It is hard to know in advance if the race you are about to enter is a good one. This is why we have started this new service. What makes a good race? We think most runners want to have a fun memorable experience. It is important the course is accurate and the finish time is correct. It is most imporant the organizers do what they say they are going to deliver...like awards, aid stations, gift bags, etc. Each of these Races were first recommended by a runner. In most cases, a runner who has run the race. Then we looked at additional information to make the final decision. These are road races that put their runners as their top priority. If your favorite race did not make our list, click the "Nominate A Race" button and tell us why you think it should make our list.
