The details are a little confusing so we wanted to send a few Frequently Asked Questions to help you have a great experience with your Virtual Run.

  • When does my OC Virtual Run take place? Runners can run the virtual run anytime and anywhere between May 1st and November 7th. You must submit your results to receive your swag.
  • When will I receive my Virtual Package? Beginning May 7th, packages will be shipped 1-2 business days after you submit your results. You should receive your package no later than 10 days after your results have been posted. If you would like to receive your package before you run, please email to expedite shipping.
    We hope these virtual options have provided you with opportunities to challenge yourself and have fun!
