However, if you have a child running with you and you are not recording his/her time, you are welcome to purchase an additional youth t-shirt.

Virtual Race FAQs
Have Questions? We Have Answers.
Simply put, a virtual race is a race that is…virtual! Traditional races are great fundraising events for nonprofits and charities alike, but given the current social distancing recommendations, some organizations might be hesitant to host an in-person event. Enter the virtual race! Let’s be honest, most of us have gained a bit of a quarantine bump. A virtual race is a great way to get back in the action, while supporting your community.
Once you register for the race, there are no refunds. Even if you decide not to run, you are supporting a worthy cause. All money raised goes towards Impression 5 & Michigan Youth Arts.
