Virtual Events, real benefits for both you and Michigan's State Parks!
Help us celebrate 100 years of Michigan State Parks this year! The HeartMI Virtual Series is the perfect way to pay homage to the beautiful state parks we know, love, swim, bike, run, walk, and hike. A proceed of each registration will be donated to the Michigan DNR to help preserve our beautiful state parks!
Epic Races invites you to join us in the following virtual events:
- HeartMIBike during the month of May (national bike month)
- HeartMILake during the month of July
- HeartMIRun during the month of September
If you complete a virtual triathlon by registering for all three HeartMI events, you will receive a special medal in October, in addition to each events’ finisher medal.
The HeartMI Series takes you off the sidewalks, roadways, and swimming pools of the city and suburbs and into our stunning state parklands.
What is a Virtual Race?
A Virtual Race can be done at any time and any location. You can run or walk. You can participate alone, with friends, co-workers, or even your pet.
Just follow these steps:
- Register for the event.
- Choose the state park for your bike/ swim/ run.
- Complete your HeartMI event distance! Be sure to complete your event during the month listed for each above!
- Be sure to post about your event experience on the HeartMI Virtual Series Facebook Page and upload your results online. Let us know which state park you chose along with a photo. This is not mandatory, but we love it!
- Receive swag in the mail.
Why should I do a Virtual Event?
They can make your training more fun!
You don’t have to wake up early unless you want to.
Add to your bling and get some more really cool “Epic T-shirts,”
Or maybe it’s the little extra motivation you need…
Can my group get a discount?
If you have 10 or more runners interested in participating in one of our races, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange for a group discount for your entire group.

A virtual event is all about you, you do it for yourself so there is no need to “prove” your bike/ swim/ run … BUT… we love hearing about your experience and it’s great to share new routes and parks with others so we do hope you will post about it on our Facebook page. You can also upload your results online, though this is not mandatory for you to receive swag!
