We have launched a mobile race directory site.  You can now browse for races on your mobile phone.

On the first screen, you click on the name of the state where you want to find a race, on the next screen, you will find categorized drill-down menus.  Once your selected criteria results in 50 races or less, they will be listed.  If the list of matching races is more than 50, you will need to continue selecting choices... It sounds more complicated than it is.

on the first page, click on Massachusetts.  Since there are (as of this minute) 1059 races in Massachusetts, you will need to make another choice... You can either select a month, or a type (marathon, half marathon, 5K, etc.) or within 100 miles of key cities (Boston, Barnstable, Springfield, Worcester).

For this example, lets choose April.  Since April has 89 races, you will still need to narrow your search a bit before the races are listed.

Now select Marathon.  It will list the 1 marathon in Massachusetts in April.

Hope you like it.
Occasionally, there is some blip, and it erroneously says there are 0 races.  We haven't figured out why it does this yet, so bear with us, hit refresh, or try again in a couple minutes.

The 'within 100 miles' option arguably doesn't make a lot of sense for small states, but its there anyway.  It can be useful for large states, so for now, its there for all.  We may tweak that in the future.
