April 2021 Virtual Races

This post contains affiliate links.

It’s hard to believe I started compiling these lists of virtual races on a whim a year ago and now, I find these lists therapeutic and necessary as they help me focus on a virtual running goal in the absence of in-person races.

See my first list of virtual races from April 2020 and learn why virtual races make such great motivators.

In the running community, more and more races are returning to in-person and there’s some semblance of a life before the pandemic. However, many races are still offering in-person and virtual options, if you’re still not ready to face crowds.  

In mid-March, I received the J&J jab.

And this week, I returned to the gym after a year of lockdown. Not gonna lie. There were many happy tears to be back at the gym.

While I am thrilled to be back at the gym, I’m still not ready for crowds in corralls at races. For that reason, I will still hunt down fun runs and virtual races to share with you. We’re still in this together and not out of the woods yet.

Stay vigilant.

Stay safe.

Stay masked.

Stay six feet apart.

Stay healthy.
