Quick Virtual Race Review: #CrushCorona 10K

An unresolved nagging injury has kept me from making running goals. I still have a bunch of virtual races lined up, though.

These virtual runs in my neighborhood aren't particularly memorable and the reports are pretty boring. I won't continue posting individual reports about these, with a few possible exceptions.

The #CrushCorona 10K was a themed race put on by Medal Dash. A portion of proceeds from the event was donated to the First Responders Children's Foundation.

Race Day: July 16, 2020
I completed this 10K in my neighborhood. Arthur walked about 5 miles with me. It was about 79°F with 79% humidity when we started just before 7AM.

Swag
This race came with a tech t-shirt and medal.

Recommendation
Good swag. I'd run with Medal Dash again.
