  • WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?

A “Virtual Race” is all yours! It 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. There are no parking problems. No crowds. No long port-a-potty lines. There is no start gun or nervous, pre-race chitchat with other runners. There is not even a starting line!
