COMPLETE YOUR EVENT VIRTUALLY
May 1st – June 30th, 2023
Can’t make it to the event on race day? No problem!
You can still be part of the fun and get all of the great stuff with the Virtual Event.
Choose from any of the distances (all distances are eligible for Virtual except Relay Teams) and complete your event wherever you want, and with the freedom of your own schedule. You can complete it all at once or break up the distance over multiple days. You can bike first, then run and then swim, or run, swim, bike… it’s all up to you!
This is your opportunity to have a great triathlon goal, stay healthy and receive all the amazing race day goodies – including the famous SWAG!
You will have your own finish line, but you won’t be alone!
What You Get:
Motivation to stay on track, stay healthy and complete your goal
The famous commemorative cycling jersey
Special edition finisher’s medal
- Downloadable Souvenir Race Bib
Personalized Finisher’s Certificate
- Social Media Contests and Photo Ops
Choice of 2 ways to complete your distance (all at once or complete each discipline separately when you can)
How the Virtual Event Works:
1. Register Now!
RegisterHEREfor the Virtual Event and select your distance/event that you want to complete.
During the registration process you have 2 different options of how you would like to complete your Virtual Event! There will be a separate Results Page race listing for each of these options/categories:
Option 1: VIRTUAL CLASSIC- This is a continuous event where you complete all of the disciplines (and transitions) at one time – like a traditional triathlon/multi-sport event.
Option 2: VIRTUAL CHALLENGE- This is where you can complete the individual sport disciplines at different times. You can complete each discipline at any time during the Virtual Event Window (the designated time period / dates to complete the event). You can also complete the disciplines in any order that you choose (does not need to follow the traditional order of a multisport event). For example, you could complete the bike distance on the first weekend, the run distance a week later and swim a week after that – as long as it is completed within the Virtual Event window. Transition times are not required for the Virtual Challenge events.
Already Registered? Great!
Plan for how you want to complete your Virtual Event as per above (Virtual Classic – complete your event continuously all at once, or Virtual Challenge – complete each sport separately). You can complete your event at anytime between the virtual window of May 1st and June 3oth, 2023.
2. Train for your goal Event!
3. What you will need to record your Virtual Event
Tracking your Virtual Event –
Before you start your Virtual Event, it is best to have a GPS watch/tracking device. If you have a GPS tracking device or software (i.e. Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch, smart phone, etc.), simply record your virtual event and save it. Uploading your results is very simple and directions on this can be found in the “HOW TO SUBMIT A VIRTUAL RESULT” section below. Don’t forget to charge your device before you start! If you do not have a GPS tracking device…try to borrow one from a friend, or maybe it is time for an early Christmas present! Can’t find a GPS tracking device? No problem – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for other solutions.
4. Download Your Race Bib
We have created an Official Souvenir Race Bib for your Virtual Event! It is optional for you to wear the bib but it is a lot fun and great for the pictures (those wearing bibs will get extra chances to win prizes!). We recommend you download the bib and place it in a waterproof sleeve. Email us here if you’d like a bib:email@example.com
