Choose a Location.
A virtual run gives you the freedom to race from anywhere, whether it be a local track, the beach, a park or even the gym. Choose somewhere comfortable and exciting where you can go the distance.
Complete Your Race.
It’s entirely up to you how you finish it. Walk, jog, run or even jump on the treadmill to get that distance in! Many races come in various distances, virtual 5k runs, virtual 10k runs, and virtual half marathon runs, and even if you choose a longer distance that works for you, most of these will allow you to break up the distances until you complete it. Talk about flexibility!
Submit Your Results.
Once you finish your run/walk, submit your results to the website. It’s all based on the honor system, however, some runners track their run/walk with a wearable fitness tracker, such as Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin or any others. Note you do not need to submit your results to receive your race kit... this is just for fun!
Share Your Accomplishments.
No, seriously. You deserve to shine and social media can be your flashlight. Use the hashtag #thepopcornrun to show off your win and bring awareness to this amazing opportunity. It will also give you a chance to connect with other virtual racers.
