Another great virtual event put together by Ram Racing. These virtual events have been a great way to hold yourself accountable and still enjoy racing holiday traditions. Awesome swag, great communication, and race kits delivered on time. Ram racing also does a great job at making these virtual events feel more live by having leaderboards to submit times, the ability to add photos to crop and add event logos, and a finisher certificate. If you have ever considered an event by Ram Racing I highly recommend you give them a try.

This race was a great virtual addition! Great communication from race staff regarding both virtual and In-person events. For the virtual event you were given a window anywhere between April 1-30th to complete your route and mileage. Another nice option was for those who lived locally to be able to still complete the race on the actual race day course, but if not local the ability of being able to choose your own course anywhere in the world. If you still had some unanswered questions there was a live Q&A session on Facebook to hopefully curb any anxiety a runner might be having regarding any how to's or what if's.

A very well put together event both virtually and in person. Highly recommend.

This was yet another great virtual race experience to support an amazing individual who supported runners/walkers and gave so much of himself to the running world. All registration funds received went directly to what Tony loved most helping to support Run Wild Missoula.

This was a 4.35 mile race which was the average daily distance of Tony's 1731 day run streak. Once registrants completed and logged their miles they would receive a commemorative pin with the event logo, and a 15% discount on any purchase of Aftershocks. This is a great example of giving back to the running world.

"America's Turkey Trot"

Registration for this event was quick and easy with options of race distance ranging from 1 mile up to Half Marathon. Once registered a confirmation email was sent providing all necessary information from when to run your race and when your race swag would ship. Shipment of race swag was exact to what was predicted and all swag arrived before race day. Race swag included a pretty sweet pumpkin pie inspired finishers medal, winter style beanie, full zipped jacket with side pockets, and personalized race bib. Once your race was complete and your time was submitted you were then able to download a finishers certificate, and apply overlays and stickers to race day photos to help make the event feel complete.

For anyone who has a Thanksgiving morning and day full of cooking and family gatherings this race is an awesome choice for you to be able to still get your Turkey Trot On!

Unfortunately the 2020 Freep was switched to a virtual option only, but race staff poured their hearts into this event making the virtual option a huge success. Very well organized, great communication, and race packets with awesome swag delivered in plenty of time for race day.

There is also an awesome Facebook community of FreeP runners who are there to help support, encourage and cheer each other along. This community of FreeP runners and event staff continue to keep the group active all year long. The activity on this page ranges from virtual book club meet ups/discussions, running questions/advice, encouragement and need to know information for a successful race.

If the FreeP is a race you are considering running, be sure to add it to your list. The in person event is most definitely a must do and the virtual event isn't far behind.
