How to Submit Your Virtual Run
To record your virtual run you have a number of options. If you have a GPS tracking device or software (ie. Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch) you will simply manually enter your finish time and also include a screenshot or image of the result from your device/software (under 2MB). If you do not have a device or would like to try out the free app, you can record your virtual run through ASICS Runkeeper™. Remember that to submit your virtual run result you will need to sign in to your Race Roster account.
Follow these easy steps for your choice of how to record your virtual run or walk:
1. Download the ASICS Runkeeper™ app to your phone and create an account or scroll down to log into an existing account
Once you have completed your virtual run in the app, save your workout and it will automatically post to Race Roster results.
(This step must be followed from your mobile device)
