What is a Virtual Run?

A virtual event allows participants to complete the race on their own. You will run or walk your registered race distance at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing. You can complete your distance anywhere you prefer, whether it's in a park, throughout your neighborhood, or even on a treadmill. The location is 100% your choice. The important steps are completing the distance during the approved calendar window then accurately uploading your results.  Once those steps are complete your swag bag will be mailed.

Here are  the steps to completing your Virtual Run:

  1. Schedule a time to complete the distance you signed up for: You can run anywhere but the run must take place between April 3th and June 1, 2021 to be eligible to receive your packet.

  2. Accurately Document the distance and finish-time of your run:  Record your run/walk time using a smart watch or tracking device. Then take and/or save a screenshot or photo of your watch or tracking app for proof of completion. (Garmin, Strava, Nike all work well and are acceptable.)

  3. Take a photo to add to the fun!:  Take a selfie or have a friend take your photo and post it on social media. Watch for Carmel Marathon hashtags and our Facebook account to your see your pictures so others can celebrate with you on the fun!

  4. Officially submit your results:  We have created a special email to submit your virtual race results.  Click the link below and send the following information: Your First and Last Name, your race distance, your time, and a screenshot of your results (if you prefer) THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SUBMIT RESULTS. 

  5. Results = Swag Bag will be on its way!:  Your Race Swag Bag will include your race bib, official race shirt, medal and participant bag.  NOTE:  Swag Bags are being prepped and shipped on a weekly basis. Packets will be sent out once a week to those who have submitted their virtual race confirmations.



Be sure to include the following:

  • Your First and Last Name

  • Your Race Distance

  • Your Virtual race time

  • A screenshot of your results (if you prefer)

Note: No awards will be granted for the Virtual event. Since you'll be creating your own courses that will not be certified, Virtual runs may not count as qualifiers for other races such as the Boston or New York marathons.

Streakers: If you participate in the Virtual race, we will honor your status as a Carmel Marathon Streaker.
