World Run Day Virtual Run Series Expands with Virtual Super Bowl and Virtual LUV RUN in February

Event Registration Offered Overseas

NEW YORK, January 4 – Having single-handedly invented the Virtual Run in 1999 for charitable purposes, World Run Day has added two new events to its "Virtual Run Series". The Virtual Super Bowl Run scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday, February 6th asks runners to slim down before the big football night. Runners will be issued an individually tailored running bib, have their name listed as a participant and placed on the Google Virtual Map.

Although each runner typically chooses a dedication or quote to put on the event site, the Virtual Super Bowl Run provides the opportunity for runners to post their game predictions. They will also be able to post photos on the event participant page. For the Virtual LUV Run, taking place on Valentine's Day weekend (Feb 12-14) runners can post love messages on the event site. Each event asks the runner to make a small donation to their favorite local charity - which is also posted on the event site

All participants will be rewarded with the Official World Run Day Event T-shirt - mailed a few weeks after registration. This year runners can also elect to receive an E-BIB with personalized data imprinted. The cost is considerably less and gets the registrant listed on the event site and on the World Run Day participant map.

Registration is also offered for the Virtual LUV Run at the activeglobal site which is available to runners outside the USA and accepts several foreign currencies.
