How to look for, and find a race of any distance

Having decided to make this blog about more than just me, I will be trying to give more information to the you, the reader, to help you on your own running/fitness journey.  Here's a good start.  

If you are thinking about trying out a new race, a new distance, or trying to find something fresh on the racing scene, here are some sites for you to use to locate races and find out the ins and outs of events all around the country.


Running in the USA
     This is a great site that covers races of all lengths, as well as duathlons, Triathlons, and Ultras.  You can search by distance, state, etc.  


MarathonGuide
     The namesake says it all.  It is information, a calendar, race results, etc. for marathon distance races around the country and the globe.


HalfMarathon.net
     This is the half marathon version of the site above.  Articles and first timer information also help you on the road to racing 13.1 miles.

Active
     Active, in general, is a great site for all those Active.  It has tons of articles on all different sports, as well and a race calendar.  


When all else fails, in your search for a race, check out/google running clubs in your city, town, area.  They often have calendars of local races, sponsored races in the area, etc.
