If you would have told me ten years ago that we’d have a “Virtual Running Day” I would have called you crazy. But with today’s technology, virtual running is a reality.
New York Road Runners recently held their Virtual Running Day last week, and I think it’s a great idea. Admittedly, the race isn’t technically virtual per se. It’s more of a remote race. Racers simply download the Strava app on your mobile device, log in and go for a run or walk wherever you please. Track your distance, and as long as your run/walk runs the length of the 1-mile requirement, then you’ve officially competed in a Virtual Run.
While the official timeline for this year is over, I hope that this article will generate interest for next year!
