RUNNING A VIRTUAL RACE WITH ITS YOUR RACE

How it works

Register for Your Virtual Race

Find a virtual event on ITS YOUR RACE and click the REGISTER button. When prompted during the registration process, either login or create a new account for ITS YOUR RACE.  

  • **The email you use to login to ITS YOUR RACE must match the email address that you enter during race registration**

Download the IYR Virtual Mobile App

APPLE APP STORE  |  GOOGLE PLAY STORE

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!

If you do not wish to use the IYR Virtual mobile app for your virtual race, please see instructions for manually entering your finish time at the bottom of this page.

Log Into Your ITS YOUR RACE Account

When you open the app for the first time select the "I've used it before" option and login to your IYR account.  

Find Your Race and Get Ready to Run
or Walk

Search for your event, tap it and go to the TRACKER menu item at the top. Click on the READY FOR MY RACE button.  The app will automatically detect the email address that you are logged in with and compare it to the registrations for that race.  Select the RACE DISTANCE that you registered for. The app will pull your registration for that event.  If you registered multiple participants under your account, it will ask you which person is running right now. Tap the OK button.

Start Your Race and Allow App Permissions

When you're ready, slide the START RACE button at the bottom. The app will count down 5 seconds and you will receive notifications from your phone to allow motion and fitness activity, and then to allow GPS BE SURE TO TAP OK and ALLOW for these as the app will not be able to track you if you do not allow these permissions

Run or Walk!

Stow your phone and get moving! The app will automatically calculate your distance, pace and time. When you've reached the exact distance, the app will automatically stop your activity and send your results to the event's results page.  You can save a screenshot of your accomplishment and share it with your friends, family and followers!

*NOTE* If for any reason you need to cancel your race once you've started, you can completely close out the app and it will wipe out your session.  When you restart the app, you can begin your race again.

Please remember to check your local regulations to see where you can and can't run or walk at this time, and remember to social distance!
