In a virtual run, you will run whatever distance you register for on your own, with family or a friend. 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 Virtual 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.

There will be a certificate available to print after you record the time for your race, but no medals will be given for the virtual races. 

That’s it!


There will be various ways to submit your time for the Virtual Half Marathon, 10K and 5K including clicking the Results button above or click here. Times are not collected for the 2 Mile Walk and the Munchkin Run.  Click Here for a detailed explanation of the various options for submitting your time for the Virtual Run or if you are having trouble submitting a time.  The time frame for completing the Virtual run is from July 13-27.
