About Us

The Race Organiser Ltd (TRO) specialises in planning, organising, timing and delivering mass participation events.

TRO was founded by Craig Thornton in 2012. Craig left his career in finance to pursue his passion for sporting events management. Craig is a keen runner and cyclist, having completed over 100 marathons, half marathons, cycling and triathlon events. The combination of Craig's financial background and extensive experience in attending, and organising, sporting events means that TRO is the perfect choice to organise an event.

Our service is a comprehensive program comprising everything required to promote and manage a successful event. This includes marketing support, race plans, meeting risk assessment obligations and health and safety requirements, developing corporate social responsibility and environmental objectives.

TRO can do everything needed to stage a successful event, and we adapt our management approach to ensure that every event program is tailored to the location, event objectives and local authority stipulations.

We recognise that every event is unique, and what puts TRO ahead of our competitors is our hands-on, collaborative approach to event management. Continuous improvement is a key part of our business development and therefore we are always working with clients to review what works, as well as what doesn’t work, in order to ensure that the next event is even better than the last!
