Unable to make it out to one of our events but you still want the shirt and bling to say you did it?
Try The Virtual Race Option!
2015 Virtual Events 2016 Virtual Events
With the Virtual Race Option, you are able to complete the race on your own terms and on your own course, but with the ability to earn a medal and shirt by doing it! So if you're out of town, sick or injured, or you otherwise missed one of our events, you can still get blinged out! Each Virtual Race option includes a Race Packet containing a Race Shirt in your size*, a Bib, and a Medal from the event. We do ask that you send us your times from your run to help prove your completion of the event. What's not to love?
*If your size is available. If not, you will be given the choice of the next closest size.

Is shipping included within the registration costs?
If you signed up directly for the Virtual Option, then yes. We will confirm your mailing address and get your bling shipped to you.
But, if you switched from the Actual Event to the Virtual Option, then no, your registration cost only covers the Race Packet. You can either swing by our office to pick up your packet, or pay the Shipping Fee of $5 to have it shipped directly to you. Please contact Virtual@SommerSports.com for more information about shipping.
I was registered to attend the event, but something came up. Can I switch to the Virtual Option?
Yes! We will allow for any changes from the Actual Event to the Virtual Option up until midnight the day of the event. (i.e if the race occurs July 3rd, you have until 11:59am on July 3rd to switch) Due to the last moment switch, we cannot guarantee your shirt size, so please keep this in mind.
Why do you request my times? Is there a special way to send them in?
We use them to help prove that you did the distance and earned your medal. We also post the results that we receive to allow other Virtual Runners to compare times. We require that you send your time, but you can opt-out of having them posted by simply telling us you would not like them posted.
You can send us a screenshot of your phone, a picture of your watch, a read-out of your Garmin, or you can simply just type it out. Results can be E-mailed to Virtual@SommerSports.com
