  1. I do local 5K race directories all the time. I do them by town and around the holidays I will pull together a list like you did. I didn’t this year though, but people checked out last year’s listing.
    It’s surprising how many races are not on the big web sites. Some are small local races that need this type of support and could use an extra 10-20 runners to sign up.
