Ever hear of a Virtual Race? A lot of people don’t understand what they are or why they would even want to do one. I was that person a few years ago, I had no idea what it was, and to be honest, I’ve never really participated in one. So let’s discuss….
1. A virtual race is a race that you can run at any location! You can walk, use a treadmill or even run in another race!
2. You don’t have to worry about the weather!! Rain? Snow? Sleet? Ice? Jump on the treadmill for the miles!
3. No crowds!
4. You don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn!
5. No waiting in Porta-potty lines!
They are easy, motivating and of course FUN and based on the honor system.
Some are for charity, and others are just for the Bling.
So why would you run one? Aside from the reasons I listed above…. if you need to add another race onto your calendar but can’t find one close to you you may want to run one. Sometimes, let’s face it….life just gets in the way and you can’t make it to a real race! This is your chance to get the swag without changing your schedule!!
Gone for a Run, you know the company that has some amazing running paraphenelia like medal holders, bib displays, etc now has a virtual racing series!! Their latest is the Bad Ass Runner Virtual 5 Mile Race.
Alright people, since I’m taking the advice of the Suz, I’m telling you to toot your own horn and say “I AM BADASS RUNNER!” All together now….I AM A BADASS RUNNER. Say it as many times as you need to because, YOU ARE ALL BADASS RUNNERS! Shout it from the rooftops people!!
All you need to do is sign up, get your packet in the mail and run, walk or crawl 5 miles on the course of your choice during the date window and receive some Bling!
And for even more fun, go to the Gone for A Run Facebook page and tell them about your run and be entered to win some awesome raffle prizes to include a BibFolio, medal hanger, running journal, beach towel, and Socrates socks!
The race will be held between May 29-May 31, all you need to do is log 5 miles during those dates and you will be eligible to win those awesome prizes on their facebook page!
So let’s talk cash.
Another great thing about virtual races is that they are usually cheaper than real ones!!
Race registration costs $30, and for that price you receive:
- race shirt (either women’s everyday tee or men’s lifestyle tee)
- finisher medal
- car magnet (so you can show the world you are a bad ass runner)
- race bib
You MUST register by May 19th to guarantee delivery of race packet before the race window starts.
