What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that can be ran/walked at any location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run/walk your race at your pace wherever you like.
Here is how our Virtual Run/Walk works:
1) Participants register for the Virtual 5K. All virtual participants will receive a commemorative medal by October 1, 2019.
2) Please share your results, experience and photos on Facebook at Pearl and Ivy Educational Foundation Event page. Your results will NOT be recorded as official results, nor will you be eligible for age group awards or rankings.
3) This virtual run/walk is staged completely on the honor system. By registering, we assume you will complete the mileage required.
Thank you for participating in our virtual run/walk - it is very much appreciated!
