Other Recommended Events
We recognize that there are many cool running events out there besides the ones we ourselves put on, and we are happy to recommend them here provided that they don’t conflict with SRC events and meet at least some of the following criteria:

  • Well-liked by SRC members
  • Sponsor an SRC event or donate some event proceeds to SRC
  • Provide a link to on your event’s website (a short-lived Facebook, Twitter, or blog post isn’t sufficient!)
  • Distribute SRC membership/event flyers
  • Provide volunteers for SRC events or trail work parties.

To discuss possible partnerships between your event and the SRC, please contact the Secretary.
