5 Fall Races You Need to Register For



  • Kansas City Marathon (10/15/16): Being headquartered in Olathe, Kansas, we could be a bit biased, but the Kansas City Marathon is a perfect race to look at for fall. The KC Marathon offers multiple event options including a marathon, half marathon, 5k run, team relay and a kids marathon. The relatively flat course takes you through the heart of downtown Kansas City where you can see historic buildings, landmarks and cityscapes. Fall in KC means cooler temperatures, ideal for race day. Check out the race course!

  • Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas (11/12/16): If you’ve ever run a Rock ‘n’ Roll race, you know it’s a party, but Vegas takes it one step further. Instead of a morning start time, this race begins in the evening so the lights of the Vegas strip shine bright! Everything from the medals, which spin and glow in the dark, to the entertainment, Snoop Dogg, you know this race is one of a kind. Experience a race weekend unlike any other by registering for Rock’n’Roll Vegas before it’s too late!
  • Volition America (10/1/16 through 12/3/16): This half-marathon and 5k race series was created by Major Dan Rooney, USAFR- F-16 Fighter Pilot and founder of the Folder of Honor Foundation. Running the Volition America races means you’re helping to raise funds to help support families of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers. Register for Clermont, FL, on October 1, Charlotte, NC, on October 8 or Pensacola, FL, on December 3rd.
  • Virtual Race: A virtual race is a race you can participate in, no matter your location. Use the treadmill or run outside at any pace you want! Virtual Strides is a company that hosts various virtual races featuring different charities each month. With a quick search you can find hundreds of virtual races to run in for fun, for a good cause and for the bling.
  • Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles (10/30/16) Celebrate the World’s Largest Halloween Half Marathon at RNR LA! Dress up in your favorite costume and run one of the last tour stops before the holiday season. Set in sunny California, with October temperatures in the 70s, it’s a runner’s dream.
