What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is self-timed and can be completed by participants on their favorite outdoor run/walk route or on a treadmill. There is no official race route or start time.
Due to social distancing guidelines there is no official race course. Runners/walkers may select their own 5K, 10K or 1/2 mile routes or may complete their registered distance on a treadmill. Runners/walkers are asked to select a route that will allow them to maintain the recommended social distancing guidelines.
The virtual Cosley Zoo Run for the Animals is self-timed. To have your time included in the race results, runners/walkers must submit their results by the end of the day on 6/21/2020.
Recording/Posting Race Results
Race results are recorded by the runner/walker directly on the registration website.
Sign into the website and click on the "Virtual Race" tab from the menu. In the Contact Info tab you can sign up for a text message or email to receive race result instructions sent during on 6/6/2020.
Participants can also email their time to email@example.com. If emailing your time, please be sure to include your name, distance (5K or 10K ) and time (hour, minutes, seconds). Results will only be posted for the 5K and 10K distances.
Please adhere to the Chicago Area Runners Association social distancing guidelines, including:
