Virtual runners, get ready for the weekend of June 18th-20th – because that’s when we’re hosting the latest Gone For a Run Virtual Race – the Runder the Sea Virtual 6 Mile Race! The rules are simple as always – choose your day and time – and your favorite six mile course – and run or walk the virtual race, sharing the experience with friends, family, your local running group – but also with other virtual runners across the country.
When you sign up for the Runder the Sea Virtual Race, you will receive your custom race packet, which will contain the following: a t-shirt (your choice of a fitted tank top or a looser t-shirt), an authentic race bib (no downloads here!), and a large, glittery Runder the Sea medal with a “pearl” set it.
Check out the packages you can choose from…
I can’t even explain how much I love the medal – look at it sparkle! If you’re a magpie like I am, you’ll be captivated not only by the (sealed in – don’t worry about it getting all over) glitter of the medal, but I happen to also adore the crab. Look at his little face!
All of our virtual races have a charitable component to them – and this one is no different. When you purchase your Virtual Race packet, a portion of the race entry fee will be donated to Give Kids the World, a non-profit resort located in Florida that provides week-long, cost-free vacations to children and families dealing with life-threatening illnesses.
Be sure to sign up for the Runder the Sea race soon – slots are filling fast and once they’re gone, they’re gone, and we don’t want you to be left out!
When you do finish the race, don’t forget to head over to our Facebook page to share your race photos, recaps, PRs, and stories. We love to see your smiling faces – and then you can look for yourself and your friends in our race recap posts and videos.
Happy running – and virtual racing!
