MRR Race Rating for January 2018

The Skechers Performance MRR Race Rating for January 2018 is out. It is the first rating for this year. Valsad City Half Marathon takes pole position followed by Tata Mumbai Marathon and Vadodara International Marathon in that order. Where TMM dipped severely this year is in the post race (quality of refreshments on offer). Vadodara also suffered on that same count. Perhaps if they can improve upon that factor, then people would rate it higher.
