Per Eric Benevides – as for the races that were selected, they were picked because …

A. they have truly outstanding post-race festivities (beer, food, etc.).
B. they were attended by 20 or more RIRR runners in 2019.
C. a few of the race directors were more than generous enough to donate race entries to our banquet’s raffle.
D. the Grand Prix director wanted some in his part of the state.
E. the Grand Prix director decided to “go retro” and pick a couple of half marathons that once graced this schedule many moons ago.
