What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that can be ran at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race at your pace wherever you like.

How does a virtual race work?

A virtual race can be done at any venue that you wish. You can walk, jog, skip or run the distance of your choice. You can complete your race at the gym on a treadmill, a practice run in town, a stroll in the park, or another local racing event. We believe in the honor system so no proof is required for your race, but it would be awesome if you could upload pictures and tell us about your experience on our Facebook page. Participants that upload pictures will be eligible for additional prizes. All race participants will be emailed a race bib and will be mailed a finisher’s medal.

Why should I do a virtual race?

The short answer would be because they are cool.

The more detailed top 4 reasons would include:

1.The chance to add a really cool medal (also known as “Bling”) to your collection.

2.Complete control over your schedule. Complete the race on your own time. No travel expenses, no hassle with parking and no long lines.

3.An opportunity to support a great cause.

4.…and last but not least, because running is fun!

Who can participate?

Everybody and anybody! There is no age limit and there are no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, crawl, run alone, run in a group, run with your pet, bike, hike, it doesn’t matter. Just get out there and get moving!

Can I complete the race with a group?

Yes ! If you have 10 or more runners interested in participating in one of our races you will be eligible for additional prizes!

Do I have to complete the distance all at one time or can I break it up into different days?

No you are not required to run your distance all at one time. Feel free to break it up into several runs if you need to.

When will I receive my BLING?

All race bling will be mailed out within 30 days of completion of the race. Medals will only be provided to the first 500 participants.

Do the medals come with a ribbon?

Yes! Every medal will come with a ribbon! And it is DISPATCH GOLD!

I don’t live in the United States, can I still participate?

Absolutely!!! Sign up today.
