Run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill. The beauty in a virtual race is you get to run your own race and at your own pace. Connect your device to the app and it will automatically sync you to the challenge. We will be there with you along the way, with sponsors cheering for you at every milestone. After completing your personal race, celebrate by submitting a photo at the finish line on the app or to rgates@jaindy,org.
