A virtual race allows runners to set their own “course” and run the race when they want to run. Participants select their own “start line”, whether it is a treadmill, a city park, a track, or along a city street. They run the 5K distance and submit their time online when they complete their run. For the Pioneer Race to Success, runners must run their race and submit their times during the month of July.
