"[The series] offers a unique and competitive series for both recreational and professional runners, BAA executive director Tom Grilk said in a news release. Many recreational runners who are making their training and racing plans in 2014 will look to this series, which provides three races progressively increasing in distance during the course of the year."
Participants who finish all three races receive a special commemorative medal. The registration cost is $200.
