Races in Places* is an informal collective of likeminded people who share a passion for discovering the world through running. Ranging from back-of-the-packers to seeded runners, we share a passion for discovering new places and meeting new people through the commonality of running. Through Races in Places, runners from around the world can exchange thoughts, experiences and resources relating to running in their part of the world. It is the goal of Races in Place to spread goodwill and global awareness through the shared love of running.

The Races in Places (RiP) blog is designed to be an interactive resource for runners looking for inspiration and information on running in new destinations. While topics concerning training and nutrition will not be avoided, this blog will focus more on the peripherals of running, including the comradery and overall experience of running, especially as it relates to different parts of the world. Regular columns will include:

  • Passport to Run A detailed account of how to navigate running in various large and small cities around the world.
  • Passport to Race A detailed account of various races around the world.
  • BackTrack A place to share your favorite, or worst, racing experiences.
  • Faces in Places A profiling of different runners from around the globe.
  • Mixtape Runners can share their favorite playlist to run to.
  • Race Fuel A recipe swap of favorite pre- or post- race meals & snacks.
  • Around the Waterstop An informal list of links or news bites relating to running.
  • Race Expo A highlighting and discussion of various pieces of running gear.

The RiP blog is meant to be interactive and will rely on the submissions of its readers. Our goal is to share thoughts and information from multiple viewpoints, not just that of the administrator.
