Have a Question? Let us help!

Click an item from the dropdown menu below for help.

Do I have to run?

Nope. You can do your distance however works best for you. Running is great, but so is walking, hiking, dancing, swimming, rucking...

how does shipping work?

While we ship items together whenever possible, due to the custom nature of our swag, items are often shipped separately. For those that register for the "Up Front" option, pins and medal will ship all together starting in early March. For those that register for "Ship Rewards As They're Earned", each pin will ship as you report the distance milestone in the VRC reporting app. You will be able to begin logging your distance starting January 1, 2022. Milestone awards will start shipping early March.

The USPS is our primary shipping provider. Shirts, pins, and medals ship with a tracking email from support@virtualrunningclub.com. Bibs are sent in a standard white envelope with a first class stamp.
