Why Us

Race Rebel exists to turn running events into successful fundraisers. Whether it's a 5k, a fun run & walk, a half marathon, a full marathon, or more, we take the extra steps needed to help turn the event into an incredible annual experience. 

The Race Rebel team is a collection of runners, fundraisers, sponsors and volunteers. We know what it takes to put on a successful race, and more importantly, we know what it takes to bring on great sponsors and increase race attendance year after year. 

As compared to traditional timing companies, we have several advantages.

  1. SIMPLE FEES: We know the purpose of the race is to raise funds for a cause, and we will never nickel and dime our partners. In the case of races with fewer runners, our entry-level pricing is often hundreds of dollars less expensive than traditional companies. We view our partners as partners, and we know in future years, we'll help our partners grow their races.
  2. PREMIUM QUALITY: Every event we support comes standard with all the ameneties needed to make the race a success, and to bring runners back for following years. Because we care about the longevity of our events, we will make sure every race gets the works. We don't want our partners to pay extra for something they don't need, so we take care of those hard decisions.
  3. NO TRIP OR SLIP HAZARDS AT THE FINISH LINE: We only use equipment that is fully safe for runners. There are absolutely no tripping hazards, unlike the mat-systems used by most competitors. The last thing we want our partners worrying about is an unintended fall. 
  4. ONE-STOP SHOP: With most races, there are numerous mini-decisions that have to be made. What kind of t-shirts are needed, what are good medals, what kind of awards do we need, and what marketing materials do we need? Race Rebel is here for our partners, and we'll find and recommend the best options in each category as part of our service. We can also make some custom items in-house, which will help your race stand out from the crowd.
  5. FUNDRAISING SUPPORT: At the end of the day, the main value of a 5k isn't just the run, but it's the increase support to the cause. Because of that, part of our standard package includes additional sponsorship opportunities that our partners can use to raise additional funds before the race even starts.

Race Rebel truly exists to help support the many causes that make our community great. We support causes across Northwest Indiana, Chicago, and Southwest Michigan.
