ALBUQUERQUE HALF MARATHON VIRTUAL RUN + 10K, 5K AND KIDS K

Organized by RunFit

About this event

EVENT LOCATION:

You choose the time and place to start and finish your distance: 10K, 5K or Kids K

EVENT SCHEDULE: November 7-22, 2020

Due to the public state health order currently limiting gatherings to 10 or fewer people due to the COVID-19 virus, we can no longer hold an in-person event for this year’s Albuquerque Half Marathon. However, we are excited to announce our Albuquerque Half Marathon Virtual Run!

We know, crossing the “finish line” without crowds of people cheering you on is not your first choice. But it’s the safest thing to do in the year of 2020 and COVID-19. And we’re sure you’re going to rock that medal on November 7!

2020 Albuquerque Half Marathon

FAQs

The 2020 Albuquerque Half Marathon is going virtual this year, so let us have some fun with it! Here are answers from our first Q and A session about the events’ move to virtual.

  • Can I still register for the 2020 Albuquerque Half Marathon? YES! All the 2020 events are virtual, and registration is still open for the Half Marathon, 10K, 5k, and Kids K.

  • What are my options if I am already registered for one of the 2020 Albuquerque Half Marathon events? First— thank you! If you’re already in, you’ve got three options: 1. Run virtually with us this year, 2. Defer your registration to 2021 (Event Date: 4/10/21) at no charge, or 3. Donate your registration fee to RunFit: Non-Profit.. You can manage these options yourself through the following website: www.irunfit.org. You must choose your option no later than 10/15/20. Otherwise, your registration will automatically defer to next year’s event.

Please note: If you choose to defer your event until next year, please fill-out the information on the link above. You will find the information under the Albuquerque Half Marathon logo on front page of the RunFit website. There is no need to re-register for the Albuquerque Half Marathon .

  • How will this event be timed? Record your race time using: Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun, MapPedometer.com or a simple stopwatch . There will not be any official timing system set up.
  • Will the course still be shared with the runners if we want to run that route ? Yes, the courses are published and available on the RunFit website (www.irunfit.org). However, keep in mind they will NOT be coned or marked, and there will be no traffic control along the route.
  • If we do the run virtual, will we still get the shirt and the medal? Yes! You will receive a finisher medal and event tee.
  • If I already registered for the Albuquerque Half Marathon or related events: 10K, 5K, Kids K, will I receive a t-shirt and medal? You must choose “Option 1” (see above) to receive a medal and shirt this year.
  • Will there be packet pickup? We are planning on a packet pick across several days. We will post details here once they are finalized, and all registrants will get that information through their runners “Participant Information” that will be emailed out and can be found on the RunFit website: www.irunfit.org.
  • What will the accountability procedure be to “prove” we ran the distance? You are on the honor system this year. There is no prize purse, so no one’s running for the money. Unless you made a wager with your friends, but that is on you. Strava dopers, do your thing, but that is not really the spirit of the event.

  • Will time limits still be put in place? Sort of, but they are REALLY generous! We are opening the completion window from November 7 to November 22, 2020. Do your half marathon, or 5k in one day, or spread it out over the course of more than two (2) weeks!
  • Will there be medals? If so, how, and when will they be received? The plan is to do packet for medals, tees, swag etc., all at once.
  • What about the Half Marathon Relay? Is that still happening, too? Yes, it is still and event you can do virtually, too! Teams of 2 can break it up however they want. Just have fun with it! If there is ever a year to take it less seriously, this is it!
  • Is there a nonprofit or charity tied to the half marathon? You bet! RunFit is a 501 c 3 Non-Profit aimed at combating childhood obesity and building community: We continue to help a variety of organizations as well: UNM Cancer Foundation, Barrett House, Women 2 Be, and many more while continuing our mission of helping our youth (of all ages) make healthy choices.
  • Will there be mile markers to help me stay on course? We will not post formal mile markers on the roads, but mile markers are listed on our published maps. And again, the official course will NOT be coned, marked, or closed to traffic. If that is the route you choose to run, then you take full responsibility for yourself and your actions.
  • What about flexibility in start and finish time? Yes! We are essentially opening the completion window from November 7 to November 31, 2020. Do your Half Marathon 10K or 5K in one day or spread it out over the course of more than two (2) weeks! This is YOUR virtual race— do it how and when you want!
  • Got more questions or ideas to make this the BEST EVER virtual event? Send them our way to stephenpino@hotmail.com

As we get more questions that benefit the group, we will add them here. We look forward to sharing this experience with you come November!
