About Us


BibRave is a running community that connects runners with the best races!

It's the place to research races you’re considering signing up for, and a place to leave feedback on races you’ve completed.

BibRave is also a way for races and running brands to connect with socially savvy runners - through our popular weekly Twitter chat, #BibChat, and our large ambassador network - BibRave Pros.


We are Tim and Jessica Murphy, founders of BibRave! We both completed our first marathons (Chicago!) in 2009. Tim qualified and was training for Boston in 2011, so Jessica decided to do a spring race that year too. She looked everywhere for spring marathons but couldn't find a definitive place to see which one was going to provide the best race experience (good crowds, support, course, etc.).

After months training in the brutal winter, a $100+ entry fee, airfare and hotel costs, Jessica ended up with a very poor race experience. Several years of racing later, we knew we needed a community to talk about our experiences and learn from others. Tim had launched websites in the past, and Jess works in digital media, so we decided to pool our knowledge and resources together to launch BibRave!

We hope you find it’s a useful resource, and we’d love to hear from you on what you love (or hate!) about the site! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on the latest race reviews.
