4 Mile Virtual Run/Walk
What is a virtual race?
A virtual race is an event that can be completed in your own location. You decide where you will run it, you map out your own race route, run or walk the designated miles, and report your participation online. You can run it in your neighborhood, on local trails, on a track, on a treadmill, or even at a local organized race. The beauty of a virtual race is that you choose the location!
What if I’m not fast?
Doesn’t matter!! Our virtual races do NOT go by time since there is no way to compare courses, terrain, weather, or prove distance/times are accurate. Our virtual races will just have you submit a time to show you did it
Do I need a garmin or some proof to show my time/distance?
No our Virtual Race works on the honor system
Why do people participate in virtual races?
Virtual races can be used as a motivation or training tool. Once you commit to the miles, you'll want to get out there and follow through. Another reason people participate in virtual races is because there may not be any traditional organized races nearby and it is fun way to be a part of a bigger running community without having to travel anywhere.
Is there a packet pick up? Will I get a race bib? How about a medal?
YES we will send you a race bib, Race T-shirt and a Race Challenge Coin in the mail prior to you running the virtual race. You can choose whether you wear it or not. Many people hold up their race bib for the camera when sharing their experience online or on social media.
Will you receive a medal upon completion
No our Virtual Race includes a challenge coin - once you register you have taken up the challenge to"NEVER FORGET".
How do I know how far I ran?
Since you don't have the benefit of a preplanned race course with mile markers in a virtual race, you will have to figure out how to log the distance you will run. If you don't have a GPS watch to track your mileage, there are a couple of other ways to document your distance. There are websites like Map My Run that allow you to create your own race route online. You can also use running apps like RunKeeper or Runtastic that use the GPS on your phone to log your distance. If all that technology is too much for you, you could simply get in your car and map out the mileage in your car.
