  • Wear appropriate clothing. Be visible and dress for the weather.
     

  • Bring water and/or nutrition if you think you need it. There will be no water / aid stations along the way in a virtual race.

Where Can I Complete My Virtual TTF Race?

Wherever you are! The joy of competing in a virtual race is that you can start it right outside your front door.
