Virtual Runner

Couldn’t get into the race this year or you couldn’t make it to the race?  Maybe the time limit for the course closure is an issue for you.  We have you covered…VIRTUAL RUNNER!

Run virtually from anywhere across the country.

The Asheville Half Marathon & 10K Virtual Running opportunity allows you to participate in the race remotely!

Virtual Running? What’s that?

The virtual running opportunity allows runners to run the event remotely & still receive your Asheville Half Marathon & 10K Shirt, Finisher Medal, and Custom Bib in the mail AFTER the event.

What do I have to do to earn my finisher medal, bragging rights, awards, etc.?

Sign up as a Virtual Runner via our registration page & go for a run between August 14 and race day August 21 wherever you are located.

Can I run from anywhere in the world?

Virtual runners can run anywhere in the world, however the Virtual Runner registration fee only includes shipping of your Asheville Half Marathon Shirt, Finisher Medal, and Custom Bib to an address located in the United States.

What’s the deadline to sign up to be a Virtual Runner?

The Virtual Runner registration will close on August 14! Once online registration is closed, you may NOT sign up to run virtually. If for some reason you are registered to be physically present to run the event and are unable to attend due to a last minute conflict or emergency, we will not be able to mail you your race items.

Who can sign up to run virtually?

Anyone is eligible to sign up to be a Virtual Runner. REGISTER HERE

How do I submit my run?

On August 22nd all registrants for the Virtual Runner will receive email instructions on how to submit their run.  If you do not receive instructions for some reason, you can submit your run to from your Garmin or other running App.  Your run must take place between Aug 14th and August 21st.

What kind of SWAG do I get for being a Virtual Runner?

You still receive your Asheville Half Marathon Shirt, Finisher Medal, and Custom Bib in the mail AFTER the event.

Can I still receive an Age Group Award if I’ve earned it based on how fast I complete my course (wherever in the world I may be)?

No; Age Group Awards will only be awarded to those who’ve earned them on site at the Asheville Half Marathon.

I’ve signed up to run the Asheville Half Marathon & 10K in person, but something’s come up–can I run virtually instead?

Yes, but you’d have to transfer in to be a Virtual Runner by August 14th.

I’ve signed up to run virtually, but I’ve decided I want to come to the Asheville Half Marathon on race day to enjoy the festivities. Can I?

Yes, but you must complete the run PRIOR TO AUGUST 21 and bring your race bib. There is no refund of difference of registration fee.

**Virtual Runner t-shirts can be picked up at packet pick up locations or on race day or will be mailed after race day. Virtual Runners will join from their location but are not eligible for timing or prizes at the event. Correct t-shirt size and race t-shirt are only guaranteed if registered by August 1st.
