Alpha Win Acquires Southern California Race Management Group
Saugerties, NY (January 22, 2021) Alpha Win, an endurance race organization formerly known as HITS Endurance, is proud to announce that it has purchased Renegade Racing, a premier race management firm with events centered in the Southern California region. The acquisition significantly expands the endurance race offerings available from Alpha Win in the western United States.
“Our acquisition of Renegade Racing complements our overall endurance race lineup so we can now provide more race opportunities to our ever expanding customer base,” said Tommy Struzzieri, President and CEO of Alpha Win. “This investment represents an important strategic opportunity to further our ability to offer both short and long distance running, cycling and triathlon events in some of the most attractive locations in the country.”
In 2019, Renegade Racing operated more than 40 endurance events for itself and for others under various contractual arrangements. The arrival of the coronavirus pandemic resulted in the cancellation of many of the events in 2020. However, current plans are to resurrect these events in 2021 and 2022. “We couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to hand-off our family of races to a company with the background and experience in event production that Alpha Win has,” said Jonathan Pauley, founder and former Director of Renegade Racing. “We know that all of our stakeholders, from the permitting officials to our charity partners and our athletes will embrace Alpha Win as they have us for more than a decade.”
Over the years, Renegade has been recognized for producing safe and fun experiences for athletes of every ability. They have also contributed to the critical fundraising efforts of several charity partners, such as the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Reaching for the Cure, the Tustin Public Schools Foundation Dino Dash, the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the City of Laguna Hills Memorial Day Half Marathon, Race for the Rescues, and the American Heart Association Heart Walk. These partnerships are expected to continue.
Along with this acquisition, Alpha also purchased the Big George Triathlon in Lake George, NY. The Alpha Win Lake George Triathlon registration is now open. As the future of the pandemic becomes clearer, Alpha will start to open registration for Renegade Racing events. As these events restart, Alpha Win will ensure that they feature robust safety protocols until the effects of the current pandemic are fully dissipated. Alpha Win is one of the few companies nationally that was permitted to conduct an in-person running event, the Omaha Marathon, in 2020. That multi-distance race took place on September 20, 2020 and was hailed as both a safe and enjoyable experience as it hosted runners from 46 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Alpha Win is the successor organization of HITS Endurance, which itself was a division of HITS, LLC. Alpha Win has been organizing endurance events under the HITS Endurance name since 2011. HITS, LLC is a multi-faceted company with more than 40 years’ experience in event production. Prior to 2011, its sole focus was on equestrian events that continue to take place all across the country. It is a global leader in equestrian sports and the largest producer of hunter jumper horse shows in the country. HITS, LLC is headquartered in upstate New York in the Village of Saugerties.
