You may be wondering what is a virtual race....
Virtual races work much the same as any other type of race except that virtual races can be run at any location, at any pace, inside on a treadmill or outside-even in another state or country!
How does it work?
You register for the race, fundraise, run or walk the race, upload your results & pictures (if you desire), and print out your finisher's certificate. You can use a free app such as Strava or Map My Run or just a watch to time yourself. We work on the honor system! Have fun and enjoy your run or walk!
You will be sent directions as to how to upload your results & pictures-no worries! You will also be able to download and print out your own running bib and finisher's certificate. Make sure you wear your bib while you run and take your pictures. It makes it more fun when we put the pictures on social media! Wear your shirts or Mitzvah gear too!
Why We Run?
We are running to support Mitzvah Circle, a nonprofit organization located at 2562 Boulevard of the Generals, Norristown, PA 19403. Mitzvah Circle is the only organization in the area that helps the entire family when they are in crisis by providing material support. We deliver individualized care packages containing items each family requests such as diapers, clothes, shoes, toiletry items, books, baby gear, formula, and so much more. Mitzvah Circle provides items that can't be bought with government assistance programs. We help build bridges from despair to hope.
Participants pay only $20 per person when 4 or more people sign up at the same time.
You can work as a team to fundraise. Ask friends, family, and all those you know to support your efforts and a great cause! Go for the highest team fundraiser award and the prize for the captain of the largest virtual team. (See incentives & prizes)
Registration for the 10K, 5K, & 1 mile fun run/dog walk is $25/race.
T-shirt and runner's swag bag (both need to be picked up at Mitzvah Circle's warehouse), printable race bib (receive with registration email confirmation and again by email the week of October 4), printable finisher's certificate (will be sent via email), and entry into the raffle drawing and the virtual run
We encourage you to fundraise. Ask friends and family support your efforts and a great cause! Go for the highest fundraiser award! (see prizes & incentives)
