Virtual Run FAQ

Welcome to the Run For The Children Virtual 10K/5K/1K Run, presented by GMA Health!

During this pandemic, our cause is more vital than before.  For those children and their families who are suffering from abuse or children who are in situations of risk, we are dedicated to carrying out The Run For The Children, and are thankful that we can do so in a virtual manner. In this way we can best protect the health and safety of our participants and help to bring hope to those in need.

Who does the race benefit?
Proceeds benefit Virginia’s House in Graham, Dr. Goodall’s House in Breckenridge, the CASA program in Throckmorton.

How does a virtual run work?

The Race Bib:  You will receive a link to download and print your bib number.

Timing:  To time your run, use a running app like MapMyRun, Strava, Garmin, etc., and record your time and distance.  We will send you a link to our timing service for you to enter your time, and a link to a video that demonstrates how to do so.  The scores will be tabulated and posted online.
