How does a virtual race work?
Simply register, complete the distance, then report to us how many miles you moved.

How do I track my distance and time my movement?
You will be able to register your results in Run Sign Up.

Can I walk or bike or swim my miles?

You can run, walk, bike, swim, row, or even skip your miles! We are all about movement! Set your goal and keep working towards it.


Do I need to show proof that I completed my move miles?

No, we trust you! Our event isn’t just about moving the miles, its about raising awareness that child abuse happens here in our hometowns and that each child deserves the very best medical care in a setting where healing can begin.
