Welcome to a new year of the Races on our Radar series, where we report on cool and/or low-cost races, group runs, price and registration deadlines, and other things we think you should know about it.
We would like to you hear from you, too. If you’re in the know on a race that you think others need to check out, be sure to let us know with our contact form. Tell us what you love about it and be sure to include a link.

Also this Saturday is the Vortex Half Marathon and 10k at Milo McIver State Park. Sign up online for the 10k for just $30 or the half for $50. (Day of race registration bumps up $15 for each.)
