Up & Running Race Management was founded by a small group of business professionals and athletes with a vision to host fun and challenging fitness-based events in the Central Florida region.
We started our timing business because we saw opportunities with certain venues and types of races in the area and wanted to bring a cost-effective, fresh approach to a sport that we are passionate about. We take pride in producing events that allow all participants, young or old and every experience levels, to challenge themselves, achieve goals and most importantly have fun! Whether you’re looking for a charitable 5K or a combination sport event we want to work with you.
