Event Directors. I was moved enough to leave a commenta response :-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it simply me or do some of the comments come across like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
