Description

Celebrate Running in our 22nd annual WORLD RUN DAY virtual event and earn the medal prized worldwide! That's right, the virtual run craze started in 1999 on Long Island to honor our sport. All proceeds support the Greater Long Island Running Club Food Drive, which has been distributing food and personal hygiene products to the neediest food pantries all over Long Island since the pandemic started last Spring. For this virtual run, simply select your favorite run distance and submit your results anytime before the WORLD RUN DAY celebration on November 8th. Your name and result will be listed among other virtual runners. In the 22nd year of this event we also offer a FREE REGISTRATION category - dedicated to the youth of our sport. Get your kids involved in the fun! Register, get your bib, go run and upload your results!  Your virtual cheer squad can send donations directly to GLIRC at 101 Dupont Street, Suite# 24 Plainview, NY. There's a wide selection of distances to satisfy every single runner that runs on Long Island.
