Virtual Race ATHLETE GUIDE

How to Run DONNA Virtually

Step 2: Pick-up your race packet, including your finisher’s medal, at the DONNA Health & Fitness Expo or opt to have your packet mailed to you for a small postage fee.
Step 3: Go the distance in your neighborhood:
Option 1: Submit A Time For an Official Result
1. Run your 5K, Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra Marathon anytime starting February 4, 2022 through February 28, 2022 following the safety measures that have been established by your local government regarding COVID-19. Ultra athletes must cover the 110 miles over two, consecutive days.
2. Use the virtual race features in the Active Experience App to capture your time or go to our results page before 11:59 PM ET on Monday, February 28, 2022. Ultra athletes email proof of performance to ultra@breastcancermarathon.com.
3. Submit your time as instructed. You will need your registration ID found in your registration confirmation email or in your myactive account. Please note: the system will retain the last submitted time rather than the fastest!
4. DONNA staff will confirm your time.
5. Official results and winners will be announced in March 2022.
OPTION 2: GO THE DISTANCE YOUR WAY! Run your 5K, Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra Marathon anytime. Run the distance all at once, or over time. No time submission is required. There is no deadline.
Step 4. Post your results and a photo with your finisher’s medal and race bib in our Facebook group, insta or tweet using the hashtags #DONNATogether and #runDONNAvirtual! (That’s not required, but super fun.)

 

Overall Digital Finisher Awards

The top breast cancer survivor and overall male and female finishers for all DONNA virtual events will receive a digital DONNA Top Finisher award for social media bragging rights.

Packet Pick-up & Mailing

Packet pick-up will be available from the DONNA Health & Wellness Expo if selected during registration. Packet mailing is available for a fee, and packets will be mailed AFTER DONNA Marathon Weekend. Packet mailing is only available for addresses within the United States. To make special arrangements, please contact us.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • WHAT IF I CAN’T RUN 3.1, 13.1, 26.2 or 110 MILES? You don’t have to run the entire miles at once unless you plan to submit an official time. That’s the beauty of a virtual race. You have all the time you need to go the distance, so you may spread the miles out.
  • Is my time an official finish time of the DONNA? Yes. If you go the distance between February 4 and February 28, 2022 all at once* and submit your time as instructed, your time will be published with official virtual results. 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!
    *Ultra Marathon exceptions
  • Is the DONNA Virtual Marathon a Boston Qualifier? No. The B.A.A. is unable to accept virtual races or GPS data for the purpose of Boston Marathon qualifying times. Only qualifying times from USATF, AIMS, or other foreign equivalent certified courses may be submitted for Boston Marathon registration purposes.
  • MAY I COMPLETE THE RACE WITH A GROUP OR AT ANOTHER RACE EVENT? Of course! Run DONNA Everywhere, Together.
  • I AM A DONNA STREAKER. WILL THE VIRTUAL EVENT ALLOW ME TO KEEP MY ‘STREAK’? Only if you submit an official time as instructed. You will be able to maintain your streaker status completing the virtual event between February 4 and February 28, 2022 with an official result. You must submit your time to keep your streaker status.
