What is a Virtual Run?
A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on your home treadmill, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And, before your run, your tee-shirt and other swag will be waiting for you at the designated packet pickup location (or you can request it to be mailed to you before your planned run date).
Free Running Apps
If a virtual run sounds difficult because you don’t have a wearable device like a Fitbit or Garmin, there are budget-friendly options to track your run/walk. Strava and MapMyRun are just two of many free fitness apps available for download from the app store. Just open the app of your choice and carry your phone with you while you exercise.
