Historically, entering the fall season has signaled the start of the race season. This year will look a little different, with the majority of races going to a virtual format.
What’s so cool about this, is that for a lot of runners, the pressure and stress of ‘race day’ is now reduced! You can run with any type of tracker and plan your start time/route, submit to the race organizer, and still receive all the awesome swag per usual.
Plus, you’ll be keeping yourself and local community safe by practicing social distancing and eliminating contact with large crowds.
Now, what I know a lot of runners will miss is that anticipation and excitement that race day usually brings. There’s no reason to let that go, though! We can continue to harness all the fun AND stay safe.
