What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that can be run / walked / *biked at your convenience during a specified period of time. It allows people to participate in a race when they cannot physically run together. Sign up for the race, and run, walk or *bike the distance of the race on a course you create wherever you are. Even participating on a treadmill is an option!

While we encourage you to get fresh air and exercise, please remember to keep your distance and put others first.
Here are 5 tips for running through the COVID-19 pandemic.

As well as the opportunity to get outside and show Festival International your support by running / walking / biking, participants will receive:

- Access to a very special playlist to get the motivation going all the way to the finish line
- A shirt especially made for the occasion
- A virtual bib number
- A Geaux Green sticker to encourage the use of reusable water bottle

Race packets will be mailed directly to the runners upon completion of the virtual race.
