I had never heard of this before. Run a race anywhere at anytime. I quite like the fact that I can run on a particular date by myself or with a group and get credit for the run. Of course its strictly an honor system type of run. One of the Virtual race sites I found today is Anywhere5K . They have a lot of races planned over the next few months. And, they are free!! A couple races may ask for a donation to a great cause but that will be stated in the race info prior to you signing up.
The website states:
- Run a 5K race anywhere you’d like.
- Post your time and location (city/state/country) on Twitter with the #Anywhere5K hashtag, on our Facebook page, or on our site.
- (optional) Add a photo or details of your run.
It’s that easy. Check em out, give it a try and tell me how you like it. I’ll be looking at doing a couple of these to complete my #13N2013 runs over the next several months.
See you on the road,
