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 https://www.facebook.com/runningforangels5k.

You can also register thru RegOnline at http://www.regonline.com/runningforangels.

    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?
