Virtual 1/2 Marathon:

The official race day is November 2rd.
Registration will be open through October 31st.
To maintain the spirit of traditional races, we believe a medal should be earned by finishing the race. We verify that by requiring that you report a finish time and route, either on our social media pages or via email. If you do not report a time, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A MEDAL. You have a one month grace period to report your time following the race. The last day to submit your time is December 2, 2019.

As far as we’re concerned, race day is as listed above and we anticipate that most people will race that day - BUT - the advantage of having a virtual race is you can do it when and where works best for you. So it’s up to you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, but just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.

All Virtual 1/2 Marathon runners will receive a finishers medal when they submit their finish time and route. Please post your running route on our social media pages or via email.
