Runner of Steel Virtual Run
|July 10, 2013||Posted by Running at Disney under Non-Disney Races, Training|
Looking for a fun way to amp up your race training? Why not sign up for a virtual run where you can help a good cause AND get a fun medal?!
RAD Reader Angela is hosting the Runner of Steel Virtual Run benefiting the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injuries and improving the lives of those that live with paralysis. The race is only $20 to enter and you get this super cool die cast medal!
So what do you have to do to enter the virtual run and get this fun medal? Just go to the Runner of Steel event page and enter your information. Once registered, you will be emailed an official race bib and you will have until the end of September (yes, September!) to complete the run. You can run any distance you want. Make it a full marathon, a 10K or just a mile run around your neighborhood and you’ll get your medal! 100% of the proceeds will go to the foundation and your medal will be sent to you by the end of September.
Virtual runs are a great way to add some variety to your training. I took part in the Kick Ass 5K Virtual Run earlier this year to support the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. Even though it wasn’t my best run (one of my worst actually!), I was proud to wear that bib and support a cause that is very important to me.
So why not sign up and be a super hero for someone in need?!
Have you every participated in a virtual race?
