Virtual Race Information, Rules, and Regulations.

For those that want to keep their five race streak alive or simply cannot make the live event(s), we have a virtual race option. The virtual race offers participants all the same great schwag as the live event (shirt & medal) mailed directly to the virtual runner upon completion of the virtual race requirements (listed below).

A Run Houston! Virtual Race option is available for Sam Houston Race Park, Minute Maid Park, Clear Lake, University of Houston, and Sugar Land.
