About Running in the USA

What We Are

Running in the USA is a directory of links to running and multisport races and clubs. We only show in our directory, what we can prove that we know. We prove what we know by providing links to the race or club information. We are not associated with the races in our directory. We will only include in our directory what we can find reasonable proof of online somewhere.

Who We Are

We are Bill and Mary Flaws (husband and wife) and we live in Waukesha, WI. Mary is an avid runner, and Bill is sane. Mary does the website programming. Bill takes the pictures that are featured on the home page. We work many many many many hours scouring the internet, maintaining the information in the directories. This is our full-time life work. We don't have other jobs. We barely do much else besides maintain this website. It is our life, and we love it.
