Virtual Half Marathon

Challenge yourself by running a half marathon this November and earn some serious bling while supporting the MTA Podcast! Scroll down to see this year’s ‘medal reveal video’.

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?

  • The official day will be November 19th, 2018 (Angie’s birthday). But 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 “Release the Kraken” finishers 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) and we will be releasing a special podcast episode in conjunction with the race. *Hats and medals will be shipped out at the end of November.

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.

Do I have to run on November 19th?
No. You can run the half marathon when it is convenient for you. You will still get a medal and hat. If you happen to have another race that day you can count 13.1 of it towards the MTA Virtual Half.

How do I register more than one person?
You will need to register each person separately. That way will will have a separate transaction record for each participant and their full name and mailing address.

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.
