Can’t make it out for race day but still want to participate? Not a problem!

How does Remote Running work?

1) Sign up as a Remote Runner

2) Complete your 8k on your own!

3) You will be mailed the following the week after the race:

  • ceremonial remote racing bib
  • official race shirt
  • finisher’s medal

(Also, this will count toward completing the Run the Bay Challenge)!

What about timing and results?

No official timing necessary for Remote Runners, but we encourage you to time your run, take a photo after you finish, and post your unofficial time with your photo to your social networks of choice and send to us via Facebook or email!
