About Us

Thank you for visiting! We are a small group of people dedicated to bringing you fun and uplifting virtual race events. Vacation Races owns and operates this awesome Virtual Running Club. If you’re interested in running a traditional race, we think Vacation Races is the best option out there! The 2017 slate of races is second to none. Check it out!

What Is A Virtual Race?

Virtual races are just like traditional races with a shirt, medal, bib, community and fun, but you can run, walk or hike your race wherever you want with whoever you want. Even on a treadmill! Racers report their time and then we send a medal to them for completing the race. What have you got to lose? Try us out – Register now!

A full registration comes with a quality race shirt, bib, medal and the chance to win prizes. Plus, you can opt out of the medal or shirt or bib and pay a little less. In addition, be sure to join the supportive and fun social community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & Pinterest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why you should race with us:

We are a race company that believes that – just like our in-person races – a medal should be earned by finishing the race. You “prove” that you finished by submitting your race time to your account. We’ll send your finisher’s medal after you report your time.

Holland Newton Virtual Running Club Manager holland@virtualrunningclub.com

Once a ‘running for fun’ hater, Holland fell in love with the sport when he used it to help him lose more than 80 pounds (he even wrote a book about it: The Fat Trainer). With a background in personal training and some degrees in advertising and marketing from Mizzou, Virtual Running Club is the perfect fit for Holland. While long runs on the beach are always fun, Holland prefers the mountain trails in Utah.
