2020 is certainly the year of the virtual race. I’ve never seen more diverse races than ever before from swimming distances to biking distances and more!
Running across the country
When we went into phase 2 or 3 in New York State, my running group, WeRWalkRunLI and I started to calculate our miles from Long Island going across country. Each week, team members provided a running tally to Michele D., one of the members of the group and a running partner. Michele posted a photo of where we were each week with a description of the town. It was pretty cool.
Running around the NYC Subway System
Around the same time, many of the group members also joined NYRuns Subway Challenge. This challenge was to run around each station in the NYC subway stations for a total of 240+ miles. That was the first distance “virtual” race we did as a group. Most of the members are making their way through the system.
