Good question! A virtual race is an event where you register like any other race except for this event, you can walk, run, ride, swim, ski or any method you choose to complete the distance, any place you like and at any time you like throughout November. Once you have confirmed completion of your race through email and/or social media a custom designed race medal will be sent to you.
You can choose to do a 5km run or since World Diabetes Day is on November 14th (11-14) we are honouring the date by having distance options of 11km or 14km. There are no price differences by distance, the choice is yours – we simply want you to help spread the word to create awareness and fundraising!
_NEW for 2017 – for those that want to complete all three distances totaling 30K, there is a special price and you will receive a Karate Chops Diabetes Tech running shirt._
Our one of a kind medals are designed to honour November 14th World Diabetes Day and the millions of people around the world struggling to live with diabetes every day. The globe represents the fact that diabetes affects people from all backgrounds and cultures in every country around the world. The blue circle around the earth is the international symbol for World Diabetes Day. The flame at the top of the medal is the Flame of Hope which burns in London, Ontario, Canada and will continue to do so until it is extinguished by the team that successfully cures diabetes. The fist breaking through the board represents Karate Chops Diabetes ongoing commitment to Fight for the Cure!
