Virtual Race FAQs:
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual race event is like a traditional run/walk event except the participant completes it entirely on their own. There is not a required location that the event must be completed nor a mandatory time. A virtual run event creates positive motivation by awarding the participant for their completed activity. Many virtual runs also are associated with giving back and creating awareness to a specific cause, charity, or organization.
HOW DOES A VIRTUAL RACE WORK?
Once the participant chooses their virtual event and registers the next step is to complete the distance and earn the finisher medal. The distance set by the event that they register for can be completed at any location the participant chooses. In most cases the participant may also choose to run, walk, bike, indoors or outside. The choice is completely up to the participant. Also, they are not required to complete the virtual race within any given time. The important thing is to at least finish the event. After the participant has completed the required distance, they can then submit their time that it took to complete via our results page.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE TO COMPLETE A VIRTUAL RACE?
Currently we have no limitations on age. We encourage all ages to participate!
DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE VIRTUAL RACE DISTANCE ALL AT ONCE?
No, The #BowieStateFootball5K is for everyone no matter what fitness level. Whether you are an avid runner or walker, you can split your race over a few days (August 6 -14, 2022) and they can be in any amount of distances as you feel comfortable with! Whichever way you complete the distance, a cool finisher medal is a great reward for your achievement!
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY RESULTS FOR THE VIRTUAL RACE?
The #BowieStateFootball5K is based on the honor system for submitting your results. Once you complete the event your registered for, simply go elitefeats.com/Results and search for Bulldog Football 5K. Then, search your name, click update then enter your time.
WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY FINISHER MEDAL?
If you register for the #BowieStateFootball5K by the registration deadline, you will receive your medal before the start race. If you register after the deadline, you may receive your medal a few weeks after registration (subject to availability).
DO I HAVE TO RUN THE VIRTUAL RACE?
The goal of the #BowieStateFootball5K is to get you up and moving. Whether you choose to complete your challenge outdoors by walking, running, biking or indoors by use of a treadmill, stationary bike, or elliptical machine.
We also understand that many of our participants have different fitness levels. For those that need a little extra time you can also break up your distance into manageable segments. Just make sure you add the full time when submitting your results.
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
We do understand that situations may come up where you may request a refund on your registration. Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on registrations.
