WHAT IS THIS VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run or walk your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Your bib will be emailed and your medal will be shipped directly to you. You will also receive a finisher’s certificate when you complete your race distance. This virtual race can be completed wherever you want to do it!
HOW IT WORKS
The marathon challenge will start July 18th and run until July 30th. You will have 13 days to go complete all the miles of the race distance you choose. Complete it all in one day, break it down into two or three days, or you can even cover a few miles a day for the thirteen days. You decide how you want to complete the distance selected. Each day you run or walk, submit the distance you covered and your time. These live results will be posted daily so you can follow along on the virtual leader board. You can even count multiple sessions per day. You can run or walk the miles all at once or cover a little each day or any combination in between; it’s all up to you. The goal is you just have to complete all the miles within 13 days. The fastest time will win with the shortest amount of days/runs being the tie breaker. All participants will receive a medal!!
REGISTER TO RUN/WALK
Entry fee is $26 per entrant (same price for any distance)
To allow for 100% of the entry fee to go directly towards the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, register by clicking below, and making a single $26 donation. *Please make a note when donating which distance you are choosing. Registration is final so there will be no switching race distances allowed after July 18th. Once you have donated you will be registered and will receive a confirmation email later that same day which will contain your personalized bib.
This race benefits the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Your medal will be shipped to you once the races start. You do not have to wait for your medal to arrive to complete your race. Your personalized bib will be emailed to you once you sign up and then you are ready to run or walk. Once you have completed all the miles of your race you will be emailed a finisher’s certificate.
COMPLETE YOUR VIRTUAL RACE
Once you have signed up for the Marathon challenge, decide on how you want to complete it and then decide on the course you want to do. You can do the entire distance on the treadmill, outside or a combination on both.
SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS
Once you have completed your run or walk each day, you will submit your daily times and the distance you covered. You can use multiple session per day, so if you run in the morning or at night, you can submit each one towards your total. Any combination works and all will count, running and/or walking. All submissions are final, there will be no substitutions allow, and no swapping out for a different entry that day.
Email all submissions to this address: email@example.com
