Why Choose Our Events?

Why One Step Beyond? Have a read of this, see if you share our passion and vision for running and multi-sport events and then make your decision...

Our key vision is to:

"Offer attractive and exciting running and multi-sport opportunities, ensuring that we deliver inclusive events for participants of all abilities and most importantly to a premier standard".

Since organising our first event in 1991 we have been passionate about multisport and running events, now in our 22nd year our values are still the same - organise safe, fun and competitive events that we would like to participate in ourselves. As a full time professional event management company, we are able to provide first class customer service throughout the year. In 2011 and 2012 over 50,000 people took part in one of our 80 events. In 2013 we will be organising the Club Relay Championships, National Sprint Championships, Sprint and Duathlon qualifying events as well as our premier events The Cambridge Half Marathon and The Outlaw Triathlon, not to mention the exciting new Outlaw Half!!!

In the past 2 years our events have taken 3 out of 4 of the top industry awards, voted for by both the National Governing Body and competitors! These awards are something we are extremely proud about and they drive us forward to constantly review, adapt and improve all our events.

OK, so that's enough about what we believe in and what we are trying to achieve this year. Let's get down to the reality of why so many people choose us? We like to think that it is the attention to detail, obviously, the ease of entry helps, either online, postal or over the phone. A lot of what is different about our events you may not even notice; you will be greeted when parking your vehicle and then directed by friendly and knowledge volunteers in registration. We have a dedicated group of volunteers that contains over 300 people, some that have been volunteering since our very first event.

What you should notice is the secure transition areas, high quality professional event signage, security wristbands for all athletes and event staff, swim hats, manned drink stations on course and at the finish. From your feedback, you told us how important it is that your event shirt fits you, so we supply shirts for both men and women in your size. If you look closely you will also see our key officials with professional communications, paramedics' onsite and on course, motorbike referees on the bike course and if you have been unlucky, then you might have got a lift in our sweeper vehicle. We could go on, but we don't want to give all of our secrets away.

What about you - so you have decided, after hours of searching to commit yourself to an event. Ahead of you are months, weeks or maybe just days of training. So, it is important too, that we the event organisers also spend, months, weeks and days of organising an event that we would wish to race in. Don't be fooled by marketing, fancy websites, lovely images and guarantees of a professionally organised event. Not all are the same, beware!!!

We have been competing in running and triathlon events since 1985 and believe in setting the standards, not following them but our name gives that away.

Fancy a bit of the action then come and join the 20,000+ other people who will be racing with us in 2013!
