Virtual 5k, Virtual 10k, Virtual Half Marathon and other race distances… some of the biggest and best finisher medals you’ll find anywhere!
What is a Virtual Race? It’s a race you run when you want, where you want, inside or out, alone or with friends. You can even run a virtual race at another event! Check out our Virtual FAQ (below) if you have more questions.
Training for a race?
Setting a goal to complete a virtual race as part of your training plan is a great way to stay motivated and reward yourself along with way!
A virtual race is a “race” that can be run anywhere – no specific starting time or starting place.
Some participants choose trails, roads, treadmills, pretty much anywhere. Perfect option for anyone looking for some extra training motivation, runners with crazy work hours, or moms & dad with busy schedules. Our virtual events usually have a date range of 2 to 4 weeks to complete your run. Run solo, or grab a friend, or organize a group…anything goes! It’s a great way to connect with the running community, and a fun way to burn a few calories.
And don’t forget, we also love it when runners share photos of their run or bling so make sure to use the race #hashtags on social media! Each race has it’s own hashtag, but you can always use #Run131 #131Events or #131Virtual
How do I find a course that is 3.1 miles, 5k or 13.1 miles?
GPS watches are great as are iPhone apps like RunKeeper – you can literally just head out there and RUN till the distance is half way, turn around and run back….. but if you don’t have a GPS watch or iphone, you can use tools like Map My Run or Run Keeperto literally plot out your run BEFORE you go!
