BibRave 100 FAQ

  1. What is The BibRave 100?
    The BibRave 100 is THE definitive List of the Best Races in America. It will be comprised of the Top 20 Marathons, Top 20 Half Marathons, and the Top 25 races 10 miles or shorter. The BibRave 100 will also feature three non-distance categories, including the Top 10 Themed Races, the Top 10 Races with the Best Medals/Swag, and the Top 10 Race Weekend Experiences. Rounding out the list are the Green Lion Award recipients, the top five races that have integrated sustainable practices into their race operations to reduce the carbon footprint of their event.
  2. How do races make the list?
    The first step is the nomination process which is open from July 8th through August 1st. Once the nomination period is complete, we will have a public vote starting August 12th and ending September 2nd to determine the best races in America!
  3. Who can nominate a race?
    Anyone! Just complete the Race Nomination Form.
  4. How many races can I nominate?
    You can nominate as many races as you want, as long as you think they deserve to be one of the best races in America!
  5. During the voting phase, how many times can I vote?
    Only one vote per email address, per category is allowed.
  6. Why isn’t my race distance one of the categories?
    Gah, this was a tough one for us, but for this first version of the list we had to go with the most popular distances. In the future we could definitely see building this out to include more categories with more race distances.
  7. Wait. Wait. Wait. My race isn’t on the list!! Why? WHY!
    If your race isn’t on the list, it’s because not enough people nominated it for consideration. ☹ But don’t worry! We’ll be back next year, and now that you know you can rally the troops to nominate and vote for your race then.
