If you are a new runner who has been bitten by the running bug, you may get the urge to challenge yourself by competing in a road race, probably a 5k (3.1 miles) to start. But how does one find a race to run?
Because the New England area is relatively small, you can also search for races within a specified distance from your own zip code. I live on the border of Rhode Island, so I like to search for potential races to run this way.
I also like to search for women-only races, as there’s nothing quite like the camaraderie of females all embarking on the same journey to a common goal – the finish line!
So what are you waiting for? Go sign up for a road race near you!
