Hugh White – Director for Sport, Culture & Parks, Nottingham City Council. As race director of the Robin Hood Marathon Chris Sumner worked closely with Nottingham City Council and the race sponsors to build an event that Nottingham is rightly proud of. The Robin Hood Marathon is a unique and complex event which now features five different races on the same day. Excellent organisation and attention to detail has ensured that Nottingham’s residents and thousands of visitors to the city enjoy an annual event with an enviable reputation.

Robert Henderson – UK Marketing Manager, Mizuno Corporation UK. It’s always a pleasure working with Chris, his depth of knowledge is extensive, his organisational skills obsessive and his ability to deliver exactly what Mizuno needs always exceeds our expectations. In short he is exactly what you need to take the stress out of live events.

Cliff Hilton – Sustainability Manager EMEA, Oracle Corporation. I fully endorse and recommend the services offerd by Racesolutions who over recent years have fully supported our CSR sporting program, delivering professional race organisation and support services on time, and to budget.

Chris Parry – Managing Partner www.marathon-photos.com I highly recommend the services that Racesolutions can offer to event organisers. I have worked with Chris (Sumner) for 8 years now and I have found him to be highly inspirational, very efficient and more importantly, great fun to work with.

About Racesolutions

Chris Sumner set up Racesolutions limited in 2013 after leaving Sweatshop (Brasher Leisure Limited) where he ran the Events Division. Chris was responsible for buidling two of the largest and most respected races in the country, the then Experian Robin Hood Marathon (now sponsored by Ikano) and the Mizuno Reading Half Marathon (now sponsored by Sage). He took these two problematic local events and built them into the high profile mass participations races they are today.

Chris was also the race director for the Chris Brasher memorial race (2004 Richmond Park) working with the London Marathon team to commemorate Chris Brasher, Olympic gold medalist, co-founder of the London Marathon and along with Chris Chataway pacer for Roger Bannisters first sub four minute mile.
