You don’t need us to tell you that taking classes helps improve your running form, mileage pace and agility. Cross-training has long been proven as an essential part of every runner’s routine and for good reason: building strength throughout your body is just as important as making time for long runs and training sessions.
But if you love running, we know that nothing can compare to the feeling of crossing the finish line. Or improving your race time from the last time you ran the same distance. Or signing up for a race with your fellow running besties and taking time to train (and brunch and stretch and celebrate) together. That’s why we’re so excited to announce ClassPass’s latest addition:
Now, you can book races in select cities, straight from your ClassPass account. Best of all? You’ll get discounted entry! Here’s what else you need to know about reserving races via ClassPass:
Current Races Available
While we only have a few races currently available in select cities, we’ll be adding more, stat. If you’re interested in booking these races, do it fast – most of them are coming up soon!
Tough Mudder in New York Tri-State and SoCal
You feel like a warrior after finishing all of those fitness classes, so why wouldn’t you tackle a Tough Mudder obstacle course challenge? All of that cross-training will come especially in handy when when you and your friends are climbing over, under and through 20+ epic obstacles that will test your physical and mental grit.
The Color Run in New York and Los Angeles
Often considered the ‘happiest’ 5K on Earth, you can colorfully walk or run through this 5K course. As you sport our fave white workout athleisure, powdered bursts of color will be thrown on you, creating a rainbow-effect on your gear. At the end, you can dance it out at a live concert with everyone else coated in color, and of course, enjoy a beer that’s included in the ticket price.

How to Book The Races
While the entry fee isn’t included in your membership, you will get a discounted sign-up cost, simply for being a ClassPass member. To find these races in your city, search for their name under the ‘Studios’ section or click the links above. We will charge your payment method on file but don’t worry, the reservation won’t count towards your class limit if you are on the Base or Core plan.
