7 Great Races to Run at Least Once in Your Lifetime ...


As a marathon runner, I know there are so many great races to run at least once in your lifetime. Some of my listed marathons (26.2 miles) I have run and others are on my “bucket list” of things to do in my life. All of these races can be made into a great vacation as well. And running a destination race is great motivation to rev up your training. So here are 7 great races to run that you won’t regret.

1. NYC Marathon

The NYC Marathon is the first on my list because I consider this one of the best races to run. NYC Marathon is an amazing race through the 5 Boroughs of New York City. It is a fast race with rolling hills, incredible crowd support and an amazing race finish through Central Park. I have run this race six times already and I do not plan on stopping anytime soon for a reason! The NYC Marathon is an amazing race! If you are traveling here you can plan a few days in Manhattan visiting museums, plays, shopping and having fine dining experiences!
