What is a Virtual Team and why should you be in one?
Participating in a race is so much more fun with family, friends, colleagues, or new friends-in-waiting. While our normal routines have been disrupted, virtual team members can stay connected digitally through training and the race. They can even participate in fun challenges through running apps or social media. We will be reaching out to our virtual teams and posting team challenges, starting Friday, February 12, Look for emails from us!
Looking for ways to keep your training fun and engaging? We invite you to follow us on social media, where we will be also be posting challenges which will give you entries to our pre-run training prize drawings.
Your virtual team can help and keep you accountable in your fitness goals whether it’s for 2K, 5K or 10K, walking or running. Virtually train together, challenge each other, and then run together, while supporting a great cause. And we will have bonus prize drawings just for team members!
What is a Virtual Team?
A team can be as small as two people. Create a special name and invite potential members. Put a team together from members of your family, neighborhood, church, school, business office, club, gym, organization, or friends. Your team could include friends and families who live far away, or those living nearby but who are not in your social bubble.Optionally, prepay for one or more additional members of your team.
Choose whether to make your virtual team “public” or “private”. The only difference is that when you set up your private team you will be asked to create a password and you will need to share that password with other people who you invite to join your team.
