2020 Virtual Races

Available Soon:

 Rare Disease Day
Our 5th annual Rare Disease Day, which benefits the National Organization for Rare Disorders and the PCD Foundation, takes place in February.    Along with a custom bib we have some "extras" that we will be sending out to medal registrants on a first come basis.  Some of these "extras" are from the NORD's Running for Rare team.  "Extras" are only available to US registrants and are limited, as are the medals.  Click the registration button to the right to register.

Future Events:

I Run Hard
Our 4th I Run Hard virtual race will probably take place in May.  The medal is based on our butterfly design with running shoes in the top part of the wings.  The colors here are reds, orange and yellows.

Move 4 A Cure 5-5-5
Our 6th annual Move 4 a Cure virtual race will take place during PCD Awareness month, October.  This year's medal is based on a beautiful design from a painting from a PCDer.  We hope to have an image shortly.

What is a Virtual Race?

A virtual race is a race that gives you the flexibility to complete a specific distance and earn a medal,at your convenience.  Our races are done on the honor system, which means you don't have to send us proof of completion to receive your medal.  We give you a time frame (most of them are a month) and an option of several distances.  One of the purposes of our virtual races is to encourage people to be more active.  You don't have to complete the entire distance at one time, just within the specified date range.  You can be inside or outside, walk or run.  You can even do the miles on a treadmill.  There isn't an actual race with a start and finish line.

We create virtual races as a way to raise funds to support our efforts at improving the lives of those living with lung disease and rare diseases.  A portion of our profits are donated to the PCD Foundation unless we are partnering with another organization.

Our Philosophy
We believe in creating high quality medals that have an attractive design.  These are medals we want to have.  We also believe in offering all of this at a reasonable price.  There are a lot of fees involved including cost of the medals, fees from the registration site, and the cost of mailing.  The price you see when you register through Active includes everything except their registration fee.  If you are an active.com member than this fee should be waived.  Even though these virtual races are fundraisers, we want to offer you a quality product at a good value.
