What is a virtual race?
A virtual race is one that you do on your own time and on the course of your choice. We give you a timeframe (usually 1-2 weeks) to complete the miles. So as long as you complete the miles within the timeframe given, you’ve completed the challenge to earn your Bling.
How does it work?
Very easy!! First set up Earn the Bling account by register for any of our fun races. You can customize your race bib with number and name. Print your bib and off you go. See easy peasy..
When will I receive my finisher’s?
The finisher’s medal will ship 2 business days after the end of the event window.
How do I track my time?
For now, our participants use an app on their smart phones or a running watch such as German or RunKeeper to track their miles. As we continue to improve on our technology here at Earn The bling, we are working towards creating our own app that will allow participants miles to be directly posted as they work towards completing each event.
Where do these events take place?
These events can take place anywhere you feel comfortable and safe. We have many runners and walkers who buddy up or form running group to complete each event. RUN WHEN YOU WANT, WHERE YOU WANT AND HOW YOU WANT!
Does any of the registration money go towards a charity?
Yes! Giving back to the community is an integral part of our business plan. We give a portion of the proceeds from each race to a charity of our choice. Please see the “Charities” link for more information.
