I was provided an entry into this event from BibRave. I promoted the race and the cause through social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook). The organizer of group (and event) followed me. (Other events do not do this).
On Wednesday May 5 I ran my 5 miles. It was not good weather, my medical conditions were limiting me all day and I was not feeling that great. I went out for a nice cold, wet, windy and hilly run. I was able to maintain a good pace, enjoyed the scenery, and surprised myself with my time.

"A Christmas Story Virtual Run 10K"

I was picked, opted-in to this race, from BibRave. I had a great time promoting this event. I got to be creative, included videos, pictures, as well as text. My promotion was around the concept of giving yourself the gift of health this winter.
As for the course, I got to create it. I had the first 5.5. miles figured out. And as I got close to home I hit 6.2 miles (perfect distance). I carried a hydration pack (I have autoimmune diseases that cause dehydration so I need to carry water on a 5K or greater). I live streamed my run through Facebook and had people on and off the entire race.
The swag is really nice and arrived on time. The zip up jacket, with zipper pockets and hood, is comfortable and warm. The beanie is great. I am bald and this keeps my head and ears warm. The medal is nice. And the final item is the custom bib with your name on it.
Since I was promoting the race I had friends who ran the 10K also. I was able to include them in my final promotion.
I had a great time and highly recommend this event.

I received an entry into the virtual race through BibRave (www.bibrave.com). I am a BibRave Pro (ambassador). I had a great time promoting this race. My social media posts were very creative. I live streamed the race through Instagram. Since the race was virtual I carried Nuun , salt stick, and water. There was no expo so I did not provide any stars.
My brother ran this race also. It was his first official 5K. He received his swag and wore his bib during the race. Unfortunately, there was a mix up and I have not received my swag.
I can not wait until we have in person races again. This is one race I want to take part in.

"Pride Stride Virtual- Run your race your way"

My entry fee was paid for through BibRave. When I initially tried my code New York would not accept it. Once they new there was an issue the race management fixed the issue (this was done in less than 24 hours). I love the fact that Pride Stride follows their social media, likes posts, comments on posts, and shared several of my posts.
Pride Stride has many charity partners with this event so I was able to pick an area of the US that impacts me and my family. I chose to run virtually out of New York because of the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (save and inclusive spaces for the LGBTQ+ community).
With a virtual run I got to create the course I ran. I ran my first 100 mile race this summer, and part of today's run was on the same area that I ran my ultra. From now on I will remember the Pride Stride 10K when I run around my neighborhood.

"Silver Moon Race 100 mile ultra"
Overall

I am a disabled athlete looking to run their first 100 mile ultra. Silver Moon Race was incredible. Their race is $180. The virtual option is $60 ($2.50 processing fee). They give you a medal, a belt buckle, and a towel. You can purchase a shirt for $28 dollars. During COVID 19 Silver Moon is giving runners the opportunity to achieve their goals. I was given 30 hours to run 100 miles. After you finished your race you submitted your time.
I set up my home as my base. The first 2 hours I ran on my own. The next 25 hours 38 minutes and 30 seconds I was running with other people. I had 15 friends sign up at different times to run with me. 4 people came out and ran with me. Some of the 19 people I never ran with nor knew before this race. It gave me and the running community a reason to believe again. Believe in humanity and the the human spirit.
This race was larger than myself. It became our 100 mile ultra. Now whenever we run around town everyone is still talking about this 100 mile ultra.
