Finding races outside the US (Read 69 times)

    Anyone know a good way to find a race in another country (specifically, France)?  I know runningintheusa and lots of other sites domestically but couldn't find a good site for international races other than marathons.  Would love to run a 5K-10K while over there in a couple weeks.  If I'm really getting greedy, something the weekend of July 20-21 near Avignon.

    2021 Goals:

    • Get past PF issues
    • Get back to racing in the fall (London Marathon)

      I would start by googling 5k/10k races in Avignon and the surrounding areas. You might get lucky and find a race on 20-21 July as those distances are always more frequent than marathons

      5k - 17:53 (4/19)   10k - 37:53 (11/18)   Half - 1:23:18 (4/19)   Full - 2:50:43 (4/19)

        I like this site for international runs. You can dig deeper by distance and region:

          I usually start with the general race calendars (like ahotu), then look for a link to local calendars. I love racing while traveling overseas!

          Here you go. This one wasn't listed in ahotu for 2019, but there was a link...:

            Perfect!   Now I just have to figure out how to register.   Thanks!

              If it is still any relevant, I'm in the UK and use these two platforms a lot:

              1. https://www.runbritain.com/races - UK based races
              2. https://findarace.com - mostly, the UK but also Europe & a few others

              Hope that helps!
