Coronavirus - Race Options and Best Practices

We Are All In This Together


What is a virtual race?

Virtual races are event (runs/walks) that can be completed by participants anywhere over a range of time.

Why offer a virtual race option?

  • Allows runners to participate in your race when they cannot physically run together
  • Offers a sense of accomplishment similar to the experience of participating in a real event
  • Makes treadmill participation an option
  • Limits waste of previously ordered medals, bibs and other swag
