What is a Virtual Event?
A Virtual Event is just like a regular race or event, but can be done anywhere at any time by anyone. Virtual events can be a run, bike, swim, golf or other type race, event or challenge. They are virtual in name only, as to participate you still have to complete the type of event at the selected distance during the event dates. The big difference between a virtual event and a traditional event is that you can participate from any location in the world, at a time, place and pace that is convenient for you. If it is a 5k “run” format, you can run, walk or roll (wheelchair friendly) the entire race, or combine running and walking to complete the distance. You can run your favorite trail, track or path, or even use a treadmill. You can even run in another local race and have it count towards this virtual race. You just set your own course and you can run anywhere on the planet at a date and time convenient for you. No long drives early in the morning, or expensive flights and hotels. No long lines at expos or being placed in coral Q at the back of hundreds or thousands of runners. No need to run on cold, rainy days, or hot, humid, sun beating days – unless you want to. You have the freedom and flexibility to fit the event into your schedule.
