Women’s Races 2011

We wanted to make it easier for you to plot out your 2011 race calendar so we compiled this list of women’s races. If you’ve done a bunch of women’s-only races, like we have, you already know the awesome tribe-vibe you get at them. If you haven’t run a leave-the-fellows-behind race, this is your year to do one. Trust us.

We also have the list on a Google map here— if you want to search by location. Many, many happy miles, RLAM’ers!
