Virtual Race Plan

 

Our Community Racing Challenge is comprised of three components that all contribute to the competition for the Virtual Champ Cup.

  1. Fun challenges to get teams connected and excited
  2. A 30-minute race component that individuals complete
  3. Fundraising–after all, this is still a charity event!

Here are the details:
