DC Front Runners Washington, DC's LGBTQ+ Running & Walking Club

Virtual Race Circuit

We are proud to announce that the DC Front Runners now has a Virtual Race Circuit, which is open immediately to all members through August 31! What is a virtual race circuit? Here are our FAQ so that you can learn more and get started right away.

What is the virtual race circuit?

The virtual race circuit works in many ways the same as our regular race circuit. To finish, you must complete at least six virtual races of your choosing, provided they are of scorable distance (see below for criteria) and a distance of 5K or more. If you complete at least 12 races you will receive overachiever status. The process for submitting your results is the same as the regular race circuit and will be featured in the weekly eNews announcements. Same friendly competition and ranking when the circuit ends, the difference is that the races required are all virtual races.

NOTE: When submitting your race online, choose one of the “Virtual” options listed on the top of the submission form.

What is considered a virtual race for this circuit?

You can run a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, or any scorable distance. Your run submitted must be the actual length of the race or slightly higher. This means about 3.1-3.2 for a 5K, 6.1-6.2 for a 10K, and so on. You can choose any day, any time, any course, what matters is the distance. You can run your best as a race, or for fun, all will be ranked the same.

How do I submit my virtual race results?

You can submit your results the same way that you do for our regular race circuit. On the form there are options for the virtual race distances. If you run a scorable distance that is not listed, you can choose that option and note your distance under Race of Choice Name.

Do I have to be a member of DC Front Runners to participate?

Yes, the Virtual Race Circuit is open to all members of DC Front Runners. If you are not a member, you can join and you will enjoy other benefits of membership as well. Join here.
