In most such worlds, these races are related, typically having evolved from one root species (most often either elves or humans) by magical or divine influence.
On the race vs. species issue, one might note that the most commonly used definition of a species is that creatures of the same species are capable of interbreeding, creatures of different species are not.
But fantasy literature (from Tolkien till today) is full of half-breeds between races, of which the half-elf (human/elf hybrid) is probably the most common.

 Violet Books: Forgotten Cities
It could be argued that the thread of Lost Race novels regarding Aztecs — such as A. Middleton Payne's 1852 fictional travel-log which many at the time took to be a true account — constitute a thread distinct from that which followed Haggard.
And the plethora of super-queens that rule these lost races (as imagined by authors other than Haggard) are frequently given names that are frank variants on Ayesha beginning with the letter "A" (when not "M" in subliminal or subconscious homage to the Virgin Mary!).
Some of his fantasy novels were actually short novellas that appeared only as slim, cheap paperbacks, often in series-sets of from three to five episodes for each setting or chracter.

I feel that the reason the fantasy genre remains predominantly chock-full of strapping caucasians and little else is that, still, a majority of authors are writing from a white perspective, for a white audience- whether they realise it or not.
Most fantasy worlds that I can think of certainly have more than one race of people, whether this means variations in the appearance and culture of humans, the traditional elves, dwarves, etc., or some other races of the author's invention.
But in a fantasy world of their own creation, they should be able to manage to write about any kind of person convincingly.
