When the opportunity to run a virtual race that was connected to the lovable Minions, I just couldn’t pass it up! I saw it as a great way to spend some time with one of my sons who doesn’t enjoy running that much but always is up for fun runs like this one here. I have to disclose that the real selling point for my son was the AMAZING swag that came with his registration. He loves the t-shirt and the medal is obviously a winner for him but it was the winter pom hat that was the clincher! Loves the pom hat and, for that matter, so do I!
The race being virtual made it easy to find a time for both of us to take on the 5K and we were able to do at a leisurely pace. I loved that we were able to run, jog, walk and talk the whole time. It made for a great bonding experience.
The virtual support was positive as well. I was emailed about the registration confirmation and delivery of my son’s swag packet. I was also informed of my medal being delayed and that it would be coming soon as well (I had registered much earlier than my son hence the difference there) and they were supportive on social media channels as well. I only give the race management section 3 out of 5 stars since I’m still waiting for my medal after being told it wouldn’t be long until it arrived. Otherwise, this was a very fun virtual race to participate in and I would certainly do it again, whether it be Minions or some other fun option.
Happy running everyone!!
