Your virtual run may commence starting Wednesday, April 21 and all times must be submitted by 10 am  CST on Saturday, April 24, 2021.   A link and code will be provided to those running virtually to submit their times the week of the event.  Please feel free to post a photo on the UNO Maverick Run Facebook page at UNOMaverickrun.  We accept result on the honor system, so you can track your distance and times however you like.  The most accurate way to do this is by using a running GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devises that you may be interested or already have. Times submitted are on a honor system and if you choose to walk virtually you may do so as well.   Set a goal – whatever it may be and go out and accomplish it!   If that means take a break, run some walk some so be it.   Just track your distance and time each day and enter your total time after you have competed the total distance.
