Q & A: Topics- Sanctioning and WPA participation.
Q: What does it mean for a race to be sanctioned by the WPA?
A: One of the primary goals of the WPA is to provide support for race directors. What this means in practice is registration and timing solutions to make for a better race experience for both the racer and directors, utilizing an easy registration process and results that are computed quickly and accurately.
Q: Do all races need to be sanctioned by the WPA?
A: Races do not need to be sanctioned by the WPA. However races that are not sanctioned by the WPA will not be provide the same consistent guidelines and state of the art race management systems.
Q: Do I have to be a member of the WPA to participate in a WPA Sanctioned event?
A: No, however your support helps offset some of the costs to implement these high tech solutions. As a member you will be part of the WPA rankings. We will crown a WPA champion (by division) in each race series that is run at year’s end by region.
