In these trying times, runners still gotta run.

Activitynut Foundation brings you a series of timed "Solo Runs" using Race Joy to provide a unique race experience.  

  • Shirt and Series Medal are optional and can be purchased separately.
  • Multiple courses are available.
  • Run at your own schedule on a pre-defined course.
  • Compete against other runners on the same course.
  • Repeat the course for a PR, and a chance to improve your placement.
  • Age Group awards at the end of series.

This race requires using the Race Joy app on an iPhone or Android device.  The app displays the route, gives audio cues at points during the event, and allows you to post your finish time.

Solo run -vs- virtual run
Run as often as you like...

For variety, run each of the courses in the series and collect a charm for each distance, or choose a distance that works best with your training plan.

Repeat the same course and track your progress as you work on your PR time.  (separate registration required)

Age Group awards in 10 year increments will be announced at the end of the series for each course.

Courses and Shirt/Medal sold separately

Because some runners will want to run multiple courses, and some runners will not want to pay for a shirt.medal, they are sold separately.

Be sure to order a shirt/medal if you want both.
