Company Background & Services


Set Up Events is one of the nation's oldest triathlon production companies. In 1994, Bill Scott started Set Up Events out of his garage in Wilmington, NC. Since that time a number of the best triathlon race directors on the east coast got their start as staffers at Set Up Events, including Jeremey Davis (still with Set Up), Greg Hawkins who left to start his own company - Kinetic MultiSports, and Benji Jones who left to start his own company - Jones Racing.  It's safe to say that Set Up Events has probably produced more triathlons than any other company in the world with the exception of World Triathlon Corp. (Ironman).

Today, in addition to all the triathlons that Set Up produces, the company puts on dozens of running races, Viking Dash Trail Runs, open water swim races, road bike, mountain bike and gravel bike races, stand-up paddle board races, duathlons, and kids triathlons.
