My co-conspirator, Lei had a brilliant idea to hold this just like a real race, complete with raffle prizes, shirts, schwag bags, and a nice little after party at a local pub. So, for the last few months we contacted numerous vendors for raffle prizes, ordered medals, picked race routes, collected items for our schwag bags, printed race bibs and raffle tickets, and the list goes on.
It even snowed two days before the event to provide us southern coastal girls with a little snow to really make it a Winter Runnerland.
The day before our local Fleet Feet store let us set up for packet pick-up. Thank you Robin!
Since it's a virtual race and we obviously don't do timing for the group, we had raffle prizes to be drawn at random after the run. We had some really generous people donate a lot of great stuff. Thank you everyone!

We met up at another running store to hit the trail nearby. You had the option of running a half, 10k or 5k. I was signed up for the 10k, but set out to do 10 miles with Randi.
