This is the third of our FREE virtual races for the running community while we are social distancing due to the covid 19 pandemic. It's a Half Marathon with a fun twist to keep you motivated to stay moving! Instead of doing a half marathon (13.1 Miles) on a single day ... you will be running or walking 4 different distances ("stages") totaling 13.1 miles over a 7 day period starting on Monday, May 25th and ending on Sunday, May 31st Best of all, you can run or walk the stages in any order or on any day you want during this 7 day period. This means you can strategize as to which days you go long; which days you go short; and which days to rest. The stages are structured as follows ... 6.2 Mile Stage; 2.0 Mile Stage; 3.1 Mile Stage; and 1.8 Mile Stage. To enhance your enjoyment, we will be scoring the event using AccuChip Virtual which features real-time tabulation of overall, gender and age group categories.
To participate, just register on-line between now and Sunday, May 24th at 5:00 p.m. EST. At 6:00 p.m. EST, we will post an open results' page showing each stage at www.accuchiptiming.com with a full list of all virtual registered runners.
Starting on Monday (May 25th) and ending on Sunday (May 31st), just run or walk and track your time for each stage and then submit it on the open results' page using the Enter Time icon next to your name for the appropriate stage. You can run or walk the stages in any order that fits your schedule during this 7 day closed period. We just ask that you submit your time on the day you complete a particular stage. Please remember, the deadline to submit the times for all 4 stages is midnight on May 31st. Once the countdown clock reaches zero, no more times will be accepted.
Everyone is asked to report their times using the honor system and avoid embellishment. Cumulative results and position rankings will be automatically tabulated after all 4 stages are completed for the following age group categories: 9 and under; 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84 and 85+. Your age is determined by how old you are on Monday, May 25th.
No performance based awards but everyone who finishes and completes all 4 stages will be entered into a random drawing for free race entries to some of AccuChip's upcoming live race events once race season resumes.
Results will let you see how you are faring against other runners and walkers all while maintaining a safe, social distance of at least 6 feet while running or walking. Don’t forget to tag us on social media using the hashtag #accuchiptiming if you take a selfie on your run. Remember to always wear bright reflective clothing while running and to properly hydrate ... before, during and after each run with water and electrolyte replenishment drinks such as gatorade or powerade. Looking forward to seeing you all virtually at the race!!
