The event will feature a leaderboard so you can still see how you stack up against your fellow competitors!


Where do I run?

You can run at a course of your choosing, including on a treadmill. Be sure to follow current CDC and local guidance and keep 6 feet away from anyone that you run around, or by, to keep as safe as possible.

When do I run?

You can run (or walk) anytime on September 17-19, 2022.

Will this race be timed?

The virtual run will not be officially timed, but by using the RaceJoy app, you can receive a GPS-based time which will automatically submit your time for you. There will be an online leaderboard showing everyone's times.

How do I post my results?
