How Does It Work?

  • Register for the race.
    • Find the registration link, click on it and complete the registration process.
    • Everyone registers for the virtual race, any distance.
    • After you register, you can complete any race distance or discipline, including multiple race distances.
  • Complete your race and enjoy yourself.
    • You can complete inside or outside (or a combo), and anywhere in the world.
    • Go and do the race, and be sure you track your race time(s).
  • Log your Results
    • Go back to the race page, and find the Log Your Results Link. Click on that link and complete the form.
    • If you did multiple race distances, please complete the form for each race distance or discipline.
    • If you did multiple races, please complete the results form for each race event you completed.
  • Receive Your Swag (which comes a week or so after the last day of the event date)
    • We will order swag for everyone once the event ends. We wait until the last day of the event to order, so that means you will get your swag a week or so after the end of the event. If the event goes from the 1st to the 30th of the month, you will get your swag about a week into the next month.
    • NOTE: We only order swag for the exact number of people who register, so we wait until everyone registers. Then it takes us about a week to get the swag and mail it out to you. So please be patient, and know that your swag is on its way.

Beast 3-Race Challenge

  • You will run each of the 3 races separately. You will start 1-mile and finish it. Then have a break until the 5k starts. You will start the 5k and finish it. You have another break until the 10k starts. Then you start the 10k and finish it. 
  • Each race will start on time. You will have a limited amount of time to finish each individual race before the next race starts. You will have the following times to complete each race: 1-mile = 20 minutes; 5k = 40 minutes & 10k = 90 minutes. Should you not finish in the allotted time you may continue racing, but your time will not be adjusted. This means that if your 5k takes longer than 40 minutes, that is okay. You finish the 5k, and start the 10k immediately. But your 10k time will have started with everyone else, and the timers will not be able to adjust that time. You must also finish the 10k in the allotted time regardless of when you start. We ask that you try to finish all 3 races (1-mile, 5k & 10k) inside the designated times.  
  • Athletes may use the same bib and timing chip for each race. You DO NOT need to change bibs or chips. This is a change from 2019, so please note you keep and use the same bib and timing chip for all 3 races. 
  • Racers will get a Beast Finisher Medal (medals may be limited so check the specific event site for more details) and a race medal for the specific event.
