Why would I want to run a "virtual race?"  To help us meet our dual goals of supporting our local charities and having a fun, family-friendly event.  Also help us and our beneficiaries push through these challenging times and continue the Bunny Hop tradition in the years ahead.  Here are several good things about a virtual race.  You can:

  • Run, jog or walk almost any place you choose--on the road, on a trail, on a treadmill, or on a track or even at another race,
  • Run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself,
  • Test your new gear or race snacks,
  • Challenge yourself with a little faster pace in a quiet environment,
  • Make this a fun family event --no parking, crowd or weather issues since you pick your own time and place,
  • Bring your pets, they need exercise too,
  • And you will have the satisfaction of validating your t-shirt and medal.

And of course, you will be supporting worthy Arlington charities.  Remember, together, we can help make Arlington a better place for all!

A very convenient and safe course in Arlington’s Bluemont Park is suggested.  A map and description of this certified course can be found below.  And, OBTW, the second half is downhill!  Additional certified courses in Arlington can be found at https:  certifiedroadraces.com/search.  Otherwise use any convenient place and measuring device to run 3.1 miles.  This website will help you plan and measure your own course.
