How does a virtual run work?
– It’s simple! You complete the required distance at some point on Thanksgiving Day (11/26/2020) anywhere you would like.  You can do the run on a treadmill or anywhere outdoors, we only ask that you respect the guidelines that have been set forth for social distancing and please do not run in groups.  You can track the time that it takes to complete your distance using the treadmill, a GPS watch or ANY activity tracking app (examples include but are not limited to: Runkeeper, Nike Run Club, Strava, etc. etc.) and will receive an email by end of day on Tuesday 11/24 with instructions on how to submit your time into the live results after completing your virtual run.

Race Bib & Fork Pickup:
– Fleet Feet Poughkeepsie (1895 South Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601) will be hosting curbside pickup for the bibs and forks starting on Friday 11/20. An email will be sent to all registered participants by end of day on Wednesday 11/18 with additional details regarding the pickup.
