How Our Virtual Runs Work
Our Virtual Runs are physical activity events completed by participants in their own communities during a specific time frame each month. Participants choose the type and length of activity they wish to complete for each "run". Physical activity may be a run or walk, biking, swimming, using a stationary bike or other exercise equipment, or any other physical activity. Participants choose the distance for the event, whether 5k, 10k, 2 miles, 1/2 Marathon, or even a Marathon!
All proceeds support the outreach programs of MarineParents.com. Discounts for mulitiple events or participants are not available.
Virtual Events for 2021
Sharing Completion Times & Photo
Each participant completes the event by the specified date for that month. Upon completion of their event, participants submit run lengths, completion times, and a photo to share on our Team Marine Parents (TMP) website.
Registration, Bibs, Finisher's Medal
The registration fee for each monthly event is $35 for 2021. Registration includes the event finisher's medal and electronic bib. Bibs are downloaded after registering. T-shirts are available for optional purchase during the registration.
Social Media Profile Image
For each of our Virtual Runs, we provide a social media profile image you can use to show that you are running in a MarineParents.com virtual event. We also include a profile image for members of our TMP Fan Squad to support our virtual runners. For each event, click the "information" link for the social media profile images.
Month of October
For October, we do not do a Virtual Run but encourage everyone to sign up for the Marine Corps Marathon, 10k, 50k, or for children, the kids' 1-mile run. For 2021, the MCM will be holding virtual events for the 2nd year in a row per COVID-19. Learn more at MarineMarathon.com.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we discourage group events except among members of the same household. We look forward to a post-covid time when we can gather in groups to participate in the virtual runs together.
