Virtual Race FAQ, dated Apr 24

Unfortunately, we cannot gather together to share sweaty high-fives and hugs, but we still want to create a wonderful race experience for you. A Virtual Race is like a traditional race but it takes place in a location and time of your choice. You can walk, jog, or run wherever you may be, and at any time during race week(end) for your 5k.  We're working on a full package of race experiences . . . 

Where do I run? Time for you to get creative! You get to pick the place for your 5k. Complete the 5k course around your neighborhood, or crush it on the river path! Run along your favorite trail, or head downtown to complete the 5k course! Here is the course map: (insert course map here)

Do I have to run? This is your course, so your pace. TMC Meet Me Downtown is all about having fun! Feel free to walk, run, skip, hike, shuffle, or sprint your distance; whatever is comfortable for you. Miss the pools to jump through? Set one up and splash your way through the 5k, just don’t forget to take pictures along the way!

How do I get my souvenir race shirt?  All early-bird registrants who signed up before April 20th are having their shirt mailed directly to them.  If you signed up after April 20th, we’ll have shirts available for you on race weekend, June 5-7.

What if I live out of town?  If you live outside the general Tucson area we will mail your shirt to you.

What's this about a social media challenge?  Check out our instagram feed at @runtucson and check out the great games and community-sharing fun we're doing.  Earn gift certificates to local businesses like The Running Shop, Hotel Congress, and Downtown restaurants and bars.  

What about the big block party celebration? We’re sad we don’t get to all celebrate together, but there are still ways to celebrate you and your running! Bring out those tutu’s, or dance your way to the finish line. Celebrate by grabbing some food and drinks to go from your favorite downtown restaurants.  TMC Meet Me Downtown is a time to celebrate ALL types of runners in our community, and we can’t wait to see your photos!

How do I share my results? You’ll submit your name and distance completed, and we’ll keep track of it for you!  Wherever you choose to run, don’t forget to track it! Use strava, mapmyrun, or take a picture of your GPS watch or treadmill monitor -- or just tell us whaty ou did! Everyone who signs up and completes the 5k will be entered in our raffle for some awesome prize giveaways.

Where can I post my photos? Share your MMDT training and race day experience on social media! Share with us by tagging @runtucson and use the hashtags #runtucson, #MMTD5k (or whatever hashtag we decide on). We’ll be sure to repost your stories so others can celebrate your accomplishments too!

Where can I get more RunTucson goodies? Well, we gave away all sorts of shirt to our friends who were sewing masks and face coverings, but we’re working on fixing up our race store -- more to follow on that!!!
