Register for the Virtual Four Mile Fun Run & Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to September. I don't know about you, but I am welcoming autumn with open arms! It can't get here fast enough! Goodbye stifling heat! Hello cool fall running!

If you follow Running with Ollie Blog on Facebook you have probably seen my posts about the upcoming virtual four mile run and scavenger hunt. I've been working hard around the clock (except when I am getting my required 8-9 hours a night of sleep) pulling everything together for the event and giveaway.

The virtual run starts 9/21 and will run (pun intended) through 10/5. If you want to participate, but are like me, and realize there is a very good chance you will forget all about it by 9/21, please register so that I can keep you in the loop!

11 Sponsors. 14 Prizes. 14 Winners. No Entry Fee. Fun and Free!

What is a virtual run, you say?
A virtual run can be completed at any location! Run it on the streets in your neighborhood, on the treadmill, or even at an local organized race. Anywhere! You run in your own area and report back online to join in on the fun with hundreds of runners all over the country. You can find my guide to virtual racing here, everything you need to know about entering & participating in a virtual race.

Run the BIG 4-0 virtual 4.0 mile fun run or walk.
Run (walk or crawl) four miles wherever you are to virtually participate in the Big 4-0 fun run. There are no rules, no pace requirements, no pressure. Virtual runs are the best! There are no parking hassles and no long lines at the porta potty. Just get out there and get four miles in however you can! The winners aren't the fastest runners. The winners are the luckiest (via random drawing).

And what's this about a scavenger hunt? 
Well, I have to leave something for you to look forward to! All that I will say for now is that you will take pictures of things you see along your run for the scavenger hunt and share them on social media with a designated hashtag. All the details regarding the scavenger hunt will be revealed in the 09/21 post at the start of the event. Don't worry, it will be voluntary, but really fun and easy. You're going to love it!

You can use the below form to register for the event. You can also register here. There is no obligation if you change your mind later or something comes up and you can't participate.

So what do you think? Are you in? Preregister now! Ollie is ready to go!!

Once you run your race, be sure to enter the RAFFLECOPTER giveaway here.

  1. This sounds like fun! I love the #runchat scavenger hunts, so I'm interested to see what you come up with!

    1. Thanks! I didn't know anything about the run chat scavenger hunts! how fun! I looked them up. How fun! My scavenger hunt finds are a little less specific. I really wanted to just make it easy enough and fun enough that everyone would want to participate!

  2. Sounds like fun! I've never done one of these before (haven't gone running in years), but this'll be a fun way to change things up! :P Thanks for putting this together!

  3. I'm in! I don't know if I can run due to my knee but I can power walk it if that is alright. Does that still count?

  4. I'm registered! Elijah is ready too! :)
