We know that any time a large group gathers, that there is an impact within the host community. Some of this impact includes increased commerce since most of these gatherings bring people from all over the world. This means increased income for hotels, restaurants and even local stores. It also mean extra work for local employees during busy seasons.
We also know that with an increase of visitation to communities, often there are negative impacts on the surrounding environment with increased use of trails and other systems that support outdoor pursuits.
Wander Project wants to help limit the negative impacts that come along with group athletic events such as endurance races. We seek to partner with small and medium sized endurance racing events, who have a sincere desire to be a positive force in the communities in which they operate, but who already feel short staffed and overwhelmed with the essentials of event production.
By partnering with Wander Project, Race Directors can be certain that race events are a positive force in the communities they serve.
