Vacation Races: Earth Day Virtual Run

April 8th, 2014 | Posted by Erica House in Life

Sometimes, awesome things happen in my life.

Like the day I got hooked up with the lovely folks at Vacation Races.

I’ll be heading up to Tennessee in September with Dad to run their Great Smokey Mountain run (and more on that adventure soon!) but today I wanted to introduce you to their Virtual Race series and give away an entry.

vrI’ve never done a virtual race before but I love the whole idea behind it. Plus, Vacation Races gives out awards for fun categories like:

Most Festive Picture
Most Scenic Course
Youngest Runner
Oldest Runner
Furthest From Home
Most Trash Collected on Run (by weight)
Highest Elevation Run
Lowest Elevation Run
Warmest Run
Coldest Run

I’m definitely going to gun for winning most scenic course. I mean, I practically live on the beach! Vacation Races just announced that they are selling season passes for the virtual races for those who wish to sign up for all 6. For $120 you could get entry into all races and 6 medals! I’m a total bling fanatic so I think that’s a great deal. Plus, you know, the whole running/being healthy thing is a nice side effect.

On April 22nd they will kick off their virtual race series with an Earth Day Race.

For $35 you could sign up for either the 5k or 10k run and get a t-shirt and medal. To guarantee you receive the shirt before race day you will need to register by this Friday, April 11th. The shirt is a 60/40 blend, soft, comfortable fit t-shirt.

Earth DayThe medals are so pretty!  I’m so happy to not have another beer bottle opener medal to hang on my dresser.
