Virtual Race Guidelines
Participants may run, walk, or run/walk their full distance wherever they want - around the neighborhood, on a treadmill, or any course of their choosing. Participants can track their race with Strava, Runkeeper, Garmin, Fitbit, or any other GPS-tracking app that will confirm mileage and time. After the race, we encourage all participants to upload their results to the results page although this step is not required to receive the race amenities.
