What is a Virtual Race?
Virtual races are a way to stay connected with one another when you can't get together for an in-person race. A virtual race is one that you run or walk on your own, at any time of day. Virtual races allow you to run the race on any course in any place you like— country road, park path, treadmill. You are the boss!
If you are in the Chillicothe area, you will receive info for a mapped 5K & 1 Mile course if you so choose to run the designated route but that is not mandatory.
Of course, make sure that you are safe and following rules of the road. There won’t be event staff there to shut down intersections. Stop for cars and run or walk on sidewalks or the left-hand shoulder of the road and stay visible at all times.
What Do I Get?
Racers will receive:
- A race day bib (wearing it is optional, but fun!)
- Commemorative Haunted Hustle Virtual 5K t-shirt
- Finisher's medal to commemorate your achievement
- The satisfaction of raising funds for the Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce
How far do I walk/run?
5K = 3.1 miles
For kids under age 12, they are eligible to participate in the 1 mile fun run.
Important: Please follow all social distancing guidelines and maintain at least 6 feet between you and others. Additionally, be sure to follow your own state and local restrictions about public spaces, trails, or running locations.
Who can participate?
Anyone! That’s the beauty of virtual races. Here or there, near or far – all are invited to be a part of this unique event to bring people together while staying apart and supporting a great community organization all the while!
If you don’t run, then walk. If you really don’t even like to walk, take a stroll. Skip. Lollygag. Have a picnic halfway through. This event truly is for everyone!
What do I do after I finish my race?
You will track your walk/run on your choice of tracking app. (Map my Walk, Map my Run, Run Tracker, Strava, RunKeeper, etc.) At the end of your course, you will save your info or screenshot and share that info to the Miles Apart 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run Facebook event page.
Hint: You have a whole week to complete your run which means if you don’t love your initial time, you can try again and again and again. Well, you get the picture!
Do I get a medal? A shirt? A bib? A post-race donut?
Yes, yes, yes, and you’re on your own for that one. The week prior to the race you will receive your run info, race bib, commemorative t-shirt and medal in the mail to your specified address. A post-race donut is highly encouraged, but we cannot send you one of those without risking spoilage.
How long do I have to finish the race?
The Haunted Hustle 5K race period will begin on Monday, October 26th at 12:01 AM and end Sunday, November 1 at 11:59pm. You can run and submit your race any time during this period. You must complete the distance you signed up for within the specified race period to qualify for ranking.
