50 Races 50 States

I’m slightly overambitious. I guess I don’t like being bored but I also have this strong desire to lie around doing nothing. I work 40 hours a week, run 4 days a week (hopefully), just opened my own Etsy shop and I try to maintain a healthy social life amidst my various hobbies. It should come as no surprise to me that I decided to add yet another goal to my already hefty list: I want to run 50 races 50 states. I want to complete this goal by my 50th birthday. Considering I am only 23, this should be easy to accomplish, right? Well, the Paulding Board of Realtors 5-K was the first race completed for this category outside of Florida. The post about the race is linked above. I should be running races in another 2 states, Washington, DC (what state should I count that as?!?) and Minnesota. I’m excited for this goal and to visit new places! I’m a traveler at heart so this is a great goal for me.

I’ve noticed a few groups that have this as a challenge. All of them are to run a half or full marathon in every state. I have yet to find a group that is just dedicated to running a race in every state, no matter the distance. I don’t want to be tied down to a specific distance. I want to run races because they look fun and exciting, not to meet the required distance.

So I ask you this, does anyone know of groups that are for any distances?
