Virtual Race Info

For those who choose the Virtual Race option - What is a Virtual Race?

For the safety of our immunocompromised friends and family, they can choose not to gather in a large group.  So instead of an In-Person race, we are offering a virtual run to support the cause of the Life & Breath Foundation and have fun with racing in a location of our own choosing

A virtual run means you choose your course and time to run or walk - your place, your pace! Starting on April 30 we will be accepting results. You may register for the 5K or 1 Mile distance.  You can start any time and use the RaceJoy app to track and submit, or use your phone, fitness tracker, or treadmill readout to show us your distance and time.


Submitting results is not required, but if you would like to see your results counted on our leaderboard- please use one of the methods listed below. After submitting your results, click VIEW FINISHER CERTIFICATE to get a printable certificate showing your name and race time. 

Using RaceJoy to track your race and submit your results:

We’ve made it easy to upload your results to the Virtual Event, using RaceJoy.  You’ll need to download the RaceJoy app: https://www.racejoy.net/download (or choose your favorite App provider)  It’s available for your Android or iPhone.

When you’ve downloaded the app, set up your profile (Name, City, Email Address, DOB) so that RunSignUp can let RaceJoy know that you’ve registered for a race with RaceJoy Tracking. You can also set up a Tracking Number (optional) so that your friends and family can send you messages of support while you are completing your virtual race.

Once you have confirmed your race and distance on RaceJoy, that’s all you need to do until you are ready to race! 

RACEJOY will go live approximately 1 week before Race Day. All those registered will receive an email with further information at that time. 


The results are open starting on 4/16 so you can run your virtual race and submit your time! Open the app and confirm your race.  Click START TRACKING to let the app know!  You will see a message that tells you to turn off your WiFi on your phone; the app runs solely on cell phone connection.  If you keep the WiFi on it will skew the tracking.

That’s it!  As you complete each mile, RaceJoy will give you an audio status update.  When you have completed your distance the app will let you know your completion time and automatically send your results to RunSignUp for inclusion in the race results.  If for some reason your results do not upload automatically, you will see instructions for uploading them manually.  You can also send a screenshot of your results to andrea@bluecheetahtiming.com

Don't worry, we will be sending out instructions via email shortly before race day! 


Don’t want to use RaceJoy? No problem!  Go to the Registration page and click on RESULTS. Click on SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS, look up your name or bib # and add your time results


One final option for submitting results – email andrea@bluecheetahtiming.com with your name, email address, and bib #.  Include a screen shot of your sports watch, phone fitness tracker, or a photo of your treadmill readout that shows your time and distance completed.
