What is a virtual race?
A virtual race can be run (or walked!) anytime and anywhere, even indoors on a treadmill. Participants in virtual races earn awesome medals for themselves while raising money for charity.
How does a virtual race work?
Once you have signed up, just simple complete the distance anytime and anywhere you desire between the March 1 -31st, and upload your finish time here! We will mail your finisher’s medal and team t-shirt, and any additional shirts you purchase from the store about 2 weeks after the end of the race period.
Can anyone participate?
Yes! Young or old, fast or slow – we encourage participants of all ages and ability levels.
Can I walk? Do I have to complete the entire distance all at once?
Yes! Most participants complete their run all at once, but we understand that not everyone is able to complete our minimum 5k distance in one outing. What we are doing here at Athletics Race Management is less about hard rules than it is about providing motivation to help with your personal goal setting, while raising money for the wonderful cause in the process.
So set your goal – whatever that may be – and go out and accomplish it! If that means you need to break up your run into multiple segments, so be it. Just track your distance and time each day and enter your TOTAL TIME after you have completed the TOTAL DISTANCE of 5K then submit your results (please do not enter daily totals).
How do I track my distance and time my run?
We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. The most accurate way to do this is by using a Running GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices that you may be interested in.
Where do I upload my results?

Do I have to upload my results in order to receive my medal?
No. We mail medals to the people who didn’t submit results at the end of each race period.
