Virtual Half Marathon

Registration Closed

Challenge yourself by running the MTA Virtual Half Marathon this November and earn some serious bling while supporting the podcast!

What is a virtual race?

  • A virtual race is a race that you can run or walk in any location (your favorite running route, on vacation, on the treadmill, on the track, on trails, and while running another race). You have the flexibility and convenience of running it at any time of day and at your own pace.

When will the race take place?

  • During the whole month of November 2019 . You can run it anytime in the month of November. We use the honor system. We will create a pop-up Facebook group for registrants to share photos from their run.

What kind of swag will participants get?

  • Registered participants will receive a totally rad finisher’s medal, a MTA technical running hat, and a half marathon training plan. We will feature your name and photo on our website (unless you don’t want us to). *Hats and medals will be shipped out at the end of November.

This Year’s Finisher’s Medal

The medal this year pays homage to one of our favorite mantas from the early days of the podcast (Episode #32) “I EAT HILLS LIKE CANDY!” The medal features mini-runners who can be moved up and down the mountain.

Totally Rad Technical Running Hat

You will also received our new trucker-style technical running hat made from Boco Running, a Colorado-based company that specializes in trail running gear. It is made from performance woven material, wicking internal sweatband, structured front panels and adjustable plastic snap back closure.

Thanks for Sharing and Supporting the MTA Podcast!

Last year we had we had 375 runners from 46 US states and 19 countries participate. We always enjoy hearing the reports and seeing the photos come in from all over the world.



When will my medal and hat arrive?
Since the medals are made overseas we won’t get them until November if all goes according to plan. We will ship them at the end of November.

Unfortunately we cannot offer a refund for this event. All sales are final.

What Size is the Hat
The hats have an adjustable velcro strap. They fit Trevor’s head, which is on the larger side, haha.

Will the medal grant me special powers?
It might.

Can I run this as part of another race?
Yes. If you happen to have another race in November you can count 13.1 of it towards the MTA Virtual Half.

Will there be a special Facebook group for this event?
Yes, we want you to share photos from your run and see what other runners are up to. We’ll be creating a special Facebook group for all participants and sending out an invite sometime in October.
