    Usually look at sites for companies in your area that do race management and timing.  There are a couple national ones but mostly for longer races, such as: for half marathons and for marathons. There are several sites that let you map a run.  Google maps can do it, I thimk, and is perhaps best known.

    In addition, two good nationwide sites for races of many different distances are     and   (I've used both).

    Depending on where you live, there may also be local or regional websites with detailed race listings. For example, here in Southern California we have Raceplace, which covers the entire area from Santa Barbara to San Diego and everything in between,
