There are a few common rules of thumb you should follow before starting on such an event.

  1. Be excited about your event.  You will get mired down in features and hindered by red tape and everything not going as intended.  When this transpires, your enthusiasm for the cause will help you stay concentrated on the end goal, motivating people.
  2. Engage in other events.  If you want to set up a 5K road race you better be accustomed with how they operate.  Sign up for a few local events in your place to get the lay of the land.

Below are some details on your particular sporting occasion:

Road Events. Helpful tips include how to secure a budget. Road races can be logistical horrors. 5Ks are by far the simples to draw runners to.  Think of beautiful routes that would excite people, no one needs to run into an metropolitan park.  Cool T-shirts is great too.

Golf Competition .  As you might imagine from a well-budgeted game, there are businesses that will organize the entire event for you.   But if you wish to do it yourself, this quick checklist will give you an idea of what’s included.  As you can see, organizing a golf tournament is probably one of the more complicated events to achieve

Basketball Competition.  There’s not a lot out there on how to order a basketball event.  There are articles that provide some effective tips though.  Similar to a bowling match, it’s fairly simple to get participants and you can work with the facilities to accommodate most if not all of the material needed.  This is also a great winter choice if you’re looking to do something when the weather is not good.

Bike Drive. There’s not a ton of details out there, but I did find this little piece from a popular magazine. I would recommend using the common guidelines for establishing a road race but bear in mind that bike rides are typically much hard and usually cross through more than one town.  You’ll have to prepare your route and work with each city to ensure everything runs easily.
