The BibRave 100 Voting Now Open
August 21, 2019
Voters will decide the top five Marathons, Half Marathons, and Races 10 Miles or Less
Portland, OR – BibRave, the running industry leader in grassroots digital marketing, recently announced the second annual publication of The BibRave 100: A Definitive List of the Best Races in America. With the nomination period now closed, a public runner vote is open to decide the top races in each distance (Marathon, Half-Marathon, and Races 10 Miles or Less).
Voting is open to the public until September 2, 2019 at www.thebibrave100.com, where anyone can vote from among the nominated finalists (one vote per distance category). Races are encouraged to rally their communities via email and social media to vote for their event.
BibRave is again partnering with The Running Event, North America’s largest specialty running conference and trade show, inviting all races who make The BibRave 100 to attend the conference and be recognized at an awards luncheon on Wednesday, December 4. The BibRave 100 is also proud to welcome returning sponsors – MYLAPS Sports Timing and Recover Brands.
“The BibRave 100 is a great way for runners to learn more about races that deserve a place on their race calendars,” said Tim Murphy, Co-Founder of BibRave. “As travel and “racecations” continue to trend upward, and as more races come online, we’re happy to curate and provide an easy-to-reference list of the best races in America.”
In addition to featuring the best Marathons, Half Marathons, and Races 10 Miles or Less, The BibRave 100 will include three non-ranked top-10 lists of popular categories: Best Themed Races, Best Medals and/or Swag, and Best Race Weekend Experiences. Finally, the list will recognize three “Innovators in Sustainability” with the second annual presentation of The Green Lion Award, sponsored by Recover Brands. For more information on dates and how the list will be created, see BibRave’s FAQ section for more details.
BibRave works with races and brands to drive runner engagement and, ultimately, generate more sales and registrations. Through their large and highly-vetted network of running bloggers (BibRave Pros), their popular Twitter event (#BibChat), and their new Podcast (The BibRave Podcast) BibRave helps endurance brands and races go beyond simple advertising and truly connect with more runners.
The company’s consumer-facing product is a race review site where runners can learn about a race before signing up, and leave feedback after the event. The company launched in late 2013 in the Midwest and is now based in Portland, Oregon.
