Quarantine Queen Mother's Day Virtual Race

Washington, DC


HEY MOMMAS!

Have you been holding your castle up and your tiny servants well-fed, happy and homeschooled during these past few months in lockdown?  It’s time to reward yourself this Mother’s Day with a little bit of
fitness and a shirt fit for the queen that you are

 

Mother’s Day is a day for all moms to be pampered like queens, but how can we do that when all of the spas and wineries are closed?!



It's time to think "outside of the box" this year for Mother's Day.  
Why not take a break, get outside and do a "Virtual Race"?  
What's a Virtual Race? It's an event in which you run your own race around your hometown, but compete against hundreds or even thousands of others around the country FOR A GREAT CAUSE. Yes, we know you can just go out and run at no cost, but a virtual run will motivate you to go a little further, push yourself to compete and know that you are helping others while staying active!  This event will run from April 15th until May 31st.

RACE SWAG MEANT FOR A QUEEN
Every registrants gets a tshirt with their run*.  We designed our shirts for quarantine comfort!  The super soft cotton shirts are women's fit and a great way to show off your race accomplishment during your time on lockdown. 

Want something else to remember your race that will look good holding that post-race beverage?  We're also including an option to purchase an official, custom-made "Quarantine Queen" wineglass*!


*Please note that swag packages will be shipped on a weekly basis (on Mondays) to all that registered the week before, ending on Friday. We will get race packets ready over the weekend to ship out on Monday.

Who are you running for? A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the 
National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) (https://ncadv.org/ ).  We believe in their mission to help people in domestic violence situations, and their efforts to tackle the source of these issues.

Are there awards?
Since we can't 100% verify the times of every participant, we want you to feel like you're in a real race and run for an award! We're selecting 10 random participants that upload their results to receive a special Quarantine Queen bottle opener after results are posted.  Those winners will be announced on our Facebook page.

We'll also be sure to share all of the photos using the #QuarantineQueenRace on social media, so please use that tag with your favorite photos from your race!
