Virtual Option:

We have created a virtual race option for those who would like to participate but are not local, or do not feel comfortable attending an in-person race at this time. Here's how the virtual race works:

1. Register for the virtual event, and sign up for text or e-mail notifications
2. Your race swag will be available for pickup at our packet pickup, or will be mailed to you.
3. You'll receive a text or email (if you opt in) when the VIRTUAL race "starts" on September 18th.
4. Run your race and submit your results either by text message or email (if you've opted in) or by heading to the results page here by September 24th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time). Results update in real time as people submit their times. Be sure to take a selfie and share on the photo page here.
5. Sit back and enjoy your accomplishment!

Note: Virtual race performances are not eligible for the overall event awards, but we'll certainly be acknowledging the winners in our post-race communication.
