That being said, the Revlon Run for Women (held in NYC and L.A.) did take second place with 31,120 finishers in L.A. and 26,000 in New York. The largest race is the Race for the Cure: D.C., which, as you clever folks probably already figured out, takes place in Washington D.C.
Rounding out the top five are the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run, held in several Florida cities, the Run to Feed the Hungry in Sacramento, California, and the St. Luke's Women's Fitness Celebration, all with more than 10,000 finishers. Yep, even in Boise.
See? You don't have to do a full marathon or complete any qualifiers to take part in a major running event. You just have to find the right race for you.
Which do you prefer; small or large races? Let us know in the comments!
