How does a virtual race work?
A virtual race can be done at any venue that you wish. You can walk, jog, skip or run the distance of your choice. You can complete your race at the gym on a treadmill, a practice run in town, a stroll in the park, or another local racing event. ONP believes in the honor system so no proof is required for your race, but it would be awesome if you could upload pictures and tell us about your experience on our Facebook page. The first 100 race participants will be mailed a finisher’s medal.
Why should I do a virtual race?
The short answer would be because they are cool. The more detailed top 3 reasons would include:
- The chance to add a really cool medal (also known as "Bling") to your collection.
- Complete control over your schedule. Complete the race on your own time. No travel expenses, no hassle with parking and no long lines waiting at the potty.
- An opportunity to support a great cause. Each of our races will benefit a deserving charity that is making a difference.
Who can participate?
Everybody and anybody! There is no age limit and there are no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, crawl, run alone, run in a group, run with your pet, bike, hike, it doesn't matter. Just get out there and get moving!
Do I have to complete the distance all at one time or can I break it up into different days?
No you are not required to run your distance all at one time. Feel free to break it up into several runs if you need to.
I don't live in the United States, can I still participate?
Absolutely!!! Sign up today.
