Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date on July 25, 2020 and look forward to having you join us! 

Become a VIRTUAL racer by selecting this option. Event swag (if applicable) will be mailed to registered participants the week of the event date (7/25/20)  Swag isn't scheduled to arrive at our location until a few days prior to the event, so it's possible it may arrive to you by post AFTER the event day.

Virtual runners are encouraged to post their run times and pictures of your race on our Facebook page so that we can all celebrate your accomplishment.  Virtual runners will NOT be able o submit their time since there will be a local event happening. For more info on virtual racing, see our Virtual FAQ page.

Virtual racers can run anytime! You may choose to run on/near the normal date or closer to the new event date! It's up to you!

If you have questions, please email us at info@3wraces.com

If you cannot make the postponement date or don't want to be a virtual runner, you have until the scheduled start time of the event to TRANSFER your registration to another 3W Races event OR you can defer to the regular Federal Cup date in 2021 (3rd weekend in May). If you would like to defer, select this option and email us at info@3wraces.com

If you don't know which event you want to transfer to yet, then simply request a voucher for an upcoming race - we'll email you a voucher code for the amount you paid to be used any time in through 2022.

If you paid with a voucher, contact us by email to reinstate your original voucher value.

VIRTUAL related questions/answers are below:

WHEN should I run this?
-> You can run this ANYTIME you desire.  If it is best for you to wait until later this year to run this distance, then WAIT!  Many participants will be running on the originally scheduled date/weekend, July 19th, but that’s the benefit of a virtual event.  Only the RACE is virtual – the RUN is REAL, WHENEVER you choose to do it.  Need to wait until the middle of August?  That’s fine!

WHERE should I run this?
-> That is 100% your choice.  The safest place to run at this time is a treadmill.  If you choose to run outdoors, please take every precaution ordered in your area.  In most of Colorado, that means staying NEAR your HOME and wearing a mask.  Don’t drive to a trailhead or a park.  Stay within YOUR neighborhood.  Yeah, that might mean making several loops around your ‘hood for your desired distance.  You’ll have stories to tell, that's for sure!

HOW should I run this?
-> Run any way that works for you!  Need to walk a mile a day for a couple weeks to earn it?  Then do that!  Please, follow social distancing precautions.  If you’re outdoors, wear a mask, stay away from other people, don’t touch anything, don’t drive to a trailhead or park, stay near your home/neighborhood.

How do I report my TIME?
-> On the morning of July 25, the virtual results submission links for each distance will be active.  You’ll be able to submit YOUR time through that link until the end of the month. You can submit them here: (link coming soon!). If you need longer because you’ve chosen to run later in the year, then you’ll email your time after you complete your run.  info@3wraces.com

Are TIMES verified?
-> No.  For the virtual event, times reported are on the ‘honor system’.  We do have this event listed in STRAVA and encourage athletes to use the STRAVA app to record their runs there as well.

WILL RESULTS be posted?
-> You bet!  Starting the afternoon of July 25, preliminary results will be on the RESULTS page of the website. 

Will participants be rewarded based on PERFORMANCE?
No, because participants are running in different locations, times, etc. we will not award anything based on performance.  See next question regarding prizes!

Will there be any PRIZES?
-> TBD

HOW will I get my SWAG?
-> It will be sent through USPS.  If your address in your RunSignUp account is outdated, please update it now.  Go to RunSignUp.com Click on "Profile" where you may then edit your personal details.   If your address is not in RunSignUp, you may add it now.  Likewise, you may email info@3wraces.com

WHEN will I get my SWAG?
-> Hopefully, swag will arrive at your location during the week of July 25.

What if I want to change my DISTANCE?
-> You can do this through your RunSignUp account under “manage my registration” or you can email your request.  info@3wraces.com


Each registrant will receive a collectors' Federal Cup snap-back trucker cap!
