It’s 2016 – and I’m guessing you have probably noticed it’s an election year. It may have been mentioned once or twice on the news… and comedy shows… stuff like that. There has been a lot of excitement and enthusiasm from the voters in the country, and that’s always a good thing. So, naturally, with all this talk of running, we saw a natural connection between the race for the presidency and our own virtual race series. Hence, The Race for the White House Virtual 4 Miler Race.
Sign up for the race, which you can run any time between July 1 and July 7, and we’ll ship you the official race packet, which will include a t-shirt or tank top (in your choice of blue or red), an official race bib, and a large spinner medal that comes with a detachable “I Ran To Vote Today” pin.
It’s up to you to choose your shirt. We have both unisex t-shirts and tank tops in blue and red – instead of voting in a booth, though, register your preference in the drop-down menu on the race page. The best part is, you’ll get exactly what you ask for in your package, no worrying about waiting for results to be tallied at the end of the day! (Though you will have to wait for your package to be delivered- there’s nothing we can do about that part!)
And your authentic race bib will match whichever shirt you choose, as will your medal:
As always, the rules are easy: there aren’t really any! Run or walk the four miles on the course of your choice any time between July 1 and July 7 and that’s it! Virtual Races are a great way to not only earn your race medals, but to share in a running experience with fellow runners all over the country. Don’t forget to send your photos and race recaps to our Facebook page! We love to see your smiling faces, holding your medals, after each Virtual Race.
When you sign up for the race and purchase your race packet, a portion of your race fee will be donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, an organization that helps support the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families.
Sign up today for the Race for the White House Virtual 4 Miler Race and show your love for your country – as well as running – by participating in one of our most patriotic races yet. I won’t say it’s your duty as a runner… but I won’t say it’s not, either. Have a great run!
