#LVKickOffNight – Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Kick Off Night Virtual Run

Leave a comment

I’m not a fan of most virtual runs. You know, the ones where you go out and do a run and then someone mails you a medal for it. I don’t think there needs to be a reward for everything you do in life. The reward should be the great feeling you get after completing a run. With that said, I just did my first official virtual race. This one was a little different though.
Las Vegas Kick Off Night
The folks at Competitor created the Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Kick Off Night Virtual Run as a promotion for the Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half. You have between March 18th and April 2nd to sign up, run 5K, and submit proof of your run. In addition to the virtual run there are several hosted runs at various local running shops throughout the country. All the information is on their site.

So what do you get for doing the virtual run? What could cause someone who doesn’t believe in them to take part in one? A free shirt for the first 2,500 to submit their proof! Okay, that wasn’t my motivation. You are also entered to win an entry into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half! If you’re interested in signing up, there’s still plenty of time.

Here’s my proof on Strava.
