Review Race

Want to review a race you ran? That's great! We were hoping to find a few runners like you! Here’s what we are looking for in a race review:

  • Be relevant, informative, useful, and engaging. Imagine that you are interested in running this race. What information would you need to make the decision to run (or not run) this race?
  • Be succinct. Online attention spans are short. For most reviews, the ideal length is 750 to 1000 words.
  • Think magazine-style. We're setting the bar a bit high, but ask yourself if your review is good enough to appear in your favorite running mag?
  • Be objective. Judge a race on its merits relative to others you have run, and try to consider what the race wants to be.
  • Tell us about the race, not your race goals, unless they are relevant For instance, if a race advertises itself as a fast flat BQ and it is not, that is something we want to see in a review. If a race advertises itself as a smaller intimate race and you were disappointed in the lack of pomp, that’s not really fair.
  • The review should cover pre-race logistics, packet pick-up, getting to the race, the race itself, and post-race.
  • Don’t rant. Criticism should be thoughtful and measured.
  • Proofread. Proofread. Proofread.

Please note that we reserve the right to reject a submission if it does not meet these guidelines or for any other reason that we determine.
