The ODDyssey Half Marathon is known around the world for our medals.
In 2014 we invented the Wall Mount Bottle Opener Medal. Runner's World called it one of the coolest in the country. Competitor Magazine called it the most useful. Outside Magazine picked it as one of the country's best! Most important, you the runners loved it. Runners from across the country started emailing asking if we had a remote program so they could participate from their home state (or country) and still earn our awesome medal. So, by popular demand, we created the ODDyssey remote running program.
In 2016, we are once again inviting runners who cannot make it to Philly for our local race, to run remotely and earn their medal in their own hometown. But, there is a big change coming. This year is the last year we will have wall mount medals.We believe in constantly setting the standard. 2017 will be a new concept, innovating once again. So, this is your last chance, last call. Jump on the opportunity now and earn the best and most useful medal in the world by running the ODDyssey Half Marathon.
This is a virtual race, you must plan and run on your own.
How does it work? Register for the remote program below. Then you train for and plan a 13.1 mile route in your home town. You can run your race at any time on or after June 12, 2016. But, you must complete it by December 15, 2016. Run your 13.1 and post it to social media, tagging us so we can see you at your finish! We will mail you,
- Remote Bib
- Various Goodies
* Obviously, we cannot provide any run support in your home town. This is on your own.
** Remote registrants must live at least 50 miles away from Philadelphia and may not participate on the official course. You must do a traditional registration to participate in Philadelphia.
