Company History

Ken Long & Associates is owned and operated by Ruth and Ken Long of Greenwood, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis.

Ken & Ruth have been in business for themselves since 1978, when they opened a specialty running store (The Runners Forum) which is still going strong, under leadership of a former employee of the store.

In 1985, Ken & Ruth sold The Runners Forum to devote their complete time and knowledge to event management.

Ken & Ruth have personally participated in many events over the last 38 years.

KLA and our team of knowledgeable and trained professionals are dedicated to provide you, the event(s), the City, and the Participants something to be proud of.

Besides the long time experience and knowledge, KLA’s customer service is the cornerstone of the Company.

Ken Long & Associates has been utilizing the disposable chip, attached to the BIB number for 4-plus years, and stays current of all new products related to our Company.

The KLA name on an event is recognized among city departments, sponsors, charities and participating runners and walkers as one providing excellent standards.
