1: How I sign up for virtual races?
You can register online for specific races. There are different races you can join with proceeds going to different organizations. For example, the Fearless Together 5k proceeds will go to the benefit of the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. Some races even have optional distances to choose from like the Blessed Are The Peacemakers race gives you the option of 5k, 10k, or even a half marathon for experienced runners or just those dedicated people looking to push themselves to overcome a big challenge to show their support. A big part of any benefit race or 5k is receiving the medal and shirt with the race name and logo on it. These serve as a trophy for your efforts, a memento for reminiscing the occasion later on and most importantly as a symbol of awareness to the cause you raced for. Complete your race and receive a medal and a shirt that honors your race and the benefit it supported.
2: When and where do the races take place?
Participating in one of our virtual races is done on your terms. Run when you’d like! Run where you’d like! If you like being part of the community and showing your support to a cause but find yourself too busy to attend or just prefer running on your terms, Symbol Arts Virtual Racing could be perfect for you. You can run at your favorite park, compete with friends or even take your 5k right to the treadmill to show your support. If you happen to find yourself unable to complete a race for any reason, don’t worry, you can always submit your race times at a later date, and you will still receive your race’s shirt and medal.
3: What do I need to participate?
Anyone is free to participate. You can go solo or even gather your friends, family or coworkers to increase both the fun and the amount of awareness and contribution to the benefit. Make it a competition for race times or walk your way to the finish. Supporting a cause is a victory in and of itself. You even have the freedom with Symbol Arts Racing to organize an event as large as you’d like. You have the power to get your community involved, a church group or neighborhood. Your imagination is the limit with Symbol Arts Racing.
