Why should you sign up
for a Race178 event?
- We are an experienced and professional production company. We started putting on races in 2005 with the 1st annual Reno-Tahoe Odyssey.
- We make the effort and bear the expense of having plenty of volunteers and police and traffic control equipment so that the event is safe and well supported for the participants.
- We are all about benefiting the local community. Because we are locals. We live in Reno. We work in Reno. We have a vested interest in making the Reno-Tahoe region a better place.
- Our races showcase different parts of the Reno-Tahoe area - because we are proud of where we live and we want to show it off. Each course is customized so you see interesting landmarks and scenic locations.
- We work with local vendors and local sponsors which helps spur the local economy.

Race178 Point Series
The Race178 Point Series involves 4 of our events: the Leprechaun Race, the Reno 10 Miler (individuals only, not relays), the Journal Jog and the Run with the Girls (10K only). This is an age group competition with specific age groups for the Point Series. The top 9 places in each age group in each event will earn points. After the Run with the Girls if you finish in the top 3 of your age group for the Point Series, you score a cool pilsner glass!

For 2017, we are challenging you a bit more because we know you can do it. Everyone who participates in the Leprechaun Race, Reno 10 Miler (individual or relay), Journal Jog and Run with the Girls (5K or 10K) will earn a special piece of swag: a medal with the logos of all four of these races. We will hand out the 4-race medals at the conclusion of the Run with the Girls. This is one more reason to participate in these 4 fun events.
