What is a virtual race?

Despite the name, a virtual race is not “run” online or digitized in any way. It simply means a race that participants run (or walk!) at their convenience at a location and time of their choosing. Virtual races have been around for a few years at least and come in all shapes and sizes. For example, since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Harlem Run has been doing virtual runs for their Monday Night Run series. NYCRUNS, the host of several major races in New York, is switching many of their upcoming runs to be virtual in response to the current pandemic.
