Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marathon Virtual race challenge I bought this a month ago as way to help motivate myself to run my first mini, and ultimately first marathon. It has been so awesome to see my progression, strength, and endurance continue to grow while I continue to gain more confidence. The plans are easy to follow, and I can’t wait to finish my next mile stone! Just 4 miles away from being half way through the challenge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first marathon I completed this virtual race after my first marathon was cancelled due to the Covid19 virus. At first I was very disappointed about my race being cancelled but then I found this virtual race. It was nice having the shirt, medal, and bib sent to me before the race. My 10 year old presented me with the shirt and the medal when I came home from my 26.2 run. That made it feel special, especially after my original plans changed unexpectedly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the features!! I bought this two months ago, to participate in one of the virtual races and I am happy I did! The package came on time for me to start my Marathon Challenge! Usually, I run a couple of half marathon with my sister and friends every year, but this year with "Going for a Run" it will be possible to keep the training. I recommend this virtual race, even if you aren't a runner it will work for you. These races are therapeutic for this time we are living in, keeping your mind on something positive and healthy. I definitely love it and I am looking forward to keep on running this Vitual races challenge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome virtual pack! I bought this virtual racing challenge pack when the COVID stay at home went into effect to give me something to look forward to and keep me on a training plan while all of the other races have been canceled. I am very excited about it and am moving through the training. The medal and bib are cute and authentic looking. The tshirt is very soft and looks like a good cut (I don’t get to wear it til I finish!). ;) I am excited to complete the challenge hopefully in the next 9 weeks!

Also with the Marathon Challenge medal the four milestone magnets are included so once you have completed that milestone you can then add the magnet to your medal. Thanks!

Does the mileage have to be completed in one day?

Asked by: Raynard
Hi! Thanks for your question! What is great about the Marathon Challenge is that it comes with a 16 week training guide so that you can and at the end of the 16 weeks you run the 26.2 miles. With our challenges they are all on your terms so if you need to break up the mileage or repeat a week in the training you can do so as well.

Does it need to be completed all in one day or can you spread the miles over multiple days?

Asked by: Kay23
Hi! Thanks for your question! The Marathon Challenge is a challenge that is spread over a 16 week training time and at the end you finish will running a marathon. Even though the Marathon Challenge does include a training program, challengers have tailored it to their own running ability so that they are able to get the most out of the challenge. Thanks!

I’m scheduled to run a RESCHEDULED marathon on August 2nd. If my race is NOT cancelled, you don’t mind if I get a two-fer, right? :-)

Asked by: Malone
Hi! Thanks for your question! What is great about our virtual races is they are all on your terms. Many challengers in the past have used the challenges to help them prepare for an upcoming race and on race day they then earned both the race medal and the challenge medal. Happy Running!

For this progressive challenge, do you run each distance separately beginning with the 10k and ending with a marathon? Or run a total of 26.2 miles?

Asked by: Tray
Hi! Thanks for your question! For all our challenges you will run each distance on the medal as its own separate "race", as you reach each milestone you can add the distance magnet to your medal. What is great about our challenges you also will receive a training packet to help and guide you through the marathon process.
