We plan events for:
We will talk with you to learn about your goals and present levels of experience and the current state of your event.
It all starts with a discovery phone call to see if our goals, schedule, and a plethora of other factors align.
First, he came from up north, greater Detroit to be more precises. Secondly, he came from the imagination of my then five-year old daughter. I said to the kids, "What are we going to call Dad's race management company?" Then instructed them to take their time and think about it. Knowing that kids can come up with the most obscure ideas, I patiently waited.
Fast forward two weeks to where the five-year old comes blazing into the bedroom. The conversation went like this:
Kid: Dad, I have a name for your races!
Me: Sweet, let's hear it.
Kid: PIRATE!! (with ear to ear smile and arms out in excitement)
Me: "Pirate" hugh, that's it? Just...Pirate?
- brief pause -
Kid: No Daddy....um...Pirate....Pirate...PP..PPAPPAPPEP...PIRATE PERRY!
Me: I like it! Let's roll with that!
Thanks for a great event! That middle section was challenging but fun. Never run anywhere that had ropes to help climb out of the ravine.
Rocking Chair are great hosts too. From the parking guy wishing me well before the race to Jane knowing approximately what my time was when I was checking out, they are engaged with the event.

We hate suits and indoor florescent lighting. Hating suits is one of the reasons we got into this business in the first place. This is a stock image, we simply can't decide what pic to put in here and besides, we couldn't tell you where our suits, skirts or ties are anyway!
Fitness is fun. Race Directing is fun in its own sick way. Managing races is our way to merge hobbies, lifestyle, and the need to put food on the table! We get excited to watch people succeed and even more so when we get to be a part of it!
It is an honor for Race Director Paul Gigliotti to take part in the American Trail Running Association's (ATRA) annual race director conference as a panelist speaker. The ATRA conference covers topics such as "greening" events, registration and logistical improvements, and other trends in the industry. Also operating GIG Graphics, Paul gets a kick out of designing the apparel provided at Pirate Perry's Events!
Because she's run more races than you, she knows everything about check-in and packet pickup. We don't actually pay her, but we sure do appreciate her!
Jake co-directs us on the trail along with operating NC Arkansas' premier outfitter shop Norfork Adventure Supply. The man is a trail running and manicuring beast, with a fantastic beard.
Codirector, Jog With Your Dog - She has a love for animals and that's all there is to it!
Shirts, hats & those amazing Cup Collars, GIG Graphics keeps us looking fantastic!
