All races are virtual. It is possible that races within the West of the River Series will include an in-person option. Registration is through RunSignUp. Members of clubs that use RSU for their membership usually have a discount automatically applied at check-out for themselves and anyone else whose registration the process and pay.
Your race fee nets you more than a medal. Typically, there is some sort of race food to fit the theme and opportunities to Earn Extras through Points Posts in our Facebook group page, Obatron Fitness Conversation Spacce, and other avenues. Points turn into guaranteed goodies and chances to win premier tier prizes from us and our sponsors.
All series allow racers to choose one, some, or all races. Teams are offered with some events. Also visit obatron.com
