I love racing. Really love it. Despite the fact that the night before every race I totally freak out and wonder why I signed up and totally lower my expectations of myself (I know, I have issues.), I do love racing.
Virtual races are a ton of fun too and a whole lot easier to fit in my schedule. I had such a blast organizing and running “Mama Goes Masters” that I thought I’d try to gather all the fall virtual races I can find in one place (maybe this way I won’t forget what I’ve signed up to run LOL).
So, here you go…
TeaMarcia over at Running off at the Mouth is organizing the Power of Ten virtual race to benefit The Lupus Foundation. This one is super flexible. Between now and 10/10/10, donate to the Lupus Foundation, complete any distance that equals 10 (10K, 2 5Ks, heck, even 10 blocks) and let her know. Random winners have the chance to win some pretty cool stuff.
Laura over at Jog for Joubert Syndrome is organizing the Jog 4 Joubert Syndrome 10K. Donate $10 (if you can) to the Joubert Syndrome Foundation via the facebook page and let Laura know you want in. Run a 10K between October 3rd and October 10th and email her your results and race report.
Want to run a real race and “compete” with your online buddies? Check out Amanda at Run to Finish’s PR challenge. In this challenge, you compete to see who can get the biggest PR. I’m still trying to figure out what which distance to choose. Most of my fall races are wierd lengths LOL.
(Exact details available at the individual’s blogs. I’m sure I’ve got at least a few things wrong.)
Any other Virtual Races out there I should know about? Let me know and I’ll update the post.
