Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Lincoln Park Zoo Run for the Zoo Virtual 5K to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!
This was my second virtual race experience. We're all trying to learn a new way of interacting in the race community and the virtual races are certainly a very cool option! For me, it still provides the motivation to get out and train to put forth my best on race day!
Their email correspondence was great! They kept sending email updates as the time grew closer.
The swag was a nice touch. I liked the tech shirt that was mailed out for participants. There was no medal unless you donated a certain amount to the Lincoln Park Zoo, so it went to a good cause!!!
As a Chicagoan by blood I have a connection with the Lincoln Park Zoo and was happy to participate this year when I wasn't able to participate in years past because I was unable to travel. The virtual option was perfect for this!
