Should Your 2021 Race Be Virtual Or In-Person?

In many cases, the answer is BOTH. 


A Hybrid Event is any race, run, walk, ride, or fundraising event that incorporates both in-person and virtual elements. Hybrid Events increase options for participants, widens your pool of potential participants and creates built-in contingency plans to help you manage the unknown.


In the era of COVID-19, race directors and nonprofits are embracing a hybrid approach as a tool for engaging the maximum number of participants, increasing fundraising, and keeping legacy events alive. This guide is designed to help you decide how to proceed and succeed in 2021.
