Run the Virtual Race!

Athletes may transfer to the virtual event for free anytime up until the day before the first scheduled packet pickup date at 11:59 PM. Run your own course on your own schedule and still get all of this year’s awesome swag shipped to you at no additional cost.

 

Run Next Year’s Race!

Athletes may defer their in-person registration to the next year for free anytime 30 days or more prior to race day.

 

What if local health directives impact an event on the scheduled date?

Our goal will be to first alter the event to fit within the local health directives and still provide runners with the high quality experience they have come to expect from Pink Gorilla Events. This might mean having multiple wave starts, extending the event to over an entire weekend, or modifying the route. If this is not possible, we will explore moving the race date to later in the year.

If event alterations or postponement are not possible, all registered in-person participants will take part in the virtual event. They will receive participant materials for the current year’s virtual event including any optionally selected paid add-ons which will be shipped to them for free. They will also receive a 25% discount for the in-person event of the same race for the following year.
