If you’re going to run in a race, it might as well be in a beautiful, fun, travel-worthy destination. Some races are worth running for, especially if you get a mini vacation out of it.


Day of the Dead Series

Oct. 31–Nov. 3, this epic race is a choose-your-own adventure of running fun through Las Cruces, New Mexico. Check out local Day of the Dead events while you’re in the neighborhood, and keep the creepy fun going all weekend.


Catalina Island Triathlon & Duathlon

Jump into high gear and get to Avon, Catalina Island, off the coast of California for the Nov. 2 race, or plan ahead for next year — either way, this is one venue worth trekking to. See the stunning island by swimming, biking and running its iconic landscape and earn a long weekend of relaxation and leisurely boat rides.


Golden Gate Half Marathon

Whether you opt for the 13.1-mile race or the classic 5k, you’re still getting picturesque views of San Francisco by way of the Golden Gate Bridge. Taking place Nov. 3, runners cross the iconic bridge into the City by the Bay and end with unbeatable vistas throughout and perks at the finish.

How to Eat Like a Local with OodyMate

Truly immersing yourself in a foreign culture is one of the main reasons to travel, whether you’re learning a local dance or sipping wine with a vineyard owner in Italy. Traveling outside your comfort zone also involves sampling local cuisine, but if you’re visiting a major city like Rome or Paris, eating like a local usually means stepping far out of the city center, where eateries tend to cater to unadventurous tourists. But finding a worthy eatery can hog hours of your trip time as you pore over listings on TripAdvisor or Yelp.
