Community Running Calendar

We try to be accurate, but race details can change, and it’s possible we can make a mistake too – always visit the race’s website for the most complete and accurate race information. 

If you would like to add a local running event to the calendar, please SUBMIT the event information.  Allow up to one week for the review process.

The listing on this website of any non-LRC race event is provided solely as a service so that you are aware of area races. Listing the race in no way constitutes an endorsement or approval of the listed event, nor does it indicate LRC’s support for any specific charity or organization. You should independently evaluate the running event to decide if you want to participate.
