How about a journey around the world? Yes, that’s right. Let’s go on a journey. Sign up for our virtual races and you’ll get a custom race medal of each country mailed to you and we’ll share fun and interesting facts about each country on our Virtual World Racers Facebook Page.
For each race you can choose the distance you want to complete: 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1 miles (half marathon) or 26.2 miles(full marathon). Complete your country for the month that it is listed. We’ll post 12 new countries every six months! Start collecting your medals NOW! You can still sign up for a country medal we've already done and complete the distance as long as medals are still available.
What is a virtual race? A virtual race can be run anywhere. You can run, walk, hike, even crawl, the race distance wherever you want. You can run/walk indoors on a treadmill, around your neighborhood or hike the trails. Miles can even be completed on cruise ships, on vacation, and walking around a theme park for the day. The world is your race track! We have 196 counties to explore so it’s time to get started!
By the way, we are donating 5% of each and every race registration to Pencils of Promise, an incredible organization! They build schools to ensure that their students have access to a quality learning environment. So far they’ve been able to build 363 schools since 2009. Our goal is to donate $35,000 which is the amount it takes to build one school. So let’s race around the world and build schools along the way! Check out our donation page HERE.
