Q: Do you have Age Group awards?

A: Yes for the local events only, where finish times can be validated. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place is awarded in each group. We use the following categories for both men and women: 09 & Under, 10-12, 13-17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & Over.

Q: What do you mean by Virtual race?

A: It's a race that you complete on your own, anywhere you like but also with other people in different locations. Some prefer to run alone and support a charity, while also earning a medal for themselves. It's great for small groups or remote areas, without many races to choose from! Treat it like a real race and get others to join you and it's a more fun!

Q: How does the Virtual race work? 

  1. Sign up for a race to order your race packet. We mail it out as soon as everything is available!
  2. Set a date and pick your own course to run/walk. You are in charge of how you earn your medal!
  3. Record your finish time with a simple watch or running app on your phone.
  4. Celebrate your victory! Wear your medal with pride, you earned it!
  5. Report your finishing time and share your story in the Facebook group or the Facebook event page.
  6. Sign up for the next race and tell your friends about us!

Q: Where does the money go?

A: Each month, we donate a portion of the proceeds from every race, directly to Team Red White and Blue or another charity. For our other special event fundraisers, we usually donate 30% from each registration to the charity. We publish an Accountability Report on our Facebook page monthly, when each donation is completed.

Q: Do you ship Internationally or to Canada?

A: Yes, but shipping does cost us more, so we ask for extra postage through PayPal, depending on where you need it sent.

Disclaimer: By signing up to run with us, you are automatically agreeing to run at your own risk! This includes both the local races offered by Run Your Race and virtual events that you complete on your own. Be alert, obey traffic laws and stay safe!
