Participants first choose a theme, popular distance, cause, or event organizer to choose their event just as they would choose a live running event. Once the particiant chooses their virtual run event and registers the next step is to complete the distance and earn the finisher medal. The distance set by the event that they register for can be completed at any location the participant chooses. In most cases the participant may also choose run, walk, bike, indoors or outside. The choice is completely up to the participant. Also, they are not required to complete the virtual race within any given time. The important thing is to at least finish the event. After the participant has completed the required distance they will then submit their time that it took to complete via our results page. Finally, once the results have been received the finisher medal as been earned and will be sent directly to the participant.
