Epic Races invites you to commemorate one of the most stunning experiences of the 21st century: the Great American Total Solar Eclipse! This exceptional event occurs on Monday, August 21, as the moon positions itself between the Earth and the sun, obscuring the solar disk and creating a phenomenal view that only lasts a fleeting 2 minutes and 40 seconds but will be remembered for a lifetime. Observe the solar eclipse’s journey across America by going on your own excursion: a 2.4K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate this celestial occasion.
To participate in the Great American Total Solar Eclipse Virtual 2.4K, follow these steps:
Why 2.4K (roughly 1.49 miles)? Because the maximum duration of totality for the solar eclipse will be 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
Want more details about the total eclipse itself? Head to https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/ to learn about the path of the eclipse, areas of totality, timelines, and more!
Every Great American Total Solar Eclipse Virtual 2.4K participant will receive a gorgeous finisher’s medal, plus an event T-shirt, race bib, and sticker. All Great American Total Solar Eclipse Virtual 2.4K swag will be mailed out the first week of October.
You can participate in the Great American Total Solar Eclipse Virtual 2.4K even if you don’t live along the path the eclipse will take across the United States. Simply go to your trail, track, or even treadmill and do your run or walk there, then tell us all about it on our Facebook event page!
Please note: Epic Races does not ship swag to Canada or internationally. If you are a resident of Canada or another country and wish to participate in an Epic Races virtual event, please provide us with a U.S. shipping address.
