Los Angeles, CA (February 4, 2020) — RaceRaves, LLC has agreed to acquire key assets from Race Advisors, after the latter’s decision to discontinue operations last month. Founded in 2017, Race Advisors served diverse athletes across a wide range of endurance events. The two parties are implementing a transition plan to welcome Race Advisors members to the RaceRaves community. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“I’m beyond proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past three years to build a robust race reviews site that helped runners and race directors alike make more informed choices,” said Lauren Brueckner, founder of Race Advisors. “And while the decision to close up shop was a difficult one, we’re thrilled to be able to transition our members to RaceRaves — as the leader in the space, they were clearly the best destination for our members, and we’re confident they’ll continue to serve our community at a high level.”

The feeling is mutual, says RaceRaves Co-founder Mike Sohaskey. “We have great admiration and respect for what Lauren and her team built at Race Advisors, and we’re excited to welcome their passionate community of runners and endurance athletes to RaceRaves. We look forward to their valuable contributions as we continue to help athletes of all levels discover the best running events across the US and around the world.”
