Yes. You read that correctly. I have been coordinating the Running For Angels 5k Virtual Race, and I have been offering entries for only $30. This includes a tech tee and a great medal. Starting yesterday, I decided to offer registration for only $20 with medal only. I figured this would gain interest of runners like me that have way too many race shirts.

If you’ve never done a virtual race, you’re probably wondering how they work. It’s pretty simple. Anyone can participate no matter where you live. In a virtual race, you can run or walk the mileage (5k, 3.1 miles) anywhere you’d like. You don’t even have to do it on the actual race day/time. The medal and/or shirt will be mailed to you for your participation.

The race will be benefitting The Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics. About 25% of your entry cost will go toward the cause.

For more information on the race, you can check us out on Facebook at

You can also register thru RegOnline at

    Hey Tim, are you welcoming international participants for this? Happy to make up any additional postage costs you might incur. It sounds like it’s for a great cause 🙂

  2. Absolutely! We already have runners from 7 U.S. states as well as runners in Australia, the U.K. and New Zealand.

    Does it count if you only run the distance in your sleep?
