Tips from SR

An update from SRS

change

At the end of each series the volunteers at Sandhills Race Series meet together to discuss the series, the races, what worked for that series and what did not work for the series as a whole.  After much discussion, at the end of the 2014 Spring Series the SRS decided to discontinue the use of points.  In general it seemed participants were running in the series for the enjoyment of the run and were not interested in the points aspect.  Attendance at points ceremonies was very low.  The Sandhills Race Series is a volunteer run organization and we wanted to put forth our best efforts to improve the series.  We decided to place greater emphasis on  race support and race promotion as well as community involvement.

We want to thank everyone for continuing to be part of the Sandhills Race Series and we are excited about the events we have coming up this spring and fall.

We’re looking for a new social media volunteer!

The Sandhills Race Series is currently seeking a volunteer to help with social media. Responsibilities will include mostly Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Word Press blogging. We are looking for someone who is already familiar with these programs. [Word Press is the exception, as long as you are willing to learn!] It is very important for you to be passionate about running and a participant in SRS events. An awesome perk of this volunteer position is that you will be granted free entry to all races!

Ultimately, your responsibility will be to share the details of SRS news and upcoming races on the blog and promote them via Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest is where you are able to show your love of running, through tips, inspirational quotes, and even jokes. These responsibilities can be managed from home in your spare time. This is a great opportunity for someone who already loves to blog, post, tweet, and pin, to learn more about social media from a professional standpoint, and to meet race directors and see the work that goes on at the awesome organizations SRS races benefit.

While I have very much enjoyed my experience doing social media for SRS, it’s time for me to move on. Such is military life!
