Quad Cities Virtual Races

What is unique about them?

There are specified paths for the races.
Your may run the race or races any time and as many times as you like to get your best time possible. Think of it like video game scoring!
Age groups will be added once the numbers grow!
Your time is good for six months. After six months, your time disappears. If you run it again and share a new time entry, the clock starts over.
There will be age goups for the Vandeer Mile, Duck Creek Three Mile, and the four mile combination of the one and three miles times.



The running is REAL!

The racing is virtual.

Think about a good time to run the races. The Duck Creek Park Trailway is dark after hours. Running alone at night is never a good idea. Think about the best time when there is the least amount of traffic.
Run with partner or small group.
Listen or feel for the buzz on your GPS device at the one mile or three mile before stopping it.
The QC Virtual Races are excellent training for long distance racing.
