Does that mean that I don’t actually need to run?
Do I need to wear those ridiculous glasses?
Do I need to leave my couch?
These questions were recently asked to me and it reminded me just how new virtual racing is.
Let me get right to the point:
Yes, you must run, jog, walk, skip or whatever mode of travel you wish to do for exercise.
No, you don’t wear any bulky headgear (unless you are into that kind of thing)
Yes, you must leave your couch and physically move your body 3.1 miles for each 5K
Virtual racing is an up and coming sport geared towards runners who want the challenge of running a specific distance, yet it gives runners the freedom to choose when and where they complete the race. In 2016, there were thousands of virtual races completed in the United States. Some runners choose to complete the race on a treadmill, some ran in groups on a local track while their kiddos practiced soccer, others ran on their favorite running trail.
It doesn’t matter where or when you run as long as you complete the task.
The Makin’ Whoopie Challenge is about getting people moving in a fun way while encouraging them to be a little faster and healthier than they were yesterday.
Important Note About Your Medals: Keep them under wraps until it’s time to Make Whoopie. Part of the fun of Makin' Whoopie is the anticipation of unwrapping your surprise. You'll enjoy it all the more when you earn your prize!
Get Out, Explore Lancaster County and Share the Fun!
When the Whoopie Maker is finished with each 5K, we ask them to share their experience with the Whoopie Community by either emailing their photo to Tonia@makinwhoopiechallenge.com or by posting it to our facebook page.
1. All photos must be family friendly
2. Please include #makinwhoopiechallenge in your title as well as how you made whoopie.
Include: “I made Whoopie______”
A recent funny example was:
I made whoopie with my BFF!
I made Whoopie in the rain!
The Makin’ Whoopie Challenge is a fun light-hearted way to get people to explore our Lancaster County Country side as well encourage healthy fitness habits.
