Race Directors

The 2017 Race & Event Calendar is filling up!

Listings for fitness events within Michiana are free.

In return, RPM asks that when possible, a listed race will include issues in their race packets or have them out at their event.

The Race & Event calendar is not only a resource to participants, but also to race directors and those planning new events, with a goal to help avoid overlapping of events that would draw a similar participant group.
