Get your race on the web already!

So do I just list all races that I can find? No. There's getting to be so many during the summer months, that it's difficult to list them all. So how does a race director get a fancy-dancy link on the moderately-famous Two R's blog? Well, try getting a website up. I don't list any races where runners have to call, or e-mail, or send a piegon out to figure out how to sign up. Come on, it's 2008, put up a website. Second, I don't list races that take more than 3 or 4 clicks to get to the information. This causes some problems for a few city-run races, as they sometimes don't update the front page often and/or ever, so you have to go to "events", then "cowpie festival", then "races", then...well, you get the picture.

But I do check all my links and make sure they send you somewhere you want to go, unlike a few running sites I could mention. Hope it helps you find a great run.
