What are the Different Types of Running Events?
The most common types of running events are, of course, races. There are many different kinds of races to suit different running ability levels and different goals;
for instance, marathons and ultra-marathons are very long and challenging runs, but a shorter race such as a 5K or 10K can be a good place to start. The distance run is only part of each running event; generally, running events are associated with a particular group or charity.
Many running events encourage runners to develop teams and to raise money for certain charities. Runners can then run together during the race if they choose, and the individual sponsors who donated money to the runners have the satisfaction of helping a charity as well as helping their friends participate in a race.
