At Finish Line Productions we are committed to creating events where every athlete can be challenged and have fun. Our events include running, triathlon, duathlon, and training camps. Our events won't be huge, but we hope you will walk away saying that they are some of the best events around. We have a specific philosophy about our events and the first thing is they have to be fun while still being challenging!
As an event company we value and appreciate your feedback so please let us know what you think and what we can do to improve our events, or give us suggestions for new events and locations.
It doesn't matter if this is your first race, or your 50th. Your experience should be one that you remember as one of your best. That's our commitment to you - fun, challenge, safety, great event locations and a professional attitude.
Santa Cruz is a great place to come and race - check it out!
Who's Who at FLP
Tim and Penni Bengtson
After years of commuting from Boulder Creek to Silicon Valley it was time to pull the plug and do something we felt passionate about -- having our own business! So we started Finish Line Productions to bring new races and event management services to the Santa Cruz and Northern California area. This experience has brought us into contact with a lot of awesome people - both athletes and race directors. Everyone on our staff has experience in running or triathlon and brings an athlete's eye to the creation and production of an event.
Tim is an electrical engineer and private pilot whose attention to detail enables us to have one of the most reliable race timing systems available today.
Penni is an Ironman triathlete and runner, a Level II Certified USAT Race Director and Coach.
The rest of our awesome crew!
Tiffany WIlliams, a USAT Certified Race Director, and works registration and timing to make sure that the timing comes off without a hitch and that she can decipher everyone's entry form handwriting! Plus she gets all those timing chips into bags and labels them so you know who you are!
Page Mitchell works registration and Marshall Williams is our guy Friday who pretty much helps wherever he's needed.
the rest of the crew is rounded out with Anthony Sicola our Volunteer Director, Ruth Callahan our Sponsorship Director, Caitlin Gigliotti our Medical Director.
Mike Bennett is our swim course coordinator extraordinaire, and a very accomplished swimmer and Ironman athlete, as is Dave Reid is our bike course coordinator. The course crew is rounded out by Farrah Kemp, run course coodinator and social media maven, making sure that Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other social media sites are updated..
Last but certainly not least, our race annoucer Will Slocomb who keeps everyone entertained at the start and finish line.
