Thanksgiving Virtual Run
Run for the Love of the Run
Thanksgiving is around the corner and you gotta prove you deserve that extra helping of mac n cheese and your grandma’s sweet potato pie!
If you’re new to virtual running, it’s easy to get in on the action… and it’s a great way for the whole family to stay fit together. Just select one of the IRUN4ULTRA themed runs or run them all to complete the Running Series.
About This Activity
We’ve all passed out after over eating on Thanksgiving but this time, we are going to lessen the guilt and get out the house! Be sure to take lots of pictures and then run! Best of all, you can cover the distance on your own course at your own pace. Walk, jog, crawling or run anywhere you’d like—on a local track, through your neighborhood, even on a treadmill.
We ask you only one thing, make sure you take lots of video and pictures to post on our social media. Before AND after you pig out on Thanksgiving!
