Memorial Day (Virtual) Run

Designing race bling, race directing races and raising money has proved to be more rewarding and fun than I imagined, so without further delay- the Memorial Day Run!

Like all other virtuals – It’s Your race at your place. Run where ever you are when ever you can on MONDAY MAY 27TH 2013 – MEMORIAL DAY! (Miles can also be run on sat/sun leading up to memorial day if you wish)


Yay for Race Bling!
Yay for Race Bling!


– If over 50 people register (which they should) registration will include the awesome custom medal seen above! (it is not a ‘dogtag’ it is a die cut medal shaped like 2 dog tags)

– If 75 (or more) people register I will give one random entrant a running prize pack filled with running nutrition essentials (valued at around $30)  I am also trying to work on more sponsored prizes, I cannot guarantee anything more but maybe, just maybe some fabulous prizes will be awarded.

– Profits will be donated to the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT – spread the word!

Sounds good? Register today! – HERE  – I may have a special Presidents Day Weekend price, you’ll have to click to see 😉

Kick off summer with a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon! and remember to Run Happy!


* and yes I have borrowed the ‘run happy’ term from Brooks!


    How many people are registered? When will medals be mailed out?

    I just registered. I saw that you said the medals would be mailed out around now. Will I still be able to get one? Thanks!

    If I register now will I still get my medal in time? I have never done a virtual race so I do not know much about how they work. Thanks Amy

        Ok thanks I am assuming once I register you will send me the info telling me how it works?

    I signed my wife, my son and myself up for the Memorial Day Half Marathon on May 17th and was wondering if you just use the address from to send the medals or should I have received a separate email? Also how are the medals shipped ? We live in California so was just wondering when we should expect them so we can be looking out for them.

      Sending most of them out tonight/tomorrow from NY, should be to CA in 3-5 days. So hopefully friday or saturday! if your active address isn't ok please email me josephinelillian AT gmail DOT com ;)

        Hello Josephine, The Active address is correct. Thank you for the update. Joe

    Hi. I just registered today. Am I too late? Have you sent out all the medals? Will wait for more info/race instruction in my email.

    Jude | 5 years ago Reply

      Not too late, medals are out (mostly) and should arrive friday/saturday

      Josephine | 5 years ago Reply

    Memorial Day Monday is a holiday. Would be nice if we get the medals by this coming Saturday ...but I'm from California :(

    Jude | 5 years ago Reply

    I just registered, thank you for organizing this event. I know I will not have the medal in time but can not wait to get it! Will keep this on my calendar now that I know about it for an annual run.

    Hi! I registered on May 3rd and haven't received my medal. I was hoping to wear it today in my run. :-( Also, do we report our time somewhere?

    Carmela Hicks Gordon | 5 years ago Reply

      I hope you received it by now, please let me know if you have not.

      Josephine | 5 years ago Reply

    I registered a bit late (Saturday night), and this is my first virtual run.. How do I turn in my miles? Or does this work on the honor system? I received the confirmation email from, but never got any other instruction. Sorry to pester.. I'm new here. :)
