The Mission of the Road Race Series

Who can participate?

Everyone! The Hermes Sports & Events Road Race Series is open to runners of all ages and abilities. This is a fun way to track your individual performance and progress throughout the year and compete against others in the Series. High school and college athletes are encouraged to participate but it is your responsibility to clarify all eligibility requirements with your organization. Hermes Sports & Events assumes no responsibility for eligibility infractions or problems that may arise from an athlete's participation in the Road Race Series.
