An important part of promoting your race is making sure that it is listed in online race calendars. As a customer of Granite State Race Services you will automatically be listed on our events calendar, and will also have your own event landing page that will come up in search results for your race. Below are a few others that you should make sure to use. Search them first to see if your race is already listed, and if not use their methods of getting it listed. Some are easier than others.
Also don't ignore non-race event calendars. Local media sites (print, radio, TV), local government sites, public libraries and many specialty event listing sites get a lot of traffic from residents of your area. Just goggle your town/city name with "event calendar" and see what comes up.
