If you are uncertain about gathering with others, the Virtual Option is right for you!
Virtual runners will compete separately from in-person runners and choose to run anywhere, anytime, and navigate their own course! All virtual participants will be shipped their runners' packet including a race t-shirt and medal. Cost of shipping is included in the virtual registration price. You are not obligated to submit your race results in order to receive your race kit.
WHEN AND WHERE DO I HAVE TO RUN MY VIRTUAL EVENT?
Choose any day between October 11 and October 28 to run your 5k, 10k or 1 mile Fun Run. As far as the route, this is YOUR race! You can run on a treadmill or choose your own route for the virtual event - although we do suggest adhering to all public health guidelines. Follow these virtual race tips to get the most out of your experience.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY VIRTUAL RACE RESULTS?
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.
Your race kit will be mailed to you at the shipping address you provide starting October 1, 2021. We will also email you a customizable virtual bib before the event window and a customizable certificate once you upload your results. Please share your virtual finish line photos on social media using the hashtag #VirtualPinkPumpkinRun.
WILL THERE BE AWARDS FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?
Virtual runners will not receive traditional awards, but thanks to our race sponsors and partners there will be random prize draws between October 1 and October 30 for everyone registered in any event (virtual and in-person)!
