Sports - Runs - by Month

(mainly 5K, 10K, half/full marathon)

! Preliminary ! More links may be added.

< Go to Home page. >

The runs shown here are all over the U.S. --- and the world. The runs are grouped by month in which they have been held. Each run has a web-link to more information about the run --- and each run is 'tagged' with a specific date for a specific year, to indicate the typical time of month for the run (early, mid, late).

This organization by date, rather than state/region/country, is intended to accomodate a runner who is prepared for a run in a particular time frame, and is willing to travel --- maybe halfway around the world --- to get to a desired run.

Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, and Williamsburg are located. This
peninsula is the "northside" of "Hampton Roads", near the mouth of the James River, on the north side.)

The Southside includes the cities of Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake,
Suffolk, and Smithfield.)

Lists of Running CLUBS, by state/country - at runningnetwork.com

the country/world BY DATE, you can look at running clubs in areas of
interest and see what runs they have in a particular time frame.
