We have the most amazing parks and to make it even more fun I have decided to run a 10k Virtual Race in honor of celebrating our beautiful open spaces.

A virtual race is like any traditional race without the hassle of location and crowds. It’s your race to run anywhere your heart desires. Your race, your pace, your chosen place! A full registration comes with a race shirt, printable bib, medal and the chance to win prizes. You turn in your results and your medal will be mailed to you.

The NPS 100th Virtual race has extended the race registration till August 28th, 2016. I just had to … the medal is a precious Ranger Hat! Do you still need another reason? A portion of each registration will be donated to the National Park Foundation : )!

The National Park Service (NPS) is an agency of the United States federal government that manages all U.S. national parks, many American national monuments and other conservation and historical properties with various title designations. The NPS is charged with a dual role of preserving the ecological and historical integrity of the places entrusted to its management while also making them available and accessible for public use and enjoyment.

May you find yourself outdoors … running, cycling or just simply hiking! Let the wind play with your hair and may Nature nuture your soul.

FREE admission to all 412 national parks starting August 25th-28th, so plan a visit and Find your Park

Where will you find yourself : )?
