November 8th, 2019

Earlier this week, we announced the launch of the RunNB Virtual 5K. Here are five reasons why you should join the fun and run a Virtual Race!

5 Reasons Why You Should Run a Virtual Race

1. To Run More!

One good reason to sign-up for a virtual race is to motivate you to run more!  Running has numerous benefits including helping you feel better, be healthier, and even lose weight.

If you’ve never signed up for a race before and want to without the crowds or having to run at a specific pace, a virtual race is the perfect opportunity to do so.

2. For the Bling

If you run for the bling, virtual races usually have the best bling and medals for you to show all your friends and family!

Virtual races are a great way to collect medals for your accomplishments and your runs!

3. Race in your favorite Place

Virtual Races provide you with the opportunity to pick your own favourite course that you have run before and loved!

4. Avoid Crowds and time pressures

Large crowds have their draw also, but sometimes it’s better to get away and allow yourself to run without the pressure of other participants. Virtual races give you the flexibility to run on your own time at your own pace!

It allows you to focus more on your own personal, virtual run.

5. Personal Achievement / Motivating Yourself

Virtual Races is a great way to set a goal to motivate yourself to run and accomplish what you’ve set out to do.  It’s a great way to feel good about achieving something.  When you complete a race, the feeling is indescribable as sometimes your goals may have felt impossible before.
