You can now choose either swim, bike or the most popular option of run.
Since we are all still sheltering in place, we thought that it might be fun to put all of those running and walking miles to use. One day while running we thought “We should run across the state of New York” and that is how the New York State Virtual Run 434 was created. 434 stands for the distance from Niagara Square in Buffalo to Times Square in New York City. Since we are not allowed to actually run down I-90, I-87, or I-95, we thought that it would be a fun route to take virtually.
Wait, you want us to run 434 miles? Yes, except that the time to complete this is from May 15 at 12:00 a.m. to September 15 at 11:59 p.m. OK, so some of you are thinking “Yeah, I can do that,” and others are thinking “I know I cannot do that.” So, we came up with 5 different options to challenge yourself. Pick your finish line.
5 Finish Line Options
NYSVR70 - Niagara Square to Rochester (70 miles)
NYSVR150 - Niagara Square to Syracuse (150 miles)
NYSVR290 - Niagara Square to Albany (290 miles)
NYSVR434 - Niagara Square to Times Square (434 miles)
NYSVR868 - Niagara Square to Times Square and Back (868 miles)
Now you are asking, “What if I choose Rochester as my initial finish line, but I want to go farther because we still have time?” Well then, keep logging those miles until the September 15 deadline because it will pay off handsomely with your own personal psyche as well as additional stars on your medal. Everyone enters the NYSVR434, but it's up to you to decide which city that you are going to stop at or continue on and push farther than you ever have before.
Submit My Miles
How do I go about submitting the miles that I have completed each day? Each person will have a specific URL emailed to them use to enter their data daily. It will also show you where you are on the virtual race course as well as a leader board, runners’ segment board, and some simple info about each location you are passing.
Each person registered will receive a race shirt in the size that you choose that we will ship to you. There will be a choice between men and women sizes. Keep in mind that the women’s sizes are junior cut.
We will also ship to you a custom finisher’s medal. Each medal will start with a red star at Niagara Square. To earn this medal, you must pass the 70-mile marker at Rochester. This will earn you your first finishers star which is a magnet. Pass Syracuse to get an additional star. Make it all the way to Times Square in New York City to receive all of the stars. For those of you that decide to run all the way back to Buffalo we will send you something special in addition to your medal.
