Registrations during this time will not be a part of the team competition since the team competition ended and winners announced on May 15th.
Welcome to the official site of our ROAD TRIP Virtual Run. This virtual event is designed to inspire you to “keep moving” and remain “race ready”, while having fun with your friends and family! Join us for “Take a Road Trip Day” on June 19th to 21st. The event will take place over 3 days to give you the flexibility to complete your run or walk, with enough time to submit your results. Choose between a 5K or 10K or half marathon. You can complete the event inside on a treadmill or outside on a course of your choosing (see Rules below). Check out our team competition below!
Take a (virtual) road trip anywhere you want to go!
…Where are you going to run?
…Who will be in your bus with you?
…Invite your road trip crew now! (See Teams below)
Our ROAD TRIP theme offers a fun way to imagine traveling anywhere in the world with a bunch of your friends and/or family to complete a 5K , 10K or Half Marathon. You will be asked during registration for your “virtual location” which will be displayed with your results. So get creative on your virtual location and start inviting others to join you on this trip! Let’s see how far we can spread this race across the country and globe.
At Racine MultiSports, we want to do our part to support those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In alignment with our mission to support our community, we are donating a portion of the proceeds from this race to the C&O Canal Trust. The Trust is the nonprofit partner to the C&O Canal National Historical Park, a great local venue for runners, hikers, and cyclists. Your donation at registration will go towards supporting the Trust’s Canal Pride COVID-19 Recovery Fund to help the Park and neighboring canal communities recover from the pandemic. Funds will be used to support volunteer projects to help the Park with repairs, maintenance, and trash clean-up projects resulting from the surge of COVID-related visitation to the Park, providing marketing support for the many small businesses in local canal towns severely impacted by the pandemic, and responsibly reopening Canal Quarters lockhouses for overnight visitors.

Fill your bus! Invite friends and family members to join you on your virtual road trip. Select a virtual destination for your race, come up with a team name, and be sure everyone enters it during registration. We will have the following results categories for teams… Biggest Bus (most team members) and Tour Bus (bus filled with the most variety of home states).
If you already registered without a team but decided to make a team later, no problem. Use your race registration confirmation email from Run Signup to open up your registration and make team edits. If you have any questions contact [email protected].
Results are available for this race! You will be given the option, during registration, to “opt-in” to receive either text or email notifications. This will be the first step to be able to submit your time, after you complete your race, to get your results published. You will submit your time (HH:MM:SS format) through a text or email, and it will automatically upload to the results. Since there is no way to ensure accuracy or a fair comparison of times submitted, the results will only be used to capture your time, proof of participation and for bragging rights! Results will be displayed as “overall” with the ability to drill down to your “age group”. Submitting your time for results is optional. There are no awards for this event.

We ask you to stay informed and follow all COVID-19 and State restrictions, guidelines and laws. This event is not encouraging actual group gathering, rather, a virtual group experience.
