In the six years we lived in Ithaca, one of my favorite races was the September 5 and 10 miler. Neither distance is very common in road races, and I missed it last year after we moved. So I decided to re-create one this year with a virtual race.
Are you up for it? Join me in the 5 or 10 mile Virtual race over Labor Day weekend. Registration is free- you simply register below and choose a distance. The “race” can be done anytime, anywhere from Friday, August 31 through Tuesday, September 4th, 2012.
If you’ve never participated in a virtual race before, it simply means you run it on your own or with friends wherever you choose and send in your results afterward.
And of course, what is a race without a few prizes? I’m excited to have the following sponsors and their generous donations (read more details about each sponsor here):
One pair of Tommie Copper compression shorts and a pair of calf sleeves ($100 value)
One Allied Medal awards holder of any design (up to $100 value)
One copy of the RW Big Book of Marathon and Half Marathon Training
One Sparkle Skirt ($30 value)
One month’s subscription to ibodyfit for online workouts and exercise videos
Honey Stinger Energy Chews (one box)
Probars (one box)
Sample pack from Drink Chia!
Two $25 gift cards for GoSport ID

I will email a link in September for you to submit your race times, and you can email me photos or blog recap links. I’ll share your photos on the Mommy, Run Fast Facebook page, and share an optional race bib. Please submit all times and photos to me by Friday, September 7th.
I will announce the top 3 overall winners, but all prizes will be drawn randomly.
Additional prize entries can be earned by
- Submitting a photo of your race
- Tweeting about the race, something like: I’m signing up for @Mommyrunfaster’s 5/10 Virtual Race- http://www.mommyrunfast.com/labordayvirtualrun/
- Sharing the race on your blog or Facebook (tag me if you do so I can count it)
Walkers are welcome, too! Are you in?
