What is a Remote Runner?


You complete your race on your own around your home, at the gym on a treadmill, or even with a group of running buddies – essentially you can compete anywhere in the world! Our races come with no time pressure – your pace is individual to you and you will earn your medal for completing whatever your speed. You can even walk our races without the fear of crowds at the beginning or the point in your race when you really could do with that 2-second pause. Each of our races has dates to complete allowing lots of flexibility to complete your challenge.

TEAMS, FITNESS CLUBS, RUNNING CLUBS’s REMOTE RUNNERS® program is designed for running clubs and groups who wish to orchestrate running events in their communities without the expense that larger events must absorb. No Permits, no restrictions... Just schedule your run with your group, use your GPS watch to time and post results and we will provide your group in advance of your race with 6 top overall male(3) and female(3) recognition pins. (Included with all team and group registrations over 6 participants)

CHARITY: Select a charity for your group and we will add it to our list to promote nationally.
