Getting Temporary Shelters for a Marathon Event

By Olive Subscribe to RSS | May 2nd 2012 | Views:

Holding outdoor events is common in the summer and a lot goes into the preparation in order to ensure that the event is a success. One of the most important factors to consider when organizing the events is a form of shelter.

A marathon event is a fun activity where people get to measure their endurance as they compete over the long distance race. While most of the action may happen on the road, it is important to have shelters at the start and finish point, as well as along the race route. The shelters along the route are used to store water for the runners, and also to take care of those who may pull out of the race due to injury or for any other reason.

The locations of the marathon events are often public roads that are closed for the event. This means that on regular days, there is no shelter. The organizers have to put up the temporary shelters specifically for the event. The shelters often range in size depending on the use. Excellent events usually require more organization and more shelters are required to take care of the large number of officials, members of the press, organizers and other personalities. A local marathon may not have as many people, but will also require the shelters. Officials and event organizers need somewhere to relax as they wait for the event, which usually takes hours, to come to an end.

Medical personnel are often a common sight at marathon events. Most of the runners, unless they are Kenyans, usually find the event quite draining and many of them require medical attention after the race. The temporary shelters can be used as first-aid clinics where the exhausted runners can be attended.

Shelters along the route of the race also come in handy to take care of strugglers who find the grueling race too much for them. Medical personnel set up camp along the route, and they need the shelters to carry out their work effectively. Some of the shelters even have portable beds and other fixtures that come in handy during the race.

In most cases, marathon event organizers will hire, rather than buy the shelters. Many companies specialize in renting out the shelters. Some of the service providers provide the shelters as well as people to set them up. This means that all the organizers have to do is call and order the shelters they need, and the service providers do the rest.

It is important to look around for a company that has quality shelters, as well as a good customer service policy. This will help to ensure that the event can go along with no hitches. Look for a company that provides quality services at a reasonable cost to avoid disappointment. Before you sign the contract, it is important to inspect the shelters to make sure you are getting what you ordered for. Having a shelter come down during an event can be very embarrassing and will reflect badly on the organizers so make sure you never compromise on the quality!
