What is a Virtual Race??
A virtual race is a run that can be done anywhere you choose, at any pace. We welcome all runners, walkers, and joggers of any age. With social distancing still a thing, we didn't want to cancel our annual race again this year and thought we could still raise awareness and support for Day One even if we can't be together in person!
How Does it Work?
This event is a fun run, so you win just by participating! You can run your race at your own pace, wherever you like.
How Do I Track my Distance and Time my Run?
We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. If you want to be accurate, try using a running GPS watch, or one of the numerous free smartphone apps.
Can I Participate if I Live Abroad?
Yes! You can participate from any where in the world! However, we can only ship your race medal to runners in the US.
Can I use Social Media to Publicize my Run?
Please do! Share info about the event, take a selfie, challenge your friends! Just be sure to tag Day One or use the hashtag #DayOne5K
When Will I Get my Medal?
If you are one of the first 250 people to register, we will mail out the medals once we receive them in house (by the end of March) we will start mailing them out as people register!
