The Race - Virtual Style

Race Anywhere

You know the virtual drill. Find your own happy place - out on the trails, meandering country roads, or in your own neighborhood.  Please observe all safety guidelines and local mandates.

Race Anytime in October 9 - October 17

The race window opens up on October 9 and all activities must be completed by midnight October 17, and all results posted by October 18.

 

5.22 Mile Race

The 5.22 Mile Race is the virtual equivalent of a single loop of the Rick's Run course at Greenbrier State Park. 

 

 

8-Hour Ultra Challenge

The 8-Hour Ultra Challenge is for those who wish to push the mileage in a single event.  Within the allotted eight hours, run as far as you like - or as far as you can.  Slow or as fast, it's all fine, and there is no requirement to run for the full eight hours.  If you'd like, run anything over the standard 26.2 mile marathon distance to log an ultra-distance finish.  

 

8-Hour Elevation Challenge
The 8-Hour Elevation Challenge is for those who choose to kill it on the HILLS!  Within the allotted eight hours, cover as much elevation as you can find. Track your elevation using your favorite running app (Strava or equivalent).

Premiums

Registration for our virtual events includes a Rick's Run technical shirt. Shirts will be mailed. Register early for the best shirt size selection. 

NOTE: the  soft-tech shirt style from Gildan will run a bit small again this year. You might want to size up.

Results

Participants are asked to log their results on the Rick's Run Results page. Just click on the "Submit Virtual Results" button. Make sure that your results are logged before midnight on October 18.

It's just fine with us if you cross-post the same mileage across the different Rick's Run events and even across other virtual events/challenges that you may be participating in at the same time.

Awards

Sorry - we're only doing awards for the in-person race this year. But we applaud your achievements, and Rick and Larry would too!
