Disclaimer: As a Rock ‘n’ Blogger I received a complimentary registration for the virtual race series. As always, all opinions are my own.
Have you heard the latest news from the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series? They recently introduced a new Virtual Race series, which allows runners to run 5ks from anywhere in the world and earn up to four medals. The Virtual Race Series includes three runs, each with its own medal. And just like if you run multiple Rock ‘n’ Roll races in a calendar year, if you run all three virtual races you’ll earn the virtual race series’ version of a “heavy medal” – the Making a Band medal! Each race is $29.99, or the series is $99.
- Guitar Solo – June 26th-July 20th
- Drum Solo – July 21st-August 14th
- Lead Singer – August 15th-September 5th
Only the Guitar Solo medal has been revealed so far. I’d say its in line with the size and quality of other Rock ‘n’ Roll race medals.
Unlike other virtual races that I’ve participated in, after you complete each run of this series, if you tag your participation on social media with the hashtag #RnRVIRTUALRUN you’ll be entered for your chance to win prizes. First prize is a complimentary race entry, with VIP access, to any remaining 2016 Rock ‘n’ Roll series race (excluding Las Vegas).
If virtual runs aren’t your thing but you’re still looking to register for a Rock ‘n’ Roll race this year, be sure to use discount code DANCINGTORUNNING to save $15 on your race registration (excluding Brooklyn and San Antonio).
