Virtual Things To Know!
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A Virtual Race is a race you can do at any location, using your preferred pace, outside on your favorite route or trail, or even inside on a treadmill if you are running. Our NorthShore Inline Virtual Races can be done alone or with a group of friends. Train and stay active, then get rewarded with awesome medals and swag.
WHAT OUR VIRTUAL RACERS GET!
Each of our virtual finishers will receive these items in the mail. 1: Your very own 2022 finisher medal just like the one at our physical race. 2: your custom 2022 race bib so you can feel like you are part of the action. 3: your very own 2022 NorthShore Inline marathon finisher shirt just like the one the in-person competitors receive! 4: a sense of accomplishment knowing that you accomplished this! 5: The feeling of pride knowing that a portion of your registration fee was donated to Northern Lights Foundation, which provides financial support to families with children who have life-threatening illnesses.
HOW SHOULD YOU RECORD YOUR TIME?
Our team doesn't have an official way for our virtual racers to record their time and utilize the honor system when submitting said time. With that being said we recommend either using your mobile phone or a smartwatch as there are many apps that can track your route.
CAN YOU DO YOUR VIRTUAL RACE ANYWHERE?
YES! You can skate, roller ski, run or walk on a road, bike path, trail or treadmill of your choice. You can do your virtual NSIM Race alone or with a group of friends. It’s all about setting a goal to complete the race distance.
SHARE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT!
When you complete your NSIM Virtual Race, wear your hard-earned medal around your neck and take a selfie. Then, share the selfie and your accomplishment with your friends and our NSIM community using the social media platform of your choice and tagging our races with the hashtag #NSIM2022
