TIPS FOR YOUR VIRTUAL RACE
Use an app such as Google Maps, Map my Run, Nike Running, etc., and determine a 13.1 mile route near you. You can then run, walk, bike, swim or whatever you like.
You can also use an app such as Runkeeper to keep track of your mileage if you are dividing your race up over several days.
