When you’re perusing the internet for a race to sign up for there are a few things that go into deciding where to throw your money. Things like location, the course, elevation and date tends to matter but what happens when you’re down to 2-3 races that all fit the basic requirements? You look for personal experiences! And that is exactly what this list is for – it’s a compilation of race reports + race recaps that I’ve found interesting, from races I’ve run or races I am personally eyeballing. Enjoy.
