VIRTUAL RACE FAQS

Answer any questions by visiting our FAQ Page on the Father's Day Classic Website!  VIRTUAL related questions/answers are below:

See the COVID-19 Update Section for the most recent information regarding this event and health protocols.

WHEN should I run this?
-> You can run this ANYTIME you desire.  If it is best for you to wait until later this year to run this distance, then WAIT!  Many participants will be running on the originally scheduled date/weekend, June 21, but that’s the benefit of a virtual event.  Only the RACE is virtual – the RUN is REAL, WHENEVER you choose to do it.  Need to wait until the middle of July?  That’s fine!

WHERE should I run this?
-> That is 100% your choice.  The safest place to run at this time is a treadmill.  If you choose to run outdoors, please take every precaution ordered in your area.  In most of Colorado, that means staying NEAR your HOME and wearing a mask.  Don’t drive to a trailhead or a park.  Stay within YOUR neighborhood.  Yeah, that might mean making 26 half-mile loops around your ‘hood for a 10 miler.  You’ll have stories to tell, that's for sure!

HOW should I run this?
-> Run any way that works for you!  If you’re signed up for the 10-mile race and your training has been thrown out of whack by recent events, then split it up!  Need to walk a mile a day for a couple of weeks to earn it?  Then do that!  Please, follow social distancing precautions.  If you’re outdoors, wear a mask, stay away from other people, don’t touch anything, don’t drive to a trailhead or park, stay near your home/neighborhood.

How do I report my TIME?
-> On the morning of June 21, 2020, the virtual results submission links for each distance will be active.  You’ll be able to submit YOUR time through that link until the end of the month. You can submit them here: (link coming soon!). If you need longer because you’ve chosen to run later in the year, then you’ll email your time after you complete your run.  info@Dads5k.com

Are TIMES verified?
-> No.  For the virtual event, times reported are on the ‘honor system’.  We do have this event listed in STRAVA and encourage athletes to use the STRAVA app to record their runs there as well.

WILL RESULTS be posted?
-> You bet!  Starting the afternoon of June 21, preliminary results will be on the RESULTS page of the website

Will participants be rewarded based on PERFORMANCE?
No, because participants are running in different locations, times, etc. we will not award anything based on performance.  See next question regarding prizes!

Will there be any PRIZES?
-> TBD

HOW will I get my SWAG?
-> It will be sent through USPS.  If your address in your RunSignUp account is outdated, please update it now.  Go to RunSignUp.com Click on "Profile" where you may then edit your personal details.   If your address is not in RunSignUp, you may add it now.  Likewise, you may email info@dads5k.com

WHEN will I get my SWAG?
-> Hopefully, swag will arrive at your location during the week of June 21.

What if I want to change my DISTANCE?
-> You can do this through your RunSignUp account under “manage my registration” or you can email your request.  info@dads5k.com
