Virtual races are BACK and we are kicking off with this super cute MRTT/SRTT medal that actually FLIPS!!!
The virtual doesn’t start until April so go ahead and secure your race medal if you want one – otherwise hang tight!
Here’s how it works:
- If you would like a medal, you can pre-order one by clicking HERE. Medals are due to arrive in March. If you are part of a local MRTT chapter – check with your leader first before ordering. Some chapters do group orders and hold local group runs for the event! Our medals are 3″ diecast medals with a 1.5″ sublimated neck ribbon!! Oh and they SPIN!
- In the month of April, grab a gal-pal or join your chapter and run or walk a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon. You can do it all at once or spread it out over the month if you need to!
- We will have race bibs you can print here closer to the virtual date so check back and stay tuned.
- After you are done, you will come back here to report your race time (although prizes are NOT determined based on time! They are drawn at random).
And that’s it!!! It’s just a fun way to keep you moving!
This year we will have some extra fun challenges!! Stay tuned for more info!
**Please note this is a PRE-ORDER and medals will not begin shipping until March 2019 – this date is approximate as Chinese New Year delays production and shipping.
Last date to pre-order is Feb 7th, 2019
All sales are final. Please check with your local chapter before purchasing to see if they are purchasing with a group order.
Yep, you read that right, this 3″ die cast medal with sublimated custom neck ribbon has a little spinner part in the center that flips from MRTT to SRTT to look like our car magnets!
Wait, so what exactly do I do with a virtual medal? Is there an actual race?
A virtual race is where YOU choose the distance and location, run on your own time, run solo or with a group of friends (we encourage friends!), and then you report back to us for a chance to win prizes! All prizes and “winners” are drawn at random so there is NO point in lying on your time :) Just run. Have fun. Tell us when you are done. Hey – that rhymed! Be sure to check with your local MRTT chapter to see if they are running as a group or doing group medal orders!!
You DO know the deal with “flipping” a magnet right?? No?? Well then here’s the deal:
If you are ever out and about… a parking lot…. a neighborhood…. anywhere really – and see someone with a MRTT/SRTT magnet on the back of the car (we have a few versions so keep your eyes peeled) just CAREFULLY* (please see note on this) remove the magnet and flip it upside down to let that member know there was another MRTT in the area!! BUT – here’s the most fun part…. The person that got flipped now has to run or work out BEFORE they can flip the car magnet back over!!! See? It’s like giving them a little boost of motivation and encouragement!!
*USE EXTREME CAUTION when flipping a magnet. All magnet owners should remove their magnet every so often to clean any dirt and debris behind their magnet and on their car. Magnets in extreme conditions such as heat or cold could have a negative effect on the car paint so please make sure your magnet doesn’t damage your car. This goes for ANY magnet on your vehicle so consider this your friendly reminder. When putting a magnet on your car make sure the area has been cleaned and dried beforehand. If you start to flip someone’s magnet and it’s not moving, feel free to snap a pic and post it in your local chapter to show you “virtually” flipped someone!
