Running Virtually

The 2022 Frederick Running Festival is scheduled to be a live race BUT we are excited to announce that the 2023 race will also have a virtual component! This is a great way to still get involved whether or not you’re at the live race! With 2 great virtual distances, the 5k and Half Marathon, there’s something for everyone. So get registered today and then check out the next steps below!

I registered to run virtually… what next?!

1.) CHECK OUT OUR SOCIAL TEAM PROGRAMGet your friends to join the race! Once your team reaches 10 people, you all get a $10 discount! For more information see our social team page.

2.) JOIN OUR VIRTUAL COMMUNITY

While most of our virtual fun will happen on our Facebook page, you can also join us on our other social media accounts. You can find us on Instagram at @FrederickRunFest and Strava @Frederick Running Festival.

We’ll also be sending out need to know information through emails.

2.) Prepare for your race day:

3.) How to Run virtually:

We’re encouraging everyone to complete their race on May 7 for a true race day feel. However, you’re free to do your race ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!

You  may use whatever timing and distance tracking method/app that you chose. You are not required to submit your time, however if you want your time posted online, you must submit your time on Run Sign Up by May 8th. Regardless of whether or not you submit your time, you will get your premium and medal.

4.) Enjoy your SWAG!

Your swag will be mailed to you in May!

We are also hoping to hold a live packet pick up, with more information on that TBA!
