Sacramento Super 

November 3rd – Sacramento

Van Vleck Ranch is the closest thing Reebok Spartan Race has on its calendar to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. If the weather remains dry, you will be confronted with an arduous, rolling landscape that goes as far as the eye can see. Should it rain, you will be presented with one of the most technical terrains you could hope to encounter — it will become slippery and the slopes will become a battle for even the most seasoned racer.

 

Little Apple Marathon Presented By AIB International

November 3rd – Manhattan, KS

Manhattan’s First EVER Marathon! November 3, 2018 will mark the first ever Marathon in Manhattan, KS. It will take place at the Tuttle Creek State Park area. The marathon will be 4 loops around the park area. There will also be Half Marathon, 5K and Marathon relay options.

 

43rd Annual 3TV Phoenix 10K and Half Marathon

November 4th –  Phoenix, AZ

This is the race that started it all, bringing the City of Phoenix to it’s feet back in 1976. Founded by Dr. Art Mollen, his vision brought our growing, vibrant city together with a sport still in its infancy. It set the charge used to ignite the running boom in Arizona.​​ Over the years, the race has hosted Olympic Gold medalists, American record holders and more first time race participants than any other event in the southwestern United States. Won’t you join us to be part of this Valley classic?

 

2018 Seacoast Half Marathon

November 11th – Portsmouth, NH

The Seacoast Half has a scenic course that includes salt marsh, ocean views, a historic village, and Portsmouth Harbor. There are men’s and women’s long-sleeve tech shirts for all registered racers, finisher’s medals, and plenty of post-race eats. All of the revenue from the 2018 Seacoast Half Marathon, after race expenses, goes directly to this year’s non-profit beneficiary, The Birchtree Center.

Clarkston State Bank Back Roads Half Marathon, 10k Run/Walk and 5k Run/Walk continues to be an exciting and challenging race at Independence Oaks Park. Please join us for a back roads run and a great post-race party!

2018 Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon

November 25th – Seattle, WA

This Original Hometown Marathon is on a beautiful course with rolling hilly sections and scenic views of downtown Seattle and Lake Washington. From its humble beginnings in 1970 when a group of friends from the University of Washington decided to hold their own marathon, the Seattle Marathon Family of Events has grown into one of the largest combination marathon/half marathon in the Pacific Northwest and one of the top ten largest in the U.S. That first marathon 48 years ago sported 38 runners. This year, 10,000 participants are expected for the marathon and half marathon walking and running events. Join us Thanksgiving Weekend for a great destination marathon on a beautiful course with rolling hilly sections and scenic views of downtown Seattle and Lake Washington.
