Moon Landing Virtual Race
Due to popular demand this race has been reissued!
Few events in human history are as momentous, as big, as historic as landing on the Moon. It's hard to find the words to explain what this meant in 1969 and we are still in awe today. At 238,900 miles away, getting to the moon was no easy task. Then landing, walking, re-launching and returning safely were equally as challenging. The men and women involved in the Apollo 11 mission did this successfully and we're celebrating the 50th anniversary of their brilliant work!
Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on July 16, 1969 with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin on board. As Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the surface of the moon, Collins stayed back in Lunar Orbit. After an intense descent to the surface of the Moon, the "Eagle" lunar lander touched down July 20.
530 million people watched as Armstrong took "our" first step and uttered his famous phrase: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for Mankind." While there is some argument as to what he actually said, the point remains that this was a BIG DEAL—AND IT STILL IS! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Wander Project.

Other Important Details
Official Race Day
Registration will be open through race day as supplies last. Most people will run that day BUT you can do it when and where works best for you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.
Where's My Swag?
Bibs will be ordered to print about every 3 weeks. It takes about 1 week to print and then another week to ship. Look for your bib to arrive about a month after you sign up.
The coins & patches are shipped regardless of whether you finish your race. If you pick the coin/patch add-on option, it will ship about 2 weeks after you sign up. The coin & patch option includes both the coin & patch (they cannot be separated).
Medals must be earned by finishing the race. This helps us maintain the spirit of the traditional race experience. Medals are shipped about once every 2 weeks or so to those participants who (1) added a medal to their registration AND (2) reported their race finish by the reporting deadline.
