A Virtual Run? Yes!

Virtual runs are just like traditional races with community and fun, but you can run, walk or hike your race wherever you want with whomever you want. You can even finish on a treadmill! The 811 Virtual Run is a 5K. Participants report their time online! It's free to enter. What have you got to lose? Try us out - Register now!
