11 Remarkable Races You Need to Run Before You Die

The best running races in the world all share a few key elements: an exceptional course, extremely enthusiastic spectators, outstanding organization and, perhaps the most important factor of all for many runners, a great challenge to conquer. That challenge might present itself in the form of a traditional marathon, a multi-day road race event, a trek though one of the Earth’s most unforgiving terrains or a grueling course lined with an unthinkable amount of obstacles.

Those are just a few of the defining characteristics of some of the most remarkable road races in the world. 

Whether you’ve run more marathons than you can count on two hands and are looking for your next exciting race endeavor, or you're new to the sport and are on the hunt for some race inspiration, here’s a look at some truly one-of-a-kind courses that definitely deserve a spot on your must-run bucket list.
