Best Damn Race ®

is a running series created for runners by runners. Our goal is to provide a big race experience at a local race price. It doesn’t matter if you are an elite runner, first timer, walker, or using a baby jogger, we want you to have the best DAMN race experience.

Our unique registration process allows all participants the opportunity to register for low prices on a first come, first served basis. This gives all athletes an opportunity to race regardless of income level. For example, our 5K starts out with the price of $15 and stays at that price for the first 200 who register.

Our philosophy is “RUN, EAT, DRINK, PARTY”

We pride ourselves on spoiling our athletes. Every race entry includes: race shirt, finisher medal, bib, goodie bag, free food, free beer, and more! It doesn’t matter if it was your first 5K or your 10th Half Marathon, the post race party will be a celebration of you and your fellow athletes!

Thank you for running Best Damn Race!
