Daphne Kirkwood

event extraordinaire

Not only does Daphne Kirkwood plan events, she has also participated in and excelled at them since 2004! The ‘Daphanator’ enjoys breaking new records and PR’s and the experience that races provide for all involved. After multiple running injuries, rehab required cross-training in the pool and on the bike. She loved swimming and cycling so much that, upon recovery, she tried a multi-sport event, then several more, and was hooked! Multi-sport training provided more balance which allowed her to train and race relatively injury-free. Daphne continues to train and participate while directing her passion and energy towards designing, directing and promoting events that she would also like to participate in! Reach out to Daphne for event support by email at events@idaph.net

Daphne Kirkwood, a veteran multi-sport athlete and seasoned event management professional with 20 years of destination-centered hospitality experience, realized the importance of client-centered event productions, promoting and building excitement about events, and focusing on details to make an event an enjoyable and memorable experience. This culminated in the foundation of iDaph Events, a full-service race management company, in 2011. Understanding further need for community outreach, Daphne created the iDream Athletes Foundation in 2015 to offer instructional, motivational, and financial support for WNC area athletes.

Established in 2011, iDaph Events brings unique events to Western North Carolina. We design, promote and produce memorable cycling, running and multi-sport events that we would also want to experience and participate in. We do this first by creating a large canvas of an event and then zooming in on all the super important details. We not only work on our own event creations, but we also help other community events in our region to grow meaningful and profitable events.
 
Our services include event design and creation, custom-designed marketing plans, social media promotions, on-site and online registration management, live timing/finish line/results, overseeing and implementing event logistics and more! We want every participant to have an unforgettable and enjoyable experience at our events and we go out of our way to make each event tailored for the participants, special and unique.
