Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Lots of fun! With the current worldwide pandemic, my live half marathon race was cancelled. I was very excited for this race as it was only my second ever half marathon and was in much better shape than my first half marathon. When it was cancelled, I was not going to allow all that hard work and training to go to waste. I got online and I found Gone For a Run virtual races. I thought the medal and the shirt was great, so I ordered right away. The shipping and delivery was super quick and the quality of both the medal and the shirt was great as well. I set out the next weekend and crushed my previous half marathon time by 22 minutes! It was great to reward myself with such a great looking medal and to have a great shirt for the efforts as well. Looking forward to training for the full marathon run soon. Can't recommend Gone For a Run more. The social media presence is great motivation as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half marathon challenge Really enjoying this challenge and the support you get from others in our FB group. Highly recommend this virtual race. Shirt does run small if you get the women’s. I’m a small and ordered a large. Fits perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shirt and medal I love the idea to run the 4 different races and the quality of the shirt and medal are great. Only reason I gave a 4 and not a 5 is I have not figured out how to record when I complete a distance. I don’t use facebook so I don’t know what the other options are in recording.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Motivation for the Year! I am actually moving backwards & started with a half marathon, then 10 miler, then 10K, then 5K. It is keeping me motivated to run year round.

Can you walk these distances instead of running? I have bad knees so I can't run. I've worked myself up to 7.2 miles yesterday! Also, where do you enter your times for each individual race?

Do we need to complete each race separetely ? 5k submit time, 10k submit etc I am ready to run 13.1 which will include all of the challenge distances plus I have already trained. Let me know if just the 13.1 is needed Thanks

Asked by: April81
Hi! Thanks for your question! With our challenges you are are more than welcome to follow the training guide and work your way up to each distance or if you have already worked your way up to a half marathon you can run that distance. Each challenger completes the challenge at their own pace. The challenge does include access to an exclusive Facebook group and training guide. Thanks!

I signed up 8/9 and I am planning to do the complete full half challenge 8/10. I got the email that the packet with the medal will be shipped within 2 days. Am I getting the medal first and the different pins once I have completed the challenges? 

Asked by: Sbonilla1979
For this race, you will receive the medal and all of the mile markers together. As you complete each milestone, simply place it in your medal and move on to your next milestone!

Can we take our time on this or does the 13.1 have to be done all at once?

Asked by: Susan
There are 4 separate races to get you to the half marathon distance! We recommend completing the 5K, then the 10K then the 10 Miler and finally the 13.1 distance! The 13.1 distance is meant to be run all at once.
