Easy communications with your runners is very important. Your EMail is an important part of that. Fortunately, Google GMail makes this easy. There are two important features:
- EMail name – set up MyRace@gmail.com or Info@MyRace.com easily.
- Have a single email address that gets forwarded to multiple people on your race committee so questions get answered quickly.
Google has a for pay version of Gmail that costs $50/year. You get the ability to use a specific domain (as long as you have access to that domain). This page offers detailed information on GMail for Business.
This is a common feature among most email systems, including GMail. If an email comes into the Info@MyRace.com address, you can auto-forward that to one or more people and their emails. Make sure you set up a mechanism for making sure someone replies to all posts, or you don’t duplicate efforts!
