Racing With Us
Looking for more info on how this works? You've come to the right place!
Start by choosing your race or challenge, then head to checkout. After you place your order, you will receive an activation email with a link to set up your race or challenge, and download your digital bib. It is during the activation process that the participant info is added to the entry! You will also receive a confirmation email with your order number and details, and an invite to join our #VirtualRunningSquad exclusive Facebook group. You choose the course and activity to complete your race or challenge. That's the beauty of virtual racing!
Absolutely! The participant name is added to the entry during the activation process, after you place your order. You can just forward the activation email to them to set up their race or challenge!
Timelines vary by event. Please see event pages for result submission dates.
We rely on you, the participant, to submit your results! You can use any app or device to track your activity. We offer several options for submitting results, including connecting directly to your Strava account or entering your activity manually.
Absolutely not! This is your race and you get to complete it at your pace. Run, walk, roll, hike, cycle, swim, paddle...the choice is yours! As long as it is a self-propelled activity, it counts. When you submit results, you will be able to select what type of activity you used to complete the distance.
The #VirtualRunningSquad exclusive Facebook group was created to allow our participants to engage with one another, like you would at the starting line or finisher's party of an in-person race. It's a place to post photos and videos from your run, encourage others, and ask questions. No matter your pace or experience, you are welcome in our community!
All about the SWAG!
Our medals are made of 11 gauge steel.
Most of our shirts are made from Primease tri-blend (cotton, polyester, and rayon), they are soft, breathable, and snag-resistant. The product page for each shirt in our shop will indicate the material for that specific item.
Some of our shirts come in a unisex cut, while others are offered in a men's or women's cut. Please see the product page in our shop for information on cut and a link to the Fit Guide for that item.
