CARA Circuit: This is the Week (Updated)

QUICK UPDATE ON TUESDAY, NOV. 25: CARA has sent out a survey to its members asking them to vote on their favorite races. This is to determine which races will be on the new Runners' Choice Race Series, which will replace the CARA Competitive Circuit. Deadline for voting (members only) is Dec. 5. Comments???

(Previous post) The future of the CARA Circuit is on many minds, including those of runners and race directors. We should get a hint of what is to unfold before this week is out. Undoubtedly, the landscape will be changing. Whatever happens, I just want it to happen soon. Planning a CARA Circuit race such as the 4 on the 4th (in my case) or others does not happen overnight, particularly in this economy. Runners planning their racing seasons around marathons, triathlons etc. need to know the Circuit schedule. Everyone needs to know what's going on very soon. Stay tuned.

I was surprised they went that route and I really hope it doesn't turn into a bunch of races that have thousands of people in them...I hate those. I wonder how long it will take them to compile all the data and give us a Circuit list.

It's definitely a sea change. It will be interesting to see who takes the time to vote. Some great races may find themselves off the Circuit next year. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
