What is a Virtual Race?
Join the Race in Your Own Space
Virtual race events are an ideal way to promote exercise, as well as support causes and celebrate community. You pick the type of race and anyone can join!
A virtual race can be anytime and anywhere, even indoors on a treadmill!
The flexibility for participants makes it easy to schedule and fun as they can determine their own race environment. Best of all, all the money earned through the virtual race tool goes directly to your organization or charity!
