Give Virtual Running a Try

On top of running a half marathon, did you know you can also run it virtually? Virtual runs (or virtual races) are one of the best ways to participate in a race without having to deal with all the chaos of a traditional event. Like in-person events, virtual races give you the same excitement, race swag, and health benefits you would typically receive. But, instead of running alongside hundreds of other athletes racing on the same track, you can complete your course wherever you want, and with whomever you want. For this reason, virtual races are the ultimate convenience!
