BENEFITING: Marathon High
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2016
Join us for the 4th Annual Marathon High Virtual Half-Marathon! The MH Virtual will be held from September 1-10. That means you have 10 days to complete all 13.1 miles -- do it all in one day or spread it out, your choice.
MH Virtual 2016 NET PROCEEDS: Net proceeds from the MH Virtual will go directly to fund students in the upcoming Season 6 of Marathon High. That's what makes this Virtual so awesome -- the funds you raise go directly into a program that positively impacts our future generation and the community!
VIRTUAL HALF-MARATHON: Supporters from all over the world will run/walk/swim/bike 13.1 miles over the course of 10 days to support the teens in Marathon High. You have the flexibility to participate wherever, whenever is most convenient for you as long as you do it between September 1-10!
Once you register, you will receive:
-- Marathon High Asics tank (add this to your registration for an additional $20)
-- Virtual Half-Marathon race bib to customize with your name and print out
-- Custom MH medal designed by one of our students
In addition, you have the opportunity to create a team or join an existing one. Team captains who recruit at least 15 team members receive a free Asics tank, and there are fun challenges for all teams including:
-- most creative team name
-- most creative team photos
-- team that raises the most money
-- team with the most members
HOW TO REGISTER:

All of your friends can join your team even if they live 3,000 miles away! Simply Fundraise: Don’t want to do 13.1, but you still want to support Marathon High? No problem! Simply create a fundraising page and get started!
TIPS AND IDEAS FOR YOUR VIRTUAL HALF-MARATHON:
Take a photo of yourself with your race bib before, during or after your Virtual, tag "MarathonHighVirtual" and share on social media with friends, family and the Marathon High community. Use different apps like Google Maps, Map My Run, Nike Running, etc., to determine a 13.1 mile route near you to run, walk, bike, hike, swim or whatever you like! You can do this in a group, with a friend or by yourself. It’s up to you.
Maximize your fundraising impact! Ask your friends and family to sponsor your Virtual Race. Ask them to donate per mile or to donate a flat amount for the total 13.1. Please also keep in mind that there’s no set amount for sponsorship, so your friends and family can sponsor you at any level that’s feasible for them. You can also choose to pay more than the registration fee as an extra donation. The more money we raise, the more teenagers we can serve!
Please join us in this incredible opportunity to raise awareness for Marathon High, all while supporting the teenagers in our community.
Be sure to share your experience by using #MarathonHighVirtual on any social media platform! Happy running!
