IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO RUN A SPECIFIC RACE AND WANT OPINIONS AND PERSPECTIVE about that event which is not advertising hype, there’s a service that might help you. BibRave posts reviews and other feedback about races on its company’s public-interfacing website so that would-be participants can learn more about a race before registering; runners can leave feedback after their race experiences as well. Runners that are “motivated, active, social, vocal, and enthusiastic” racers are recruited to become ‘ambassadors’ for the company. Called BibRave Pros, they receive race-specific perks for their efforts to “tell the world which races are the best and why”. The company, headquartered in Portland Oregon, was launched in late 2013.
A few small races I searched each had one review; several others were not yet in their system. Like all sites that rely on voluntary submissions it will take some time to populate the database with information. It seems like it has the potential to be tremendously helpful to runners, so the link will be posted on the RESOURCES page. What do you think about it?
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
