My BEST Run Race Scouts

We are signing up Race Scouts around the world. Our scouts will help us identify the best races in the world. Our scouts may prefer small races, while others feel that a best race needs thousands of runners. Some only like trail races and others only like road races. In all cases, they will put their name on reputation on the line with their race picks. All will pick at least 10 and no more than 100. To qualify you have to have run or been involved with at least 100 races and feel you are qualified to judge races. There is no compensation, but it comes with logs of bragging rights. Use the contact us form.
