Personally I've loved the previous 2 installments of the DC Superhero Virtual Races, so when I saw they released a Superman race I had to try it out. They do not disappoint when it comes to race swag, between the sweater, the fanny pack, and they even provided your own personal finish line tape! And the medal is quite a nice touch! I loved that it was virtual and was able to do it on my time,

I loved concept of this race experience! Milestone rewards are a great motivator, with each step of the challenge providing a new piece to the result! With the shorter races I found myself pushing new limits to get my fastest time, which I actually did on all four of the non marathon distances (1 mile, 5k, 10k, and Half). The option to complete the marathon in various segments was so appealing to me, as someone who has not had time in the last few months to marathon train to not be left out! I would definitely sign up for this race experience again, and am now actively seeking other virtual races that follow the same outline!

Loved this race! I've done turkey trots before, but the swag on this one really turned some heads! The colors are very eye catching and its comfortable to boot! I thought it was cool how there was a variety of race lengths ranging from 1M to a half marathon, caters to a wide variety of runners! I personally took the 5k as I have an MCL injury but would love to tackle this one again next year as a longer race! My husband took on the trot too, he loved it!

I have only heard good things about this race series, so I had to try it for myself! Even virtually AllState did an amazing job. The race swag was great, and the inclusion of a virtual after party was such an innovative idea that really drew a good crowd! The customer service was super helpful ( I had an issue with my sweatshirt) but they handled it swiftly and painlessly! If you haven't picked a race in the 'sweetest race' series, what are you waiting for?

This was a fun one! When I saw that it was the same creators as the Wonder Woman run I knew I had to sign up. First of all the swag is top notch, with the hat being absolutely perfect for runs! My friend who isn't the biggest runner signed up for this with me since he is a huge batman fan! We scheduled a time and day that worked out schedule wise but also weather wise, thats the best part of a virtual race, no time constraints! I will definitely be on the lookout for future events in this superhero series
