Description

Running, walking, and biking are great ways we can all stay physically & mentally healthy through these difficult times.  Join us as we offer several virtual race options to our community of families and students in the Bellmores and the Merricks.  The proceeds from this race will be donated to our Community Cupboard which serves those in our community who are in need.  

 

 

 

Virtual Race Course

Your Course - Your Start Time - Your Race Date

What is a virtual race?  You have between 4 to 6 weeks to train, and prepare yourself for an 'A' Game effort.  And with today's guidelines of social distancing and group size restrictions, it might be best way we get to compete for the next few months.  You have from April 30th to May 31st to record your race.  You choose the course, the time, and the date.  Submit these results back to us, and we will combine and post all results.

All runners, walkers, & cyclists will be emailed instructions and a link to submit your results.  This email with your result link is sent out to all runner pre-registered by Friday 9pm 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, 5/21, and 5/28.  We are asking all runners submit a screen shot or gps watch image to verify distance & time.  We are all on the honor system :-)  But Overall & age group winners results will be reviewed and verified.

Set your goals.  Keep training and stay STRONG!

Runner Amenities

All runners, walkers, and cyclists will receive through email a custom race bib image prior to racing.  At the conclusion of the event 5/31, we will be emailing out award certificates to all participants.

Photo Finishes

Celebrate your effort with a "Finish Selfie".  We encourage all runners to send in their Finish Line picture and a positive affirmation which will go directly to our race photo album on runsignup.  Email photos to our RACE EMAIL; virtualrace21@bmchsd.org

 

Rules & Safety

*Pick a safe course.  Especially for the cycle portions, be sure you pick a course that will have minimal traffic and safe roadways.  Plan a course that will have no stop signs or traffic lights.  Remember, you are on an open course, so if you are required to stop... do stop.

*Point to point, or out and back, both options are legal in our virtual race.  We are NOT allowed to start on top of a mountain and finish at the bottom.  We are all on the altitude honor system :-)  but any starting point 100 ft above the finishing point will be grounds for disqualification.

*Duathlon Transitions times will not be included in the calculations.  You will be submitting 3 separate times: run-bike-run.  If you need time to lock your bike up, change shoes, change cloths, etc... take your time.  

*You may participate in any event using a stationary cycle, or treadmill.  Please indicate during registration, and again when submitting results if either were used.  Your results will still be displayed, in a special indoor division.

*If you need to bike or run a few miles to get to your "safe", low traffic, no intersection race course, feel free to do so. Just crop out the beginning or the ending of your travels, and only submit GPS verification of the portion distance you raced. ie; 5K, 15M, 30M, 1M, etc.

*Consider all USAT rules in effect.  Helmets are mandatory on the bike,  & Practice social distancing...NO DRAFTING :-) 

Family Pricing

Discounted Family Pricing available.  When registering a family of 4 to 6 participants you will receive a $5.00 discount off every registration.

Include those GRANDPARENTS!!!
