With races being canceled due to the current pandemic, virtual races are gaining popularity. In virtual races, runners race on their own schedule, at whatever location they choose, then log in and record their results. Runners can still feel part of a larger group even though they are running alone. Many races also support various charities, giving runners a great purpose to run. We have compiled a list of virtual races in Utah that could be fun to sign up with friends or family:
