Convention Race Testimonials

I have worked with Cheryl Anker of Off N’ Running Tours for over six years. In that time, our events have been flawless. Cheryl is extremely responsive and is on top of every detail from city license, course certification, and medical presence to refreshment selection and beyond. She manages the relationship with her vendors exceptionally well. Cheryl is respectful and attentive to our varying needs and challenges as a client. I would highly recommend her to those looking for a smooth successful event.

Our Run/Walk event is in its fifth year. Before we met Cheryl and Off ‘N Running Tours, we had to find a new race vendor every year in each city our meeting was held. We really wanted to find a company that would travel with us year-to-year, city-to-city, so that the process of planning and executing our run/walk from start to finish, would be handled by a company that knows what our goals and expectations are, and would work as part of our team of valued vendors to support our conference. ONRT has become that partner!

The AABB National Blood Foundation’s annual Run for Research has been organized by Off-n-Running Tours for several consecutive years. It’s beneficial to us to use the same company year after year to develop trust and to improve the event for participants each year. Off-n-Running Tours manages all aspects of the event. To know that all necessary city permits and the coordination of emergency and safety personnel are in place is a huge relief. The Off-n-Running Tours team is always pleasant to work with leading up to the event and onsite.

The Run was great! Met lots of interesting fellow runners, and enjoyed seeing the sun rise off the Bay at 6:45 in the morning!! Very well organized event, in my opinion! Great treats before & after the Run, and very friendly staff! Keep up the terrific work, and I look forward to participating in future events!

I have managed the Run For Vision for several years and ever since Off n Running began taking over the logistics, I have received great accolades from the surgeons and Bausch & Lomb employees who take part. Cheryl's attention to detail, follow through and performance prior to and on the day of the Run ensured that each run was a complete success for Bausch & Lomb.
