The Mud & Chocolate Virtual Race Half Marathons are back in 2017!
Join us in April and/or November!
Details are below, with dates for the APRIL Race…
The virtual race is perfect for runners that live out of town, missed the official race sign-up, can’t make it to the race, or want to run their half marathon in parts. As long as you complete 13.1 miles between April 29th and May6th, and send us your email confirmation that YOU DID IT, then you’re a finisher and we’ll send you an exclusive Mud & Chocolate prize package!
ENTRY FEE: $45
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Email us between April 29th and May 6th to confirm that you finished 13.1 miles and we will send out your prize package. If you do not email us, WE WILL NOT SEND OUT YOUR PACKAGE. You must run and confirm you ran to receive your prize package. You can do it – we know you can!!! Have more questions? See the FAQ below.
OUR RECOMMENDATIONS TO MAKE YOUR VIRTUAL RACE EXTRA SPECIAL:
Hit the trails! We LOVE the way running on a trail gives you an extra boost of endorphins, which is why we created this trail run series. Capitalize on those endorphins by doing your half marathon on a beautiful trail! Don’t have a trail near you? Find an extra special route with beautiful scenery!
Do it with friends! Our events are super social and full of feel-good energy. Give yourself a boost as you cover 13.1 by grabbing some friends and conquering the distance together! Prefer running alone? Great, then find a friend or two to share you accomplishment with!
Bring a chocolate treat along to pump up your run! We love the idea of refueling during the race with a special treat, so pack something you love to give you an extra boost while you’re out there! A chocolate goody afterward is a fabulous idea too! Remember, this race is about chocolate, so indulging a little is practically expected!
VIRTUAL RACE FAQ
If I run the Virtual Race in April, can I run it again in November?
Yes! If you ran in April, your November medal will have a #2 charm attached to it and you will get a different t-shirt than you did in your April prize package. You will also get all of the chocolate!! Please let us know in your confirmation email that you are awesome and that you did your second M&C Virtual Race of 2017 with us!
How do I prove that I covered 13.1 miles?
Just send us an email. No need to include your GPS or MapMyRun results, we trust you, but we do need your email confirmation to send out your prize package.
Can I get my prize package without running?
When you register for the virtual race, you are not buying the prize package, you are reserving a prize package for yourself, to be shipped upon completion of your 13.1 miler. Once you send us an email that says “I finished my run, please send my package to:…” we’ll ship it out! Finishing your race between April 29th and May 6th, and sending us your confirmation email earns you the Mud & Chocolate prize package!
What if I want to run the distance throughout the week?
That’s great! As long as you finish 13.1 miles within the week – you’re a winner and you get your prize package! Just send us confirmation that you ran 13.1 that week.
Where do I send the email confirmation?
Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should my confirmation email say?
It can be very short and simple. For example: “I confirm that I ran 13.1 miles between April 29th and May 6th. Please send my prize package to this address:…” If you’d like to include other details about your run, or some pictures, we’d love to have them! We love to hear running stories and see smiling running faces!!
How will you know where to send my prize package?
Please include your address in your confirmation email. We recommend including an address because we’ve found that many people have old addresses listed in Active.com.
Will you ship my prize package to an international address?
We cannot ship to international addresses at this time, but we can ship to Canada for an extra fee. If you’re one of our wonderful northern neighbors and you want to run, just choose the Canadian option when you register.
