We love producing events and since 1997 have produced over 1,000 racing events.  Our staff has a combined 75+ years timing, managing and promoting running, triathlon and cycling events.  We have produced and timed everything from cross country events to marathons, triathlons to cycling events and kids’ 5Ks to USA Olympic Trials.  Continental Event & Sports Management Staff has produced and timed one of the world’s most grueling races…the World Marathon Challenge consisting of 7 marathons in 7 continents, in 7 days.

We understand that every customer is different and thus we have something for everyone, depending on the complexity, size and budget of your event, we have the right formula for you.  Our slogan is, “Leave everything to us. We just want you (the client) to shake hands and kiss babies.” Why should you worry about logistics, permits or the ordering of t-shirts and bibs when we can take all the worry out of your hands?

Our staff and technology allow us to provide the right level of service for any race budget.
