A new year is filled with hope and promise, but when considering race options, the possibilities can seem overwhelming, especially if you are willing to travel.
As you begin the process of deciding which race to target for 2013, here is a list of considerations to keep in mind. They are in no particular order, but you can customize the list by arranging them in order from most important to least, and indicate your preferred circumstances for each one.
– Number of participants
– Crowd support
– Rural or urban course
– Flat or rolling course
– Local or destination race
– Music on course
– Expected temperature and weather
Once you’ve got these things ordered, the number of race options should shrink to a manageable few.
