Virtual Run?

I’ve been thinking about hosting a Virtual Run… of the 5k, 10k and Half varieties. My main motivation is to design (and have crafted) an awesome medal, because medals are important and so many of them are ugly. Additionally I want to raise some money for charity or charities. If I do this and the first run goes well (aka people sign up and the medals look awesome) I would do more, maybe every season with matching themed bling! I already mocked up a super cool snowman medal (I think its super cool) and have a summer sun idea in my head, figured out how to handle registration and narrowed down some dates (February 2013) Only thing left is to gather thoughts… thought from my lovely readers.

Frosty the snowman run virtual

What do you think about Virtual Races? Have you participated in one? If not would you? And most importantly would you participate in my Frosty February 5k/10k/Half?

PS Next week I will be posting not 1 but 2  fabulous giveaways, a review or two and a new HIIT workout.

    I love virtual runs. I have horses that have to be fed morning & evening and find it almost impossible to do a structured run. Would be interested in this one.

    I have never done a virtual run but this sound like it would work great with my busy schedule. Can someone fill me in on the 'rules'? Thanks.
