Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I can’t run 13.1 or 26.2 miles? You don’t have to run the entire 13.1 or 26.2 miles at once. That’s the beauty of a virtual race. You have six months to complete this event (October – March), so you may spread the miles out.
Is my time an official finish time of the DONNA? YES! If using the Virtual Runner Application. Otherwise – Your time will not be considered an official time for DONNA, nor will your time be published in results. This is all about the personal achievement of being active, earning a beautiful medal, and of course ending breast cancer!
What is the deadline to raise my minimum $150? You must meet the minimum $150 fundraising requirements on or before March 31. Participants not meeting the minimum requirement on this date will be charged the difference on the credit card used for registration.
When does registration close? Registration closes February 9.
May I complete the race with a group or at another race event? Of course! Run DONNA Anywhere.
I am a DONNA Streaker. Will the virtual event allow me to keep my ‘streak’? Yes. You will be able to maintain your streaker status completing the virtual event.
