History of Bodies Race Company 

Bodies Race Company started in 2011 in Kansas City, Missouri with just one event. Husband-and-wife team Brad and Jen were taking many of their personal training clients to local races when someone suggested organizing and hosting their own race. They did just that; keeping true to their passion to provide the community with a fun, family-friendly running event, they tried to do a little good in the community. The community response was better than they could have ever imagined. 

The rest is history. 

Today Bodies Race Company has grown to several Bodies races throughout the year in communities across the country, including ABQ!  Bodies Race Company has remained committed to getting the community active and healthy by providing high-quality events with affordable pricing. You can count on every Bodies Race Company event to provide family fun activities, chip timing, live results, great event shirts, finisher medals for all participants, custom bibs and great post-race food. Sign up today and come run with us!

Bodies Race Company not only produces their own events, they also provide event management and race timing services for other local races. If you know someone that wants to help make a healthy impact in their community send them to our company page at www.BodiesRaceCompany.com to see about franchise opportunities.  

Family. Fun. Fitness.
