The Matrix Virtual Race
June 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - June 28, 2020 @ 8:00 pm
The Matrix Virtual Race is a VIRTUAL race organized by Timberline Events LLC | Finish Line Timing (the race directors of the Wild West Relay and Flaming Foliage Relay) to raise funds to help support our local animal shelters and rescue groups while you work towards your personal fitness goals. Participating in a virtual race is a great way to motivate each other, or for a family to do together, while respecting social distancing. Run, walk, or bike your chosen distance, at your own pace, anytime between June 25th and 28th.
RUN, WALK, OR BIKE TO HELP OUR ANIMAL SHELTERS & RESCUES
Businesses and non-profit organizations have been hit hard financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this virtual run is to raise money for animal shelters and rescue groups. $10 of your registration fee will be sent to the animal shelter of your choice.
Run/Walk: 1 Mile, 5k, 10k, Half Marathon
Bike: 5 Miles, 12 miles, 24 miles, 50 miles
Anywhere! Trail, road, cross country style – your choice. Preferably outdoors, but your treadmill or bike trainer works too.
You choose the date to run/bike your virtual race between June 25th and 28th. Once you have completed your run/ride, you can enter your results along with an image of your watch, GPS, phone, or bicycle computer, and a selfie or race photo (optional) to The Matrix Virtual Race on our results website, FLTResults.com. You can enter your results starting on June 25th through to 8:00 PM on June 28th. After all the results are tabulated, you’ll be able to print a finisher certificate (after 8 PM). We invite you to share any photos of your virtual run or bike, or your pet, on the The Matrix Virtual Race Facebook Group page.
PARTICIPANT SAFETY AND ETIQUETTE
- Avoid crowded routes – choose a less busy time of day.
- Be sure to keep – and allow others to have – a six foot distance.
- Wear a mask! You are exercising, thus breathing harder. The water vapor you exhale (with germs and virus) can carry 20 feet or more. Do your neighbors a solid and protect them and wear a mask.
Through June 16th, the entry fee is $35 (no additional fee for online registration). After June 16th, the fee goes up to $40.
Your entry fee includes a bib, race shirt, and finisher medal. If you register prior to June 16th, your bib, shirt, and finisher medal will be shipped to you by Monday June 22nd. If you register after June 16th, your bib and finisher medal will be mailed to you when you register. You shirt will be mailed to you after the second printing the week of June 29th.
