VIRTUAL FAQs


WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN?


A virtual run is a fairly new trend that is a running or walking event, run on your own terms.  You get to pick the starting line!  It could be your neighborhood, favorite trail (keep your distance) or even the dusty treadmill in your basement.  You get to pick your distance (12K, 5K, 2K, or even a 20yd Diaper Dash for the wee ones).  And we'll all be running "together" during Sound to Narrows week, Saturday, June 13- June 20.  

DO I HAVE TO RUN AT A CERTAIN TIME?


No.  Just run/walk any time that is convenient for you between June 13-20.  No early morning start times.  No parking issues.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?


Anyone.  Anywhere.  Period.  

WHEN IS THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE?


Online registration runs May 1 - June 1.  Register HERE.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN MY RACE REGISTRATION?


Glad you asked.  The biggest bonus of registering for this year's Virtual S2N, is that you'll be a huge part of our 48 year history. No other time has our race been cancelled since it's inception in 1973.  You'll be able to tell your grandkids that in 2020 you acted as the race director for your very own S2N.  You were the course marshal, timer, water station volunteer, and first place winner!  Oh, you'll also receive a collectible neck gaiter, runner/walker bib, and finisher certificate.  You can even upload your results and see how you compare to other S2N week racers.  

WHEN WILL MY ITEMS BE SHIPPED?


We'll be mailing out gaiters and bibs the week before race week.  You should receive before June 13 at the mailing address provided.  We will not be shipping internationally.

WHAT IF I ALREADY REGISTERED?


If you registered earlier in the year, you're IN.  We've already moved your original distance over to our Virtual Run/Walk.  And even though Sound to Narrows registrations are nonrefundable and nontransferable, we'd like to offer those of you pre-registered a 50% discount to be used in 2021 as a thanks for hanging with us during this turbulent time.  An email will be sent later this year when next year's registration is open.

DOES THIS EVENT SUPPORT A CHARITY?


Thanks for asking!  And yes, we're happy to share that all proceeds will benefit MultiCare's COVID-19 Response Fund in 2020.  We've always been about health and wellness for our South Sound community.  Now's our chance to support those most vulnerable and those on the frontlines.


CAN I RUN/WALK THE ORIGINAL COURSE?


While it would be terrific if we could all meet at Vassaut Park to begin our races, we are discouraging any type of gathering of groups.  As we will not be providing any support resources, we ask that you refrain from running or walking the 12k, 5k, and 2k courses.  Let's stand together in solidarity during this worldwide pandemic and support those helping make our lives run smoothly by clearing the Sound to Narrows streets.  We thank you!
