Get Moving With The Halloween Virtual 5K / 10K / Half Marathon

Halloween Virtual 5K / 10K / Half Marathon Irving TXWant a race without the hassle? The Halloween virtual 5K / 10K / Half Marathon is for you!

Halloween is such a fun time of year. The pumpkins go out on everyone’s doorsteps, the kids get excited about their costumes, and your favorite coffee shop starts selling fall flavored items. With the holiday comes plenty of opportunities to enjoy sweet treats, whether you dip into your kids’ post-trick-or-treat candy stash, whip up some pumpkin-based desserts of your own, or can’t keep your hands off the Halloween baked goods your coworkers bring in.

If you’re looking for a way to motivate yourself to get moving so you can indulge in all the deliciousness this time of year has to offer guilt-free, we have just the thing!

US Road Running is sponsoring a Halloween Virtual 5K / 10K / Half Marathon as part of their 2015 holiday series on Saturday, October 24th, 2015. What does that mean? Basically, you choose the length of race you want to run or walk, and do it wherever you want! At your best on a treadmill? Conquer it at your local gym! Love running through your neighborhood? Have your family set up a finish line at home for you! In essence, it’s all of the fun and motivation of a race without the cost (it’s just $17 to register) or hassle of an early morning start at a far location.

When you finish the race, you’ll be awarded a shirt and a medal for all of your hard work. To learn more or register, head to Active’s website.

We hope you have a great time getting moving with this virtual race!
