Virtual Racing

As the racing industry continues to be affected by today's current health scare, the Endurance Race Series, understands we need to be there to support the runner in providing an outlet to keep them active and engaged. We are excited to announce that we have officially opened up a virtual race option to our 2020 Summer Season. The virtual option is now available for all our individual races AND our Season Pass registration options.

What does this mean? As a runner you can sign up for a virtual option to any race, and run the distance you signed up for at a time and location that works within your schedule and at your pace. 

What do you receive with the virtual option? All runners that sign up for the virtual option will receive the race finishers medal, race shirt (if selected), and race bib.

How do you receive the shirt, medal, and bib? We will offer a pre-race packet pickup before each of our physical races, and you can pick up your packet then. If you are out of the area or unable to make it to the packet pickup, we will mail your packet. 

You signed up for a virtual season pass or an individual race, when will your packet be available or sent? Medals, shirts , and bibs, for each of our individual races will be available or sent out the weekend of the physical event. Meaning, if you signed up for a virtual option to our July 19th, Black Hawk race, your packet would not be available or sent until the 18th or 19th of July.

You signed up for a physical race option already, can you switch to a virtual option or vice versa? Yes, if you know you cannot make the physical race, or you are signed up for a virtual race and now want to attend, we do offer a transfer. Because of the difference in registration fee, there is a $10-$15 upgrade fee to the physical race, while any downgrade to a virtual option does not allow for a refund in the difference. All transfer requests of this nature must be outside our 2 week policy. Any request within the 2 weeks, no transfer will be allowed. If you would like to request a transfer please email  

What is the cost for a virtual race? Virtual race pricing is set up on a tiered pricing structure like our normal registration fees. The Virtual Half will always be $15 less than the physical half, the 10K will be $10 less than the physical 10K, and the 5K will be $5 cheaper than the physical 5K.
