Frequently Asked Questions
How do Virtual Races work?
1.Register for the virtual race of your choice online and you will receive an email upon payment that includes your registration code and instructions.
2.Access the virtual race by inputting the code in the Pacer app. Finish the required distance in a single session within the selected period and complete the race. You can record GPS activities and treadmill workouts using Pacer, or sync activities from connected devices / apps. You can also upload proof of your efforts and manually submit results in Pacer.
3.You can decide when you want us to ship your medals. You may choose "no completion, no medal", in which case we will not ship your medal until you have completed your race. Alternatively, you can also ask us to ship your medal at the first available time regardless of your race completion status. You may make your choice at registration checkout.
How to submit my results?
There are 3 ways to submit your result to a virtual race.
1. Record and save a GPS-tracked activity using Pacer app. Eligible activities will be automatically counted towards any active race. Supported activity types: walking, hiking, running, treadmill and biking.
2. Connect Pacer with 3rd party devices / apps. Use that device / app to record your activity, and your results will be automatically synced to Pacer. Currently Pacer app is able to connect with Garmin, Fitbit, Samsung, Apple Watch, Apple Health Kit and GoogleFit.
3. You can also manually submit results in Pacer. Note that you need to upload photos / screenshots of your efforts. Submission without proof may be subject to removal from the race.

1. You need to finish the required distance in ONE single session to complete a virtual race. Make sure that the result you submitted meets the requirement.
2. Note that Only activities started AFTER you join a virtual race will be counted towards the race. If you are manually submitting results in Pacer app, make sure the "date and time" is not too early.

Can I still get the medal if I didn't finish the race within the period?
You can decide when you want us to ship your medal. You may choose "no completion, no medal", in which case we will not ship your medal until you have completed your race. Alternatively, you can also ask us to ship your medal at the first available time regardless of your race completion status. You may make your choice at registration checkout.
