Raise money by hosting a virtual race!

Since most fundraising events across the country have been canceled, we’ve created a Virtual Race package that is an alternative to a local 5K race.

 

So, what exactly is a virtual race?

A virtual race does not have a specific location or starting time. Instead, participants run in their own neighborhood or on a treadmill any time within a specified span of time, often within a week. 

1. They register online for the event.

2. They choose the distance, and pay the registration fee. 

3. When they complete their run, they upload their finish time. 

4. They are recognized for their accomplishment.

We'd love to help you get started!

Are you interested in learning more? Watch the following recorded video.

Our CEO will walk you through the virtual event process.

Can I really host a virtual race?

 

 

Even if you've never hosted a race event before, that's okay!  Our staff is ready to get your event up and running QUICKLY.  There is no cost to you and 100% of each registration donation will go to your charitable organization.   

The registrant also pays a small processing fee, which we use to cover credit card fees and other costs.

ABSOLUTELY!

Connect People

During this time of isolation, a virtual race is a great way to help organizations connect with their supporters and create a sense of community and shared purpose. Reach your people and inspire them to donate and spread your message.

Athletes can encourage friends to participate with them virtually!

Inspire Fitness

Everyone is being told right now to practice social distancing, but exercise is still considered an essential activity.

 

Give your followers and donors a reason to get out and run or walk with a virtual race.

Raise Money

When a participant registers for your virtual race, you get to keep 100% of the registration donation!  

 

We suggest a minimum of a $10 registration donation (which you have the option to change). We also recommend that you offer our optional swag package so that your participants can commemorate the event.

We offer a complete virtual race package!

 We have found that races offering great swag usually get more registrations. So we created a swag package that you can offer to your participants. There is no charge to you. 

 

The registrant just pays an additional $15 and that includes shipping within the U.S. We completely manage the order fulfillment, keeping things simple and easy for you.

Swag Package

For just $15, runners will receive:

t-shirt, bib, & wristband!
