Do you hate to miss a Sommer Sports event? Well now we have you covered with our new Virtual Race option available for most Sommer Sports owned events. Just complete the distance anywhere you like, even on a treadmill or stationary bike, and submit your time. You'll then receive the race's cool finisher medal in addition to a race shirt and bib.
Virtual Race options are available for all runs and select triathlons. You can even retro run a race that took place earlier in the year! You can also complete a series race you missed so you can earn the bonus medal!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be completed from any location you want, at any time of day. You can run, jog, bike, or walk on roads or trails, or even on a treadmill or stationary bike. You can even use a non Sommer Sports race to log your distance. You get to run your own race, at your own pace. Once you complete the distance and submit your data, your medal and shirt will be ready for pick-up or shipping!
