Run On Your Own Time in Virtual Races with Medals

Are you looking to get active? Do you want a little competition to spice up your life? Have you considered participating in virtual races with medals? You get all the excitement and swag of a traditional race, but all while staying safe and socially distanced. While it's hard to replace traditional races, a virtual race is the next best option! And when looking for virtual races in your area, let Virtual Run US be your guide.

Virtual Racing: What is It?

Just because most folks are staying socially distanced doesn't mean you can't participate in a 5K or triathlon. Virtual races (or virtual runs) give athletes the unique opportunity to compete in races from anywhere and on a schedule that works best. Plus, you still get to connect with other runners, compete for the best times and get amazingly creative shirts, medals and other race swag.

Steps to a Successful Virtual Run Experience

  1. Decide on the Details – One of the best parts about virtual races is your freedom of choice. With so many options out there, you can decide on the details yourself. For example, you choose what kind of race you want to do, where you want to run that race, what goals you wish to achieve for an event, etc.
  2. Search for the Right Race – Once you know what kind of race you want to run, head over to Virtual Run US's website. You can select a race based on when they're happening, what cause they're supporting, what their theme is and more.
  3. Prepare for Your Race – Just because your race is virtual doesn't mean you can slack off in preparation. If you take competition seriously, there's as much incentive to shoot for your best run time during a virtual race as there would be during a traditional one. Eat healthy, exercise and perform your usual race routine to get ready for your virtual run.
  4. Run Your Race – A virtual run event usually takes place over a few weeks. This means you can choose the day and location that works best for your schedule. Ensure you get your best time possible by choosing the running conditions best suited for your body and training.
  5. Continue to Participate – Your virtual run event doesn't have to be over after you've finished the race. Be sure to send your times to Virtual Run US, where we'll, in turn, hook you up with shirts, medals and other fun race memorabilia. And you can continue to connect with hundreds of other runners, all competing to get the best times and overall have a fun time!
