How does a virtual race work?

A virtual race is very similar to a live race. You register, you run/walk (on the honor system) in support of a good cause; but they differ from live events because you get to complete your run from anywhere you like… the neighborhood, a local park, treadmill, track, downtown or country roads. You get to decide!

It’s YOUR RACE, let’s make it AMAZING!


Here’s how you can participate in the Virtual Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk.
