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
