See what our clients are saying about working with Race Day Events!

I just can’t say enough great things about Race Day Events and the amazing staff that help put on the best events in the Midwest. As a runner, triathlete and race director myself, I have worked with, and experienced the expertise of the staff at Race Day first hand. Race Day has grown from a small hobby and dream of one individual into a thriving, compassionate and successful business. Ryan Griessmeyer and his staff know all the ins and outs of the business, from equipment rental, course layouts, registration, awards, t-shirts, volunteers and race permits. These guys even know how to put on a pretty amazing Taste of Madison!

Teaming with Race Day Events over the last 7 years has allowed me to focus my attention on other more important parts of race directing. As a athlete, I am always looking for Race Day races first! Whatever your needs are, Race Day is sure to surpass your expectations.
— Stacy Hastings, Race Director of Parkinson's Half Marathon & 5K
The Madison Shamrock Shuffle has worked with Race Day Events from the moment that we realized that we wanted to expand our race. We had a vision to expand the race in large leaps and bounds. From 2003, our race has expanded from 400 to 5,000 and it wouldn't have been possible without so many contributions including those from Race Day Events. They've always given us personal attention and help where/when we needed it.
We consider them a part of our race and I expect that they will continue to be a great partner. I recommend them to anyone who likes to see a race go from good to great.

The superior level of organization, event management and professionalism of Race Day Events is reflected in the wonderful job they do with MFI’s events: the Madison Marathon and Half, Twilight 10/5k and Taste of Madison. They are “hands on”, extremely knowledgeable and always look to improve the events. RDE’s staff, both full and part-time are smart, hard working and make every event look its best!

This was my first time doing this race, and it was well organized and has a very nice flat-ish course. Loved that they allowed my dog to run with me - he had a blast! Will definitely be doing this one again; nice to have this race as an option for the first race of the year.

I participated in the Pardeeville Triathlon. First, let me just say it is an AWESOME event & I had a great time! Every detail was taken care of ..a beautiful place for a tri, organized, friendly, a really great experience!
— Brenda Klink, Participant
Race Day Events has a reputation for being one of the best event management businesses in the country. In working with them on events in the past, it was an easy decision to bring them in to help with the first Salisbury Marathon/Half-Marathon/5k event in late April. RDE has been there, every step of the way, to help plan the logistics of the event and we look forward to their professional execution of our events. TCR Event Management and Race Day Events are working together to make sure that this race will be a memorable experience for all involved.

Employees are always very polite. Races are well managed, and thought out. Also love the bling.

Just wanted to extend a thanks for your team that helped with PSCS. They were incredibly capable and extremely helpful.  We could have hired a different fence contractor but none would have came remotely close. I would suggest your crew a hundred times over. We really appreciate the professionalism of your staff and willingness to get the job done. They absolutely exceeded expectations.
