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!

We are so excited to team with Virtual Run World for several amazing races! Check out our Miles for Mike 1M, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2 race and get this awesome 3D 4 inch medal! These are the words from the artist of this medal:
For those of you who haven’t yet heard, my husband, Mike, suffered a massive brain bleed and stroke on November 14, 2016. He was airlifted to Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, and then transported to a rehabilitation center near our home until the end of December. Mike has a long road to recovery, working with therapists multiple times a week. The priority in my heart is to care for Mike and provide the best chance for recovery possible for him. Mike will need to learn how to stand, walk and talk again.
Mike and I are Graphic Designers, artists and runners. Our art is what makes Virtual Run World stand out amongst our competitors. We know how important our customers are and we want to continue providing quality artwork for you.
I designed the Miles for Mike medal in Mike’s honor using his artwork and sculpture. In June 2016, Mike was excited to have one of his sculptures bronzed, Lean and Mean, a T-Rex skeleton sculpture. Influenced by his sculpture, the Miles for Mike medal is a 3D T-Rex skeleton and features his painting, The Hunt, on the full color dye sublimation lanyard. Even the font is based on Mike’s penmanship.
We hope and pray that you will join us in the Miles for Mike virtual run by purchasing the medal and earning it by completing miles in Mike’s honor. We also ask for your support and prayers for Mike as he works toward once again walking, running and creating art!
Plus, we’ll be donating at least 15% from every registration will go towards Mike’s medical costs and recovery.
Mike also has a Go Fund Me page set up. Donations are greatly appreciated!
