I know what to do!

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that can be walked, ran, or biked from any location you choose.  You can participate on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill (or stationary bike), at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. You do not have to complete the miles all at once, in one day, or even a week. You can use the entire month to complete the race. 

How do you know how many miles I completed?

  1. We rely on the honor system. You don't have to use a device to prove your miles.
    1. If you'd prefer to use an app to track your miles, we recommend Strava. You can join the HCU Network America Club.
    2. Please use intentional miles - this means no step counting
    3. You can log miles here
  2. Please log all your miles by 11:59 pm EST September, 30, 2022.

How do my miles translate to money raised?

After a racer is registered, they are set up with their own personal donation page. You can direct those who would like to donate to your race link.
