As a reminder, your bib is your entry into the event and other activities. You must wear it on your front and on the outermost layer of clothing you will be participating in. Your bib is also your timing tag and you will notice it on the back of your bib. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE. Also, please be careful not to fold, bend, or wrinkle your bib to prevent damage to the timing tag. The timing tags are disposable and do not need to be returned.
Are you are registered for any or all series but unable to participate in person in one or more of the RunDenver Series events and don't want to miss out on the cool swag? No sweat! You can participate virtually to complete our epic custom combined RunDenver medal! We just need you to follow a few easy steps (please note, this is not for those of you that are doing the whole series virtually).  

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Tell us which event(s) you want to run virtually via this private page. You can sign up for multiple all at once, or come back multiple times and sign up for each one individually. You must signup no later than the start time of each event (8 a.m.) on event day.
  2. Select if you will pick up your swag at the next packet pickup, at the next event, or you can have it mailed to you for a small shipping and handling fee (you may also pick it up at the advanced packet pickup for on Dec 5th).
  3. Run, walk, skip your event virtually when it works best for you, but to be included in the official results, you must complete the event from Dec 6 to Dec 13).
  4. Bask in your awesomeness!

General Process
  • Step 1: create an account with our partners at SoDiSp.com (click here)The first step is to create an account. You can either enter a username and password or connect using one of the available direct integrations to popular fitness platforms.
  • Already have a sodisp account? Simply login with the same authentication method you used when creating an account to continue with step 2

  • Step 3: start logging activities - Once you are connected with your event you can start entering activities. You can open the Connections section in your profile to connect your sodisp account with popular GPS devices and apps. Doing this has the benefit of automatically syncing your activities straight from the watch/app into your virtual event with no manual steps in between, or you can also do manual entry of your run/walk if you don't have, or don't want to use a GPS watch or app.
HOW MOTIGO WORKS (for both in-person and virtual)
Setup prior to your run/walk
  • Download the Motigo App. (Currently available for iOS and Android)
  • Sign up for a free account
  1. Allow Motigo to “access your location” - it needs to be able to do this so the messages play at the proper mileage points.
  • Choose "Race." On the next screen, pick "Select Event"then choose your “Distance”.
  • Share Event with your own personal link: Invite your friends and family to pre-record cheers that will play during your race.  They can download the Motigo App OR visit the Motigo website www.getmotigo.com and “Record Cheers” via web!

On the day of your Race/Run (in-person or virtual)
  • Before your run, open Motigo then click “Start Event” and you're good to go (make sure cellular and GPS is enabled for Motigo).
  • Turn on any other music or other fitness apps you typically use. Motigo won't interfere with them.
  • Start moving! The messages will come on periodically, and your other audio that's playing will automatically lower in volume.
  • When you're done, press "Finish Event." All your messages will be archived in “My Past Events” where you will have them to listen to again and again.
