Introducing Spinx Run Fest Virtual Plus

Let's face it. Pandemics are bound to happen every hundred years or so. At the Greenville Track Club we're doing everything we can to stay healthy and help our runners stay healthy. So when we realized that holding our event at Fluor Field was totally out of the question this year, we went back to the drawing board and came up with the idea for SPINX RUN FEST VIRTUAL PLUS.

Spinx Run Fest Virtual Plus is like other virtual races in that it does not take place at a specific venue, it doesn't have a mass start or official starting time, and most importantly, it doesn't involve large crowds. What sets Spinx Run Fest Virtual Plus apart from other virtual events is what it does have:

FEATURES OF SPINX RUN FEST VIRTUAL PLUS

Accurate Timing

Certified Courses

Official Results and Age Group Awards

Water Stations and Portable Toilets

More Great Features!

Two Race Options

We give you two options to choose from:

 

Standard Virtual Race

This is the same as the other virtual races being held. You pick your own course, you run the course, and you submit your time.

 

Certified Virtual Race

This is "virtually" the same as a mass-start race without the mass start and traffic control. Our certified virtual race is run on a USATF certified course. It is accurately timed using our Camera Timing System. The results and awards are official. We even have water tables and portable toilets set up along the course.

*Important Notes about the Certified Races

The Certified Races are virtual. You may run anytime.
There is not traffic control, You are responsible for keeping sharp, looking out and yielding right-of-way to all vehicles!
Timing equipment and water tables will be set up on the certified race courses on the dates below.
The total number of participants on a given day is limited to avoid impacting normal operation of the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
The Check-In Kiosk will operate from 7:30am-4:30pm on Weeks #1, #2, #3 and  #4, and from 6:30am-2:30pm on Week #5.
Runners can start anytime, but please take daylight into consideration and don't start too late!
