Have you ever wanted to run a race, but didn’t want to wake up at 4am or travel 100s of miles? Have you ever heard of a virtual run?
A virtual race is an online running event that you can run anywhere, anytime! You can run outside, walk the distance, use the treadmill, or complete your virtual race while running a live race at the same time!
Level Up Virtual Runs is a company that features a virtual event each month. A portion of the profits of these events is donated to schools around the US who are struggling to keep their sports programs funded.
Level Up Virtual Runs allow the participant :
- flexibility : the participant can choose their own time and place for their run
- accountability : report your times online after completing the distance
- affordability : run a great race for a goal time, goal distance, or for training for an upcoming event

I plan on running the half marathon distance since I am running my first full soon and I need to keep up my long runs for pacing several half marathons this spring!
Join in the fun with this great virtual run experience! Let me know if you are running this event, I would love to see pictures (and even use them on my recap)!
