This was a fun event and it would be an ideal family activity. I'm hoping to see more of these virtual options, even once we are back to in-person races without restrictions. They serve as great motivators for walkers and runners alike, and they definitely add to the inclusivity we all seek to promote in the running community.
The swag for this race was great and included a ringer tee (available in women's, men's, and youth sizes, which I sooooo appreciated), a trick-or-treat bag, Halloween-themed temporary tattoos, and a pretty awesome finisher's medal. Our packets arrived a couple of weeks before we did our run. To add to the fun, the whole neighborhood was nicely decorated (I like to think they did it just for us)! We had beautiful weather and we enjoyed seeing everyone's decorations around the neighborhood.
The race is partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, an organization that my family and I have supported for years. This is the main reason I enjoy doing these virtual runs - not only to support the races themselves, but to help support the charities they are involved with.
I would definitely recommend this fun event. Hopefully they will do it again next year!
