  3. Wanted: The best half marathon in every U.S. state!

Welcome to our RaceRaves “Best of the U.S.” Half Marathons poll! As the premier resource to help runners find the best races, we’re building the go-to list of the top half marathons in each of the 50 states, as voted on by those who know best — YOU.

Our voting ended Sunday, Oct 13, and we announced our best half marathon winners in mid-November!

Road Runner Sports is the world’s largest running and walking store, with a commitment to you and making all your fitness dreams come to life.

Train Like a Mother Club is for all female athletes, whether you’re a beginning runner, an intermediate triathlete or a twenty-time marathoner. With expert, accessible coaching; a range of comprehensive, effective training programs; and support + community in spades, your training — and race — will be strong, solid and fulfilling.

HOW IT WORKS: To qualify for and be automatically entered into our random drawing, you must submit your vote between Sept 12 and Oct 13, 2019. Voting closes at 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, October 13. One entry per person with valid email address (see below).

Each eligible entry submitted (must vote for at least one state to be eligible) will automatically double as an entry into our random drawing to win one of the following:

  • RAVE PRIZE (1): Complete running kit from Road Runner Sports consisting of the winner’s choice of a hat, top, bottom, and any pair of shoes
  • SECOND PRIZE (1): Train Like a Mother Club training program (choose from traditional or heart rate programs, a $55–$160 value; may be transferred to a friend or family member)

Each winner will also receive a RaceRaves race hat from Headsweats®.

On or around October 15, 2019, RaceRaves will select the prize winners and notify them by email. If a winner fails to respond and claim their prize by 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, October 27, 2019, then another winner will be randomly chosen and secure all the glory and spoils therein.

An email address is required to ensure only one entry per person and to notify our winners at the end of the voting. Only valid (i.e. legitimate, non-temporary) email addresses will have their votes counted and be entered in the giveaway. By submitting your email address you agree to receive periodic emails (including our monthly “Off to the Races!” newsletter) from RaceRaves and only RaceRaves — you can unsubscribe at any time, and we’ll never share your info with anyone.
