It's a Great Time to be a Runner!


Go ahead and count the number of races on the list below. Go ahead...I'll wait.

That's right, there are 34 races! In one week! Just in the NW!

It's a great time to run. Old, established races are full, and new races are forming every week.

Enjoy it now, because there's no rule that it has to last. As the huge swell of runners out there right now gets older and starts to drop out of the sport, will there be large enough numbers of younger runners to take their place? We'll see.

Let's race!
