All you have to do is rate how important you think the following seven race elements are here and then tweet us your most important race element on Twitter using the #myperfectrace hashtag.

How important do you find the following factors when you decide to enter a race?

  1. Price
  2. Terrain
  3. Distance
  4. Location
  5. Goody bag and medal
  6. The size of the crowd/atmosphere
  7. Supporting a cause close to my heart

Do you have a race which comes close to your perfect race? If so, what is it?

‘My perfect race is one that I win. Alas, I’m still yet to find it.’
