Here’s a great alternative to our LIVE events and a great way to stay fit and active while “sheltering in place”. The AMPT Virtual Series allows registrants to safely participate in our events and complete the race(s) on their own.
You pick the race(s), distance, and START LINE! So, whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood, or walk laps around a track, the AMPT Virtual Series is an ideal way to participate and earn our great race SWAG!
This virtual series provides 4 virtual races with 3 distances to choose from. Choose one, some, or all of these events to participate in!
We invite you to make positive strides during these tough times and use this challenge to focus on your health and well-being.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of AMPT’s 2020 physical events have NOT been cancelled; however, some have been postponed due to COVID-19. This virtual series does NOT replace any scheduled LIVE events. The virtual series is simply an alternative solution for those that can not attend a physical event(s) or prefer to “shelter in place”.
To date, we are still planning for the Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K and the Toyota Music Factory Half Marathon, 10K & 5K to be LIVE events.
Please note: The Hot Trot Half Marathon, 10K & 5K and Shoots & Ladders 5K & 10K will NOT be LIVE events and have gone entirely VIRTUAL.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual run event is similar to a traditional running event except the participant completes it entirely on their own. There is not a required location that the event must be completed nor a mandatory time. You choose the race, distance, location, and time. AMPT virtual events create positive motivation by awarding each race participant with a bib, shirt, and finisher medal.
HOW DOES A VIRTUAL RACE WORK?
Participants first choose the event, distance, OR “series bundle” to register for, just as they would choose a live running event. Once the participant registers for their virtual event(s), the next step is to complete the distance for the event(s). The distance can be completed at any location the participant chooses. The Virtual race should be completed within 30 days of the LIVE event date. After the participant has completed the required distance(s) they will submit their time(s) to our results page. Once the results have been received, registrants can upload photos to the AMPT Facebook page and proudly wear their shirt and medal.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE TO COMPLETE A VIRTUAL RACE or THE VIRTUAL SERIES?
Currently we have no limitations on age. We encourage all ages to take on our challenges and complete them.
DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR RACES IN THE AMPT VIRTUAL RACE SERIES?
No. The AMPT Virtual Series includes 4 individual races with 3 distances to choose from. Choose one, some, or all the events to participate in! Our virtual races are for everyone no matter what their fitness level is.
How do I change my live eVENT registration to a VIRTUAL?
We are sorry that you cannot attend the LIVE production of your registered event. You may transfer your race to the VIRTUAL RACE at any time up to 1 week prior to the event date. Requests to transfer to a virtual race must be submitted in writing to email@example.com. Transfer fees may apply.
HOW DO I RECEIVE THE EXCLUSIVE “AMPT VIRTUAL SERIES” SHIRT AND FINISHER MEDAL?
The exclusive AMPT Virtual Series shirt and medal is included in all “BUNDLE” registrations. Participants that registered for an event(s) separately (not in a bundle) will have the option to ADD the exclusive AMPT Virtual Series shirt and/or finisher medal at an additional cost.
Participants that registered for ALL 4 VIRTUAL events on or before June 10, 2020 can email firstname.lastname@example.org to add the Virtual Series shirt and medal at no additional charge.
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY RESULTS FOR A VIRTUAL RACE?
The AMPT Virtual Series is based on the honor system for submitting your results. Once you complete the event you’re registered for, simply go to our RESULTS PAGE to choose the event within the dropdown menu, record your time, and then submit.
DO I HAVE TO “RUN” THE VIRTUAL RACE?
Our challenges all have the same goal and the goal is to get you up and moving. It’s entirely up to you how you complete your race. So, whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood, or walk laps around a track, AMPT virtual races are an ideal way to train for other events and to stay active.
I DO NOT LIVE WITHIN THE UNITED STATES, CAN I STILL REGISTER FOR AN EVENT?
Unfortunately, price includes shipping and handling within the continental US only. We do not ship outside of the continental US.
DOES THE VIRTUAL SERIES OFFER REFUNDS?
Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on registrations. You do have the option to transfer your registration to another person or select to have the full amount donated to the benefiting charity. Please email transfer request to email@example.com.
How soon will my race packet(s) ship?

Do I need to show proof that I completed my virtual race or the Virtual Triple Dare Challenge?
