Are you looking for a race close to home? Maybe some more motivation to bump up your training? Well here is a great virtual race with great swag and benefits a great cause! The Swagtastic Virtual Races! For those of you not familiar with a virtual race you run the miles on your own, but are part of a great online support system.
The Swagtastic Virtual Races benefit Medals4Mettle. Medals4Mettle is an all-volunteer organization that collects earned and donated finisher’s medals from marathoners, half marathoners, and triathletes, and presents them to children and adults facing serious illnesses or dehabilitating injuries. The funds raised from the Swagtastic Vitual Races are being directed to help cover the costs of presenting medals to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. This virtual race is their largest national fundraiser. For more information about Medals4Mettle visit their website here: Medals4Mettle.org
