What is a Virtual Race?
The Air Force Marathon virtual events are open to everyone and include all race distances; marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K, Tailwind Trot 1K Kids' Race, and both Fly! Fight! Win! Challenge Series. You may complete your virtual Air Force Marathon race any day between September 1st-30th, 2020. You may run, walk, or run/walk your full distance wherever you want – around your neighborhood, at a local park, or on a treadmill. If possible, be sure to track your race with runcoach, Strava, Garmin, Fitbit, or another GPS-tracking app that will confirm your mileage and time. After your race, we encourage you to submit your finish time to the results page but this will not be required.
All participants who register for a virtual event will receive their bib, race shirt, commemorative patch (pictured here), and finisher’s medal. Fly! Fight! Win! Challenge participants will also receive a fourth finisher’s medal and quarter zip. We will attempt to have an in-person pickup for local participants and for non-local participants and those unable to pick up in person, we will mail your race amenities to the address you provided at registration.
As a reminder, if you had registered for an Air Force Marathon race prior to June 9, 2020 you must log into your
and select your option before the Sunday, June 28, 2020 deadline. If you do not make a selection by this date you will automatically be entered into the 2020 virtual race. If you have already selected an option but want to switch to a different option you may do so as many times as you'd like before the deadline.
