Got a course? Run it! Need a course - we have that too!

This event goes BEYOND Virtual!  We have pre-defined courses many California Cities, check to see if we have your City below, and if we do, what does that mean for you?  Well that means your event becomes less virtual and gives you a planned route to do your run WHEN you want, we just came up with the WHERE for you!  How did we do that you ask?  Well it is as easy as you carrying your phone!  We send you directions on downloading the RaceJoy AP to your phone, (yes! it is FREE) and we give you the course in your City to run.  Then it is up to you - RUN the pre-defined course while your phone automatically tracks you!  Once you are completed you can upload your results to our exclusive web-page so you can post to our event site!  We may even have some cool prizes to our top runners, if nothing else, you can see how you did against other runners doing the same course.

Not interested in a pre-defined course?  Ok with us, you can still do your virtual run ANYTIME ANYWHERE, you still will be able to load your results and compare your distance with others!
