Businesses we recommend:
OrthoGeorgia Orthopaedic Specialists
Getting injured is really a drag, and not being able to run is even worse. If you need help getting your game back, give them a call. We appreciate OrthoGeorgia Orthopaedic Specialists sponsoring the Macon Tracks OrthoGeorgia Race Series every year.
Run Fit Sports
Your local running store now has two locations, one in Macon at 4524 Forsyth and another in Warner Robins at 4025 Watson St. This is a great place to get personal advice on which shoes are right for you. Ask about current discounts for Macon Tracks members.
Racer Pal Online Race Registration
Andi Berger offers a low-cost, high-quality online registration service for your race. And, unlike the hugely
overpriced Active.com, she won’t even try to sell your race participants magazines or pepper your form with ads while they’re registering!
All your cycling needs in one professional shop. Located at 3003 Vineville Ave. in Macon.
One-stop-shop for training tips, advice on injury recovery, blogs, videos, forums, you name it. The “Smart Coach” feature that creates a customized training schedule is especially useful.
Here’s an easy-to-use mapping program. You can go and see routes that other Macon area runners have plotted. This would also be an excellent tool to check out running routes in new areas when you’re traveling.
This networking site lets you enter your name and magically gives you a list of races you’ve run and the results.
Vdot Calculator and Race Paces

Runworks Multi-function Calculator
Recommended by Tom Weitzel. He says “In addition to normal stuff it calculates equivalent race times for different altitudes, elevation changes, temperatures, inclines or wind speeds.”
Ocmulgee Mountain Biking Association
OMBA is a nonprofit organization consisting of dedicated local bike enthusiasts working together to promote land access, trail construction and maintenance, educational programs, and responsible racing and recreational riding in Middle Georgia. This organization is a chapter of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA). Check their
site for links to maps of local trails and information about mountain biking events. These trails are great for running, too!
Mid GA Triathlon Club
This local club’s mission is to “inspire local triathletes of all levels of interest, ability and experience, and build interest in the sport of triathlon.” They aim to provide a comprehensive online resource for local athletes to communicate, encourage and motivate each other through a discussion board, blog, and group workouts.
To become a member at the BRONZE level, you must either run back to back marathons, 2 marathons in 3 weeks, or 3 marathons in 3 months. It gets harder after that…
50 States Marathon Club
To be a member, you must have run 10 marathons in 10 different states. The club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of health and fitness and the members share the common goal of running a marathon in each of the fifty states.
