Virtual Strides is proud to announce that we have been selected to host the official virtual race of Grand Canyon National Park’s Centennial celebration! On February 26, 2019, the Grand Canyon celebrates 100 years since it’s designation as a national park. After 100 years, whether its hiking a corridor trail, taking a stroll on the rim or enjoying the landscape from an overlook, Grand Canyon continues to provide a space for all visitors to connect with the outdoors.
Please join Virtual Strides’ Go Grand virtual race and run, walk, or stride your chosen distance whenever and wherever you want to help raise money to preserve this iconic National Park. All participants will receive an officially licensed 4″ Grand Canyon National Park Centennial medal, featuring a hanging “Go Grand” charm.
