What is Virtual Running/Walking?
Virtual running/walking is a way to participate that can be done at any location, any time, and at any pace at the distance of your choice (3.1 mile run or a 2-mile fun walk). You can walk, jog, use the treadmill, run outside, or you can participate in another "real-world" race. You can run your race at your own pace wherever and whenever you like..
Will Race/Walk Times Need To Be Submitted?
You don't need to submit a time in order to receive your official event t-shirt. Special Olympics Pennsylvania believes in the honor system, so we will not require you to post "proof" of your run/walk. If you're registered, you will receive a t-shirt.
What are the fees & deadlines associated with the Virtual Run/Walk?
Regular Registration thru early April
Virtual Runner/Walker (all ages)
$35 (includes cost of shipping t-shirt)
How Do I Fundraise For The Virtual Run/Walk?
Once registered as a virtual participant, your personal fundraising page will automatically be created. Virtual participants can be team captains, members of teams, participate in fundraising contests and become top fundraisers.
Maximize your fundraising impact! Ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts. Ask them to donate per mile, or donate a flat amount, for the total 5k or 2-Mile Walk. Please also keep in mind that there’s no set amount for sponsorship, so your friends and family can sponsor you at any level that’s feasible for them. You can also choose to pay more than the registration fee as an extra donation!
Be sure to share your experience by using #VirtualBSR on any social media platform!
Tips & Ideas for Your Virtual Run/Walk
Use different apps like Google Maps, Map My Run, Nike Running, etc., to determine a 3.1 mile (5K) or 2 mile route near you! You can do this in a group, with a friend or by yourself. It’s up to you how you will participate? You can share your 5K or 2 mile Fun Walk with your friends, family, etc., through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by using #VirtualBSR! Can’t Run 3.1 miles or Walk 2 miles in one day? No problem! You can break the distance up over multiple days to make it more manageable. All you have to do is register!
