What is a “virtual” race?

A virtual race is a self-motivated competition organized online in which you complete a specific distance by running, walking or cycling, anywhere in the world. Virtual racing can be done on a treadmill at home or at the gym, at the beach with friends, alone, in the evening, or at the break of dawn, your choice. Throughout the race, share your pictures and experience with the Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation social media outlets with the hashtag #RunLikeanAmazon

Where is the race?

Glad you asked! Virtual runners are welcome to run or walk whatever route works for them, wherever they are or you can join a Meet-Up. Click here for a list of current Meet-Ups!

How will I receive my t-shirt, and sport bottle?

Virtual runners can choose to receive all materials from their team leader the day of the race OR pay for S+H and have their limited edition Run Like an Amazon T-Shirt and MSU Foundation Lightweight Visor mailed directly to them.

How do I set up a virtual race Meet-Up?

First, be sure to select a location that is well lit and known to you. Visit the location at the time you will be hosting the race to ensure lighting and safety of participants. Next, register yourself to receive your limited edition Run Like an Amazon T-Shirt and MSU Foundation Lightweight Visor. Finally, register your Meet-Up and recruit others to race with you!

I’m not sure I can run a 5K, can I still participate?

Yes! You do not have to run. You can walk, jog, run, or do a combination of all three – just get to the finish line because an Amazon never quits!

Why are we doing this again?
