Do you struggle with being able to find a running race that fits your hectic schedule? Gone With A Run virtual races could be the solution! We began our virtual race series in 2015 as a way to encourage people to get out and run while also benefiting charitable causes that are important to us. By choosing a virtual race, you don't have to get up at pre-dawn hours or travel to far-off places to get the thrill of accomplishing your goal. You can run whenever and wherever you please within a certain time frame to complete one of our virtual races, with medals and other spoils to celebrate.

Virtual race registration is open now for all the events listed on this page. These races have to be run in a time span that ranges from a few days to a few weeks. Once you've registered, we'll send you one of our virtual race bags that include an official race bib, a festive finisher's medal and a special themed gift such as a headband or shirt. Get trained up, and when you're ready to officially run the race, pin your bib on and head anywhere from a trail to a treadmill. These races are run on your terms, and the virtual running medals you get to wear at the end are very real!

People from around the world have participated in our virtual running events, and we invite everyone to upload their photos and times to share the experience with others. With a virtual race, you can compete against friends from across the country, give yourself a goal to work towards and enjoy the satisfaction of competing without the stresses. They're a great way to give back as well, as Gone For a Run donates a portion of every registration fee to benefit a charitable partner. We believe in the commitment to “Run it Forward”, and everyone will be moving in the right direction when you register for a virtual run!
