Virtual Race FAQ's

When can I pick up my race packets?

Click Here for race bag pickup information.

Do I need to run on Saturday, April 4th?

No. In fact we strongly encourage you not to try and run during the original scheduled race time. The reason the race was moved to a virtual race was to prevent runners from gathering together to run.

 

How long do I have to finish my run?

You have until Memorial Day (May 25th) to complete your race distance.

 

Do I need to run the official race course?

No. The official course is not a safe route to run without the proper safety measures that are taken on race day. Please find an alternative route to complete your run. Runners from out of state are allowed to run a safe route in their location.

 

Can I run on a treadmill or indoor space?

Yes. Any method of running/walking is acceptable for you to complete your race distance as long as you do it all at one time.

 

Do I need to wear my timing chip when I run?

No. The timing chip is a keepsake celebrating the 10th year anniversary. The chip itself does not work without the proper timing pads that you usually see on race day.

 

How do I show proof of running my race distance?

Any smart device (phone, watch, etc.) will work. A screen shot or photo of them is fine. If you do not have a device that is able to track your results, a map showing your route with a signature confirming you completed the race distance will be accepted.

 

How do I pick up my medal?

Once you complete your run, you can pick up your race medal (including Half Marathon, Relay, and 5K medals) at Rush Running Company in Bentonville from 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday. Rush Running is offering car side delivery of medals so you do not have to leave your vehicle.

 

I am not from the NWA region, can I have my medal and goody bag items mailed to me?

Yes you can. Submit your results by emailing lhyatt@bentonvillear.com and we will mail your medal and goody bag items to you. Please know that we are still waiting on all of our items to arrive due to current shipment and production delays. As soon as we have all the items and we are safe to start sending these out, we will get them to you.
