Best Damn Race is a running series created for runners by runners. Their goal is to provide a big race experience at a local race price. It doesn’t matter if you are an elite runner, first timer, walker, or using a baby jogger, they want you to have the best DAMN race experience. As an ambassador for this series I can honestly tell you that they deliver the best DAMN race!
Their unique registration process allows all participants the opportunity to register for low prices on a first come, first served basis. This gives all athletes an opportunity to race regardless of income level. For example, the 5K starts out with the price of $15 and stays at that price for the first 200 who register. Why pay $75 for a 5K when you can run the Best Damn 5K for as little as $15 or as much as $40?
If you’ve been reading MOTM for more than 5 minutes you’d know that I’ve been an ambassador for the Best Damn Race series since the beginning and the races just keep getting better. They are up to 4 cities and 5 events. They have 5k, 10k, Challenge, and 1/2 marathon options at each locations along with a Leftover 5k in Safety Harbor where you have the opportunity to earn medals from past events. How fun is that?
Starting in February you have 4 opportunities to enjoy Best Damn Race in three different states – Florida, Louisiana, and Georgia.
Starting in 2020 my favorite BDR location is moving to TWO DAYS! How cool is that? Now instead of just one day of fun and races there are now 2! With the 5k and 10k distances on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday there are five options for how you can participate. The 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Double Challenge (5k and 10k), and the Triple Challenge (all three races). Now you’ve got even more reasons to head to Safety Harbor for the weekend!

*Disclosure: Yup, I’m still a BDR ambassador which gets me some swag and free race entries. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. I’d be telling you about this race even if I wasn’t an ambassador.
