Summer kicks off on June 20th and that weekend, we're going to kick it off together at the Summer Loving Virtual Race, brought you you by Run This One!
Run whatever distance you like, just make sure you do it in the most summery fashion. Whether this is your first 5K, a Marathon PR attempt, or anything in between - we'll publish the results afterwards including that pic of you at your summer's best.
You get to help out a bit here too as a portion of the proceeds and 100% of donations (minus credit card processing fees) will be going to the The Robin Hood Relief Fund, an established non-profit with a long history in service of NYC. Robin Hood will deploy your support to vulnerable New Yorkers and the organizations on the front lines that serve them during the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath.
Virtual races have been around for a few years at least and come in all shapes and sizes. Largely though, they are designed so that you can do the race you want when you want. Once you have completed it (or if you want to try 10 times, that's fine too), you send us the results and we publish them like any other NYCRUNS race. Just remember, these are meant to be a way to have fun and the most important thing is that you Win Your Race!
Once you register you'll receive further instructions on how to send us results. If you have any questions, just email email@example.com
There are four tiers of pricing for The Summer Loving Virtual Run .
