The Benefits of a Virtual Run

Virtual runs also offer, not only one day and time to run, but usually a whole week, at any time of day, in which you can complete the run.
Sometimes you may want to support a charity that is especially meaningful to you through running, but for the same reasons listed above (lack of time, difficulties in traveling, previous obligations), you can’t. But through the convenience of virtual runs, you can support your favorite charities.
