Want to be a Virtual Runner?

Hey Runners – Did you know Run Events now offers a Virtual Runner option! Want to support the cause but out of town on race day?  Well, we still want you to be included! Here’s how it works:

If you know you absolutely can’t make it but want to sign up anyway, you can still get that tee shirt and finisher’s medal. 

Once you've registered or switched your registration to the Virtual Option, simply run the same distance as the chosen race during the week leading up to race day. Ex: Yiasou Greek Fest 5K is Saturday, 8/24 therefore you have from Saturday, 8/17 - Friday, 8/23 to complete your virtual entry. Share on social media and email the workout from your Garmin or other running app. You will not be eligible for awards or an official time. We'll confirm your workout has been received then the week after the race your shirt & medal will be delivered to the Run For Your Life location that you chose to pick up your packet!  It’s that easy! We want you to be included and if you just can’t make it…. Well now you can!
