Join us on Saturday April 1, 2023 as we Run With The Dawgs!! This is no ordinary virtual run. It's a unique "live virtual" running event, with thousands of runners who have already experienced and love our race format. Among other things, there is a scheduled race date and start time, virtual check in and start via text or Facebook live-stream on race day morning, timekeeping (runners will provide screenshots or pictures of their chosen method of time and distance keeping), a private and active Facebook group dedicated to our "live virtual" runners, and custom engraving for the back of the medal for age group and overall winners. All participants will receive the custom limited edition RUN WITH THE DAWGS medal, with age group winners receiving the engraving for their medal back.
******* If you cannot or do not wish participate on the scheduled race date of April 1st, 2023 you can absolutely still register. Please select the "medal only" option, and we'll ship you your medal a couple weeks prior to the race date so you can run it whenever you want. But, keep in mind, you won't be eligible for age group awards (engraving for your medal) or to be counted among the "official" times posted after race day*****
All registered runners should join our private Facebook Group for access to positive discussions and posts regarding our live virtual races and challenges, race day live-stream virtual check-in and virtual start (Note: joining the Facebook group is NOT required to participate. Non-Facebook users can participate via text on race day). Here is the Facebook Group link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/880518105739882/
You are also encouraged to follow our business page: https://www.facebook.com/RelevantRunning
Race Date virtual check in and start time: Sat. April 1st, 2023. Virtual check-in via text or live-stream in the Facebook group above starts at 7:00am Eastern time USA. Virtual race start at 8:00am Eastern time USA. The live-stream will be going while you are running, and we will be waiting for you to complete your 5k or 10k during the race day window of 8am to 11am Eastern time USA. As noted above, if you cannot participate on/at the scheduled race date/time during the race day window, you can absolutely still register using the medal only option.
Pricing includes free US shipping. Any runners outside the Continental United States may have an extra shipping charge, and will be contacted by the Race Director with the amount. Please note - Shipping is via USPS 1st Class Mail with tracking.
Timekeeping: Given the unique nature of each runner's situation, we will accept proof of completed 5k or 10k on race day (only) via text (to be provided in pre-race info emails). For example: Treadmill runners may text a picture of their treadmill console. Or, phone app users may screenshot their completed run on their phone app and text the picture. Or, runners using a fitness watch may snap a pic of their watch-face and text it in. You may run in any way that is safe, legal, and ethical in your area. It is entirely the runner's choice, and responsibility to maintain safety and follow all your own local laws, directives, regulations, etc.
Results for those who choose to run competitively will be published in the Facebook Group.
