About Young and Associates
Jim Young , the owner of Young and Associates, directed his first road race in 1981. Since then, first as a volunteer, then as owner of Young and Associates, he has directed over 100 running events.
In addition to directing, Young and Associates has provided finish line, scoring and registration to races up and down the East Coast from Boston, MA, to Naples, FL. In 2011, Young and Associates was contracted by 74 different events to provide technical assistance. The company utilizes MyLaps timing in all their events.
Formed in 1989, Young and Associates is a full-time sports event management firm. In addition to providing technical services to road races, duathlons, and triathlons, Jim Young directed The Race Director's Workshop for 10 years and wrote the "Race Director's Notebook" for RUNNING JOURNAL for 12 years.
Although Young and Associates now concentrates on local events, the firm was selected to furnish finish line and results services for the 1992 Charlotte Observer Marathon 10K which served as the National 10K Championships for both men and women. Previously, Young and Associates has served in a similar capacity for the National Half-Marathon Championships in Parkersburg, WV, and the National Masters 8K Championships in Naples, FL.
A listing of all events in which Young and Associates has worked in the past twelve months can be found under "References." Events which are considering contracting with us for services are invited to contact any of those events for an independent evaluation of our services.
