"A Virtual Running Experience Like No Other"

Run to Escape: Mission Mt. Olympus is a fun way to combine a love of escape rooms and puzzles with your love of running. Solve a puzzle, get access to a run, listen to clues while running, solve another puzzle, get another run. . .and so it continues over 6 runs. Having trouble solving the puzzle? No worries - there are helpful hints from your guide, Hermes, that you can access if needed. This is a "green" running experience - all virtual, no swag, no mailings. This may appeal to some while others may miss getting "something" for completing the experience. Throughout the experience the virtual support was fantastic. Don't miss this unique running experience!

"Will Run for Chocolate. . .Virtually!"

The Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K/5K was a great virtual experience! The swag arrived a few weeks prior to the race and included a hooded zipped sweatshirt, hot chocolate packets, a medal, chocolate, and a honey stinger waffle. There was an event Facebook page where participants could visit prior to the race and enjoy a post race party on race day. While this race is supposed to be in Tampa, I ran virtually from snowy Maryland - which was a lot of fun! And it made that post race cup of hot chocolate even sweeter! I would definitely recommend this virtual experience to anyone and hope to run in person one day!

"DC Batman Virtual 5K - Super Fun at Home!"

The Batman Virtual Run was a great option for a virtual race! Registration was affordable and easy with the swag arriving very quickly. The quarter zip jacket, hat, and medal were all fabulous fun! I opted to run the 5K, but a 10K option is also available for the same price and earning the same swag. Be sure to follow the race on social media too as they give great support and fun trivia questions throughout the weeks that the race is open to keep you motivated and encourage a sense of community.

This was a fantastic race experience from start to finish! I love a good theme for my race and Wonder Woman was fun to incorporate from the get-go. The swag I received ahead of my race included a shopping bag, wristbands, quarter zip pullover, and a medal. Communication from the race was clear and shipping was fast. And virtual races are perfect when there are bumps in the road - need to change the date? Do it! It's your race! I had so much fun dressing up, running, and celebrating this race. Definitely recommend!

"Fargo Virtual 10K"

Like many other races in 2020, Fargo joined the virtual options opened to runners. I signed up once they made the decision to go virtual which meant I only had 3 weeks from registration to race day. With the short turnaround, I didn't receive my swag prior to race day which was a bummer, but certainly understandable. The swag was nice - a high quality blue running tech long sleeve t-shirt for the 10K and a finisher medal. This was actually my first virtual race ever and was overall a good experience!
