Aberdeen Family YMCA Bull Run - Virtual Run

July 23 - 27, 2020 Aberdeen, SD US 57401
Description

We are excited to announce our new Bull Run Virtual Run, which will take the place of the traditional Bull Run in 2020.  The Virtual Race will be July 23 - 27 and is open to everyone!

 

The Bull Run proceeds benefit YMCA programs and provide financial assistance to youth and families that may not otherwise be able to afford a Y membership and all it has to offer. Our YMCA programs are for Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

 

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN?
In a virtual run, you will run whatever distance you register for on your own, or with family or a friend (making sure to follow social distancing guidelines). Your run does not have to follow the normal race route, and it can be run anywhere in the world.

You will want to keep track of your time for the Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and insure you run at least the minimum distance of the race you register for.

When finished with your run, you submit your time for the applicable races using the different options listed below.

That’s it!

WHEN IS THE RUN?

The time frame for completing the run is from July 23 - July 27. You can submit your race result as of 12:01 am. on July 23. Your last chance to submit your results are Sunday, July 27 at 11:59 p.m.

DO I NEED TO REGISTER?

If you are currently registered for the Bull Run, you do not need to register for the virtual run!  The virtual run will be free to you.
