Hello Everyone and Happy New Year! 

It’s time to start thinking about your 2017 event and we are here to help! 

The Annual MDRA Race Director’s Conference will be held on the morning  of  Saturday, January 14th at the Edina Community Center.   We will be covering an array of topics and will have vendors, samples and speakers available for your questions and concerns regarding your event.   

The agenda is below and will feature speakers from Twin Cities Orthopedics, Minneapolis Park Police and Twin Cities in Motion along with some of our crew from Anderson Race Management.

Every attendee will get a race director’s guide of ‘how to and when to’ do things;  MDRA Annual Calendar, samples, a bag and other goodies and door prizes.

We will also be serving bagels, coffee and juice.
