This app will allow you to run your virtual race and automatically track your pace, distance and overall time. The app will recognize the race distance that you registered for and automatically stop your session at the appropriate distance (eg 3.1 miles for a 5K virtual race) and send your results in. It's the closest thing you can get to running a real race!

A pop up window will appear and ask you if you'd like to use the app to run or walk your race.

You can also use a different app or device (such as a watch) to record your activity. If you do this, you can select MANUAL ENTRY and enter your time. Your results will automatically be sent up to the event's overall results on itsyourrace.com
