What is a virtual race and how does it work?

Run your 5K or 10K race any time between Feb 1, 2024 and Sunday Feb 25, 2024.  Run your distance anywhere you want.  

"ItsYourRace" Mobile App

Use the free ItsYourRace mobile app to track, measure, and time your walk/run.  The app will notify you when you have completed your distance and prompt you to add your time to the online results.  It will even let you upload a selfie/photo from your phone which will be included with your online results.

If you don't want to use the ItsYourRace app you may measure/time your run with another app (e.g. MapMyRun, RunKeeper, or Strava) or your GPS or just time yourself with your watch.  After your run go to the online results for 5K Virtual Race or 10K Virtual Race, find your name under your distance, click the "Update Time" button and type in your time.
