Running isn’t cheap, despite what non-runners think. After you’ve bought your shoes & clothes or maybe that fancy watch, you want to test your training in a race. Sometimes runners like to sign up for several races leading up to their big race. So it can quickly become a big expense.
But there are several ways to save money on race registrations if you know where to look…
Tips For Saving Money on Race Registrations:
-Follow your favorite race on social media. Sometimes they’ll promote the race for a select period of time with discount code. National Running Day is a great day to find discount codes.
-Sign up early. Most races have tiered race registration prices. The later you register, the more expensive it becomes.
-Follow bloggers who run. Many bloggers help promote races by blogging for them. Sometimes bloggers offer a special discount code that’s exclusive for their readers.
-Skip the shirt. Sometimes you can score a cheaper price on a race if you opt out of the race shirt. I’ve only seen this a few times, but I’d pick it every time!
-Repeat a race. Some races offer discounts for returning runners.
It does take a little work to save money on races, but it can add up over time. So next time you are about to register for a race, do a little research and hopefully your wallet will thank you!
