Get in Gear Events

2021 Virtual Event

Virtual Event Information

At this time, we are planning to conduct the 2021 event as a virtual event.  The permissions and protocol that would allow us to launch a physical, in-person event has not yet been determined by state and local authorities.

We do hope to convert to a hybrid event and welcome a field of participants in person. We will communicate the details regarding our 2021 Virtual Get in Gear as they are developed regarding the shirt, swag, bib number, finisher certificates and age group results that will be part of your registration fee for the 2021 Get in Gear.

A digital bib number will be sent to you and it is your option to download and print this for your virtual Get in Gear run.

If you need more information on your virtual bib number and results you can contact john@mtecresults.com for further assistance.

Completing Your Virtual Event

You will run the route of your choosing to complete your virtual distance. This could be around your house, a nearby lake, a favorite running trail or a local track. Please follow safe COVID guidelines as communicated by state and local authorities and health departments regarding gathering with additional people.

There are no timing chips for the virtual events; you will time yourself with a personal device (GPS watch, phone, stopwatch).

We ask that our virtual participants do not run the course on April 24 at the same time that our in person race is being held between the hours of 8:00 am and 11:00 am. Please be mindful to help reduce crowding and help us be in compliance with our permit guidelines.

Submitting Your Results

You will be receiving an email from Mtec, our timing and scoring partner, that will provide you with the link to submit your virtual Get in Gear event results. The timeline for this will start on Saturday, April 10 and end on Saturday, April 24. The scoring will be done after April 24 to determine age graded results that will be posted.
