We cannot run together through the trails but we can run by ourselves. Share the fun running or walking… virtually. The organizers of the Augusta Adventure Festival have gone virtual.
Run your own course at the same time as everyone else at this virtual run. Use Facebook Live, ZOOM, Strava or Race Map live tracking to compete with the others in a virtual 5k, 10k or 15k.
Most running events are canceled at the moment so you will get to enjoy this virtual run. Whilst the event is competitive it is probably more about engaging with friends and the running community. Challenge your friends even if you cannot be with them physically.
