"As a race announcer at local runs, triathlons all the way up to international and Olympic events that are televised live, I know how much preparation goes into making the role look easy". I have been fortunate enough to work with Frances Turk over the years and have found her style, energy and passion for motivating people to be world-class. "If your looking for a great emcee and finishing line/awards presenter seriously consider giving Frances Turk a call"

"I met Frances at the Chocolate Half Marathon as she was the race announcer. The excitement she generated and her quick wit was captivating. All the athletes fed off her energy and she turned this event into an amazing experience. Frances definitely raises the bar for any event she attends. In one word to describe her she is AMAZING."

"Over the last fifteen years our association with Frances has shown to be a highly motivated and dedicated individual. Her warmth, charm and enthusiasm never falter, despite a long day of announcing. We can count on her to take the initiative to keep the athletes informed whether it is race related or announcing any lost and found. She uses her knowledge and understanding of the sport of Triathlon to constantly inform and encourage the participants.
With Frances as our communication liaison, there is never a dull moment. She makes sure that the music is fun and lively and the facts announced are precise, clear and timely. She not only manages to identify almost all the athletes at the finish by name but does so with accuracy.
Knowing that we have such a knowledgeable professional at the helm of our athletes' communication core makes for a smooth orderly and memorable event."
