SFM Backwards Virtual Race – 5k, 10k, half or full

Real-Time Remote Racing™ provided by RTRT.me

The whole world feels backward, inside out and topsy turvy, let’s honor our original official 2020 race date, July 26th, by virtually running our courses backward! Choose to run the 5k, 10k, 1st half, 2nd half or full.

We made a super cool backward, nonsensical graphic tee and a medal made of paper to reward you, look closely the surfer is wearing a mask and it’s snowing in San Francisco!

We have partnered again with RTRT.me, our mobile app provider, to bring you this live virtual race. Follow your selected course via the  RTRT.me app to track your progress. Have your friends and family watch you run. Real-time leaderboards and splits will be displayed as you run, don’t miss out because this is the closest thing to a real race feel that you can get right now

RTRT.me Real-Time Remote Racing™ uses the built-in GPS on participant smartphones to track participants in a live outdoor event. Participants race remotely on their favorite local routes while competing with others in the same virtual event route at the same time. GPS data is transmitted through the RTRT app, and updates happen in real-time as participants race, allowing them to be followed live by supporters. Learn more about the RTRT Remote Racing Experience here.

Race Details: Head-to-head competition starts at 6:00am but you can run anytime that day (race closes at midnight on 7/26)  Participants are highly encouraged to start at 6:00am as this will make it feel the most like a real race!
