A virtual race can be run (or walked!) anytime and anywhere (within the events specified timeframe), even indoors on a treadmill. Participants in the Rancho 5k (El Vaquero Race) can earn a great medal and shirt for themselves while raising money to help support our great track program.
Simply register for this years virtual run, complete the distance anytime between March 15th -31st, anywhere you desire (even on a treadmill!), and upload your finish time to our website. You can then pick up your race shirt and medal if you are local to us, or we will mail them to you if you cannot.
Yes! Young or old, fast or slow – we encourage participants of all ages and ability levels.
We call our events “runs,” but walkers are certainly welcome!
If you can't walk, feel free to rollerskate, ride your bike, or even crawl if you must.
We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. The most accurate way to do this is by using a Running GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices that you may be interested in. Please see this Best Free Run-Tracking Apps page for some suggestions.
You can also use a regular watch to track your time. Or even an hour glass or sun dial, if you have one 🙂
