Anyone done virtual runs?

I want to do virtual runs to mark milestones in my weightloss journey. I hit my first 10 pounds today and looking at the available runs is overwhelming trying to figure out. I'm also not trying to break the bank doing this.

    just pick one and do it!

    I have several friends on here that do them. Some are picked based on swag or the medal, some picked for other reasons LOL

    I did one recently that was Michael Myers/Halloween themed. It was fun, but missing the sense of community. I would do it again if they have a fun theme. I believe the one I did was through Medal Dash.

    I found a free one, it’s not much different from mapping out a route and timing yourself unless you personally know other participants.
    Personally, I’d find a few friends and do my own challenge, unless you find one with cool t-shirts or a worthwhile charity.

    Hopefully the real local runs will pick back up soon.

    I assume you mean virtual races. (Or "events" as I call them, since I will never win!) They are not anywhere near as fun as actual events, but they are good for giving money to some group you support or for trying for a PR.

    But you can always run faster in a group!
