Race The States

Race The States
Recently after dragging my parents to 3 extra states while we were in Tennessee and Kentucky, I decided my goal to visit all 50 states would be more fun if I did a race in every state. I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to be a half marathon or tri, so I decided any distance run or triathlon would count and so Race The States was born. SO since I have quite some states to cover, what are your favorite, must-do, can’t-miss races?
