When all the #socialdistancing lockdown began, I had 5 in-person races scheduled from mid-March through May. All those races were cancelled, postponed, deferred or switched to virtual.
I wanted (NEEDED!) a way to keep training for when my in-person race events resume.
Cue virtual events and step challenges! They're a great way to keep runners and race companies in motion. That's why I just registered for another one: the Ram Racing Cinco de Miler on May 2!
Usually, it's a five-mile race and celebration in Chicago each May. I've never been able to run this race in person, so it's a silver lining for me that it's going virtual this year.

What is the Cinco de Miler Virtual Run?
It's a 5 mile race you can walk, stroll, jog or run. Go the distance whenever and wherever you want. Push a stroller or run with your pup. Run on a treadmill or around your neighborhood.
Follow the rules of safe #socialdistancing, and have fun with your race! Everyone is encouraged to run on the original race day, May 2, but if that doesn't fit your schedule, run when you can.
Results are on the honor system. The the most accurate tracking is with a watch or smartphone app that uses GPS tracking.
Once you're done, you can log your time in your EnMotive account and download a finishers certificate. You can download your finisher's certificate beginning on May 2, 2020.
