1. The medal is awesome. Though I am not sure they have the best footwear on for running. Just a thought.
2. The distance is up to you. I am still recovering from the Publix Georgia Half Marathon, so I like having the flexibility to decide how far I want to run based on how I am feeling. And since the race is open for two weeks, I can also pick the day when I feel most ready.
4. Sometimes race fees can really add up. If I could, I would race all the time, but my running budget doesn't allow that. The Incredible Virtual Run is only $25 regardless of distance and in addition to the awesome medal, you get a $25 gift certificate to SLS3 (I recently reviewed one of their belts, but they also have armbands and compression socks). Do the math, folks. You are getting the medal for free and if you use the coupon code at the bottom of this post, you will actually be getting more than what you paid for!
5. Level Up Runs is a new company trying to pay it forward. Founded in December of 2015 by two brother runners, Level Up Runs has the goal of using a portion of their profits to support sports programs in schools once the company is off the ground. So far they have been great to work with and their goal of supporting children's athletics is one we can all get behind to encourage the next generation of runners.
To find out more about Level Up Runs and their upcoming races, follow them on Facebook and Twitter. Check out their Instagram to see medals from some of their previous virtual runs.
I was given free entry into the Incredible Virtual Run by Level Up Runs in return for a open and honest review. All thoughts/opinions/musings are my own.
