Disclaimer: As a Gone for a Run Ambassador, I received a complimentary virtual race entry. I am not being compensated financially. As always, all opinions are my own.
You all know how much I love using races as motivation to keep me moving. There’s nothing more rewarding than earning a medal at the end of a run, especially at the end of a training run, to commemorate hard work.
I’m excited to share the details of the next race in the Gone for a Run Virtual Race Series. The Run Now Beer Later Virtual 10k will take place from September 25th-27th. This theme is a bit ironic for me since I’m currently pregnant and am abstaining from all alcohol while pregnant. I can’t wait to run my 6.2 miles and then cash in on my earned beer after the baby is born. I’ll be running the Clarendon Day 10k the same weekend as this virtual race, although Clarendon Day does not give out race medals, so it’ll be fun to earn my virtual race medal at the completion of my Clarendon Day race.
So what’s included in the $32 registration fee?
- Race shirt (either a Women’s Everyday Tee or a Unisex Lifestyle Tee)
- Finisher Medal, which includes a bottle cap opener
- Real Bib
There are also fun add ons, including “Will Run for Beer” knee high socks, a “Will Run for Beer” car magnet, a “Run Done Beer Now” pint glass, and a “Run Now Beer Later” coaster (add ons are an additional fee).
As the wife of an Army veteran, this race will be more important to me than the past virtual races have been. Part of the registration fee for this race will be donated to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Since it was established in 2000, the IFHF has provided more than $150 million in support to the families of military members who have lost their lives while serving our country, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans.
So who wants to join me in not only earning a beer but also supporting IFHF? Be sure to register by September 15th in order to receive your race packet in time?
