What is a virtual Race?

Here is why you run Virtual Races!

Help us fund the research to find a cure!

Run for the Memories!
At BlingRunners we are very passionate about helping to find a cure for this atrocious disease. On April 1, 2015 Kimberly Hussey, the Co-Owner of BlingRunners LLC, lost her mother to Alzheimer's. She was only 68 years old. With your entry fee or donation you will be helping fund the research to find a cure. The Alzheimer's Association truly feels that they are within 10 years of finding a cure. Run this race in memory of someone you love that is fighting this disease now or a loved one who lost their battle to this disease. We are hosting the event in loving memory of Kim's mom, Charlene Corniel.
Thank You!
