As we move along on these weekly race round-ups, you might notice that more races from 2018 are being covered. Most races require participants to register weeks or months ahead of time for logistic reasons. So, even if the race is only in 2018, do attempt to sign up for them as soon as you can to avoid a case of an early closure of registration. You might also be able to catch early bird prices which will allow you to save a sizeable amount of money. That said; do read on to find out if I’ve covered the ideal race for you!
