In edition to our plans for an in-person race, we’re offering virtual options for those who can’t attend on race day or who prefer to run on their own.
The virtual distances can be run at any location you choose, including the actual race course, from Saturday, Sept. 25, through Monday, Oct. 11. (Note: The course will only be marked with the full, half and relay distances, not the 5K and 10K). Virtual participants will get a medal and shirt mailed to them after they complete the event.
Virtual results will be compiled, but there will be no awards or cash prizes.
Registration is now open for all of our virtual races: marathon, half marathon, relay and new 5K and 10K options. The fee is $30/runner through Aug. 31, 2021. The fee will increase to $35/runner on Sept. 1. Anyone who has not signed up can register here.
How and when can I run?
Complete your virtual race anytime from Saturday, Sept. 25, through Monday, Oct. 11. Participants will have two options:
- Use RaceJoy, and have your time recorded automatically.
- Manually record your time, and then submit your time.
You can run anywhere!
We plan to have course markings to indicate miles and turns on the course, we’ll let you know more details when they are available.
Participants who want to use RaceJoy will need to download the RaceJoy App which is available for Apple and Android devices. Then carry your phone during the virtual race and activate the app when you start.
RaceJoy can be used both on the actual race course or if you’re completing the distance at a different location.
Or, manually record your time, and then submit your time. Note: the Submit Virtual Results button won’t be active until 9/26.
Participants can also indicate that they’ve completed one of the virtual events but not submit a time.
Can I switch to in-person registration later?
Yes. If we are able to hold an in-person race this year, and you have already registered for the virtual event, you can switch to run the in-person event. This can be done in the account you used to register on RunSignup. Note: You will be charged the in-person race registration fee if you do decide to switch.
How does the relay work?
Virtual relay teams will have the option of using the actual race course, or running wherever they choose. The RaceJoy app, however will only work if you’re on the race course. Teams that run elsewhere (or choose not to use RaceJoy) will need to manually record their times and submit them. Note: the Submit Virtual Results button won’t be active until 9/25.
Team members do not have to complete their individual legs on the same day, or in a specific order. Each team member submits a time for their leg, and the times for each leg will be added together to produce the team’s final result.
