If you viewed my finish times from every race I've ever run, you would think my running Sybill had come out.
Those times are all over the place. But I think most recreational runners can appreciate the fact that some races are for racing,
some are for fun
and some are for just outright shenangians.
If you are a slower runner or someone who exclusively walks half marathons. I was told about a great resource! The website 100 Half Marathons Club looks like a fun thing in itself, but they have a list of half marathons that are time friendly - they have longer course time limits and a reputation for keeping course resources open until the last runner / walker has finished!
This is a free site that anyone can access, and it includes races in the US and Canada. There's also a submission form for people to add races, so if you have a favorite race that is back-of-the-pack friendly and it's not on the list, help your fellow racers out and submit it!
Check out the list, grab your BRF's and add to your race calendar!
