There are no parking problems. No crowds. No long portable potty lines. No start gun or nervous, pre-race chitchat with other participants. Not even an official starting line. Participants sign up, pay the registration fee and select their distance. Then they choose their own starting line — a treadmill or a neighborhood street. They run, jog, walk, or bike the race distance before the race deadline. After the virtual race, runners email their times and are then mailed a finisher's t-shirt.
