This store contains race medals for our current races and from our past virtual races, which are on clearance. We also have some apparel and other products. When you sign up for a race that occurs later in the year, your medal and bib will ship a couple of weeks before the event starts. You can complete your race before you get your medal and bib, or you can wait until you have them. It's totally up to you.
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Running and walking on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5Ks, 10K, half marathon and more!

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Wait, wrong theme, wrong movie. We need to talk about running and pirates. So…are you a good pirate or a bad pirate? We ran on the beach in Ocean Shores, Washington recently which got me thinking about sailing the dark seas, fighting the wind, the waves and an occasional drunken Kraken. Occasionally, I am a pirate when I run, but mostly some sort of superhero. But we were near the ocean, so pirate it is, and a good running pirate I is…aargh. This nautical themed medal is to inspire you to fight through the difficulties while reaching your mileage goals. It’s a pirate medallion, made of authentic simulated real Aztec gold. One of 882 identical pieces that had been delivered in a stone chest to Hernando Cortez, the Spanish conquistador himself. At least, that is the story I heard. I know there have been many times that I have been traveling down a pathway when I run right into a giant whale blocking the way. I am sure it happens to you all the time. Then it’s decision time, up, over or worse – through the whale, to the next mile on my journey. Mile 20 has been especially difficult in past adventures and is where I meet my running nemesis – the Kraken. The Kraken wraps my legs in heavy slimy tentacles, suction thingies pulling at my aching calves, dragging me down to Davie Jones’ locker or to the denizens of the deep. Sometimes, a liberal application of Glide on your legs will help in these situations. I fight through the wall and move on.
When I need direction or motivation I talk to the whale. You too can talk whale. Flick his tail, and give him a spin (the whale doesn’t actually spin). The whale will confide in you and provide your daily run heading (nautical term). The whale is never wrong, so don’t argue with him for he has a very sensitive nature. Once the whale provides me a compass heading I am off and running – to feel the freedom of the sea where I have no fear of the depths and a great fear of shallow living. Again the miles give me life.
“For too long I’ve been parched of thirst and unable to quench it. Too long I’ve been starving to death and haven’t died. I feel nothing. Not the wind on my face nor the spray of the sea.” ~ Barbossa
By now, we should all have arrived at that very special place. Spiritually, ecumenically, grammatically. Savvy? And have we reached an accord? Do pirates and running go together? Aye! We running pirates think so.
“This is either madness… or brilliance.” ~ Will Turner
“It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.” ~ Jack Sparrow
Still the guns and stow ’em, signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port – sail for the horizon, for you can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.
