Virtual Spring Race Series

I am starting up a virtual race series for my athletes and it's open to everyone so if you are looking for something to do/help keep you motivated this spring, see below:

https://runningsolutionsca.wordpress.com/virtualraceseries/

Very simple to take part:

Run the distance outside on the date required on your own (chose your route wisely!), track with your GPS tracker (Garmin or Strava etc...), answer the google form before 10pm MST on the day of the race and then results start to populate in the spreadsheet results that I'll post on my website.

No need to sign up before, no entry fees. I'll try to round up some prizes as well (I'm not shipping anything outside of Canada, sorry to anyone from outside Canada that wants to take part):

Races will include:

Apr 4th: 8k
Apr 18th: Marathon or 10k
May 3: Marathon/Half or 8k
May 16: 1 mile
May 23: 5k or 10k
Jun 6: 6 stage relay - Round up 6 people (virtually) and you each run a 6km and we'll add up the times. That's it.

Details and links to google forms and results will appear on my website here:

Hopefully we'll be back to racing together soon enough and I know this isn't perfect but hey, trying to make the best of a bad situation....

    Can we do point to point (net downhill, like a David Freake race) or does it need to be a loop?

    Ah to be honest, I wasn't planning on policing routes...or shoes for that matter :)

    This sounds like a great idea. Thank you. I fear that some may do these virtual races together as a group. Is there any way that social distancing can be stressed when promoting these events? Thanks for a positive idea during such tough times.

    Skuji: you have to use your GPS tracking program (Garmin, Strava, etc...). Just make sure that says 8km or whatever the distance is.

    First line in the description on how to take part: "Run the distance outside on the date required on your own".
