Race List



Races are a great way to set goals.  Many companies offer 5 km races, 8 km races, 10 km races, 1/2 marathon races and more.  I like to register for several of these each year and I especially like it when I can take home a piece of my accomplishment via a medal.  This is not something I just wanted to do for only one year so I sat down for hours to research the various running races from Whistler to Seattle and, in some cases, beyond.  I came up with a list of races which I divided into the months that they are usually offered.  For those looking for races, you may find this list of races helpful.  You can look up the races offered in a month and their distance and plan your training accordingly.  The ones on this list include swag which is why I chose them 😉
