Virtual Runs: Beastly Challenge

I want to share one of the virtual races that I’ve signed up for.  The final medal proofs were just released the other day on the Virtual Runs group page and I’m super excited for it!  They came out great!

The second virtual race that I signed up for is called Be Our Guest Run for Give Kids The World.  It is a challenge of a 5K and a half marathon.  If you complete both of the distances and run 18.2 miles, you get a third special medal for completing the “Beastly Challenge.”  The medal for the 5K is Belle and half marathon is the Beast.  If you complete the Beastly Challenge you'll get the Rose medal!  Yay!

The race is benefiting Give Kids the World Village in Orlando, Florida.  Give Kids the World Village is a 70-acre resort located right near Central Florida's world famous theme parks.  It is a place where children with life threatening illnesses and their family members can go for a weeklong, cost-free dream vacation.  This is a great cause and it makes me happy to know that I'm helping kids dreams come true.  For more information, check out the GKTWV website here.

I also received my race bibs in my email inbox the other day!  I’m super excited for this race!  

The facebook event page will have a few contests for people signed up for the race.  We can also post pictures after our race with our bibs and medals!  There might also be a prize for the best dressed/best picture.  I think that I need to wear something Beauty and the Beast inspired for the race.  You can run the half marathon in segments for this run, so I’ll probably try to do the 18.2 miles in one week.

If you'd like to sign up, here is the link for the registration.  The Facebook event page is where we'll all be posting our race photos!  I'll make sure to post my results and photos here too.  Now I need to figure out what to wear!  °o°


  1. Do you still have any medals available?

    1. I'm not sure if they still do! You'll have to contact the race director. If you go on Facebook to the event page you can ask them! Here's the link:
      Good luck!!! :-)
