Run The 80s: A virtual race for All-Season Runners
Get your headbands and neon bracelets ready, and start teasing your hair... this summer, The All-Season Co invites you to #RunThe80s with us on our first ever virtual race for All-Season Runners.
Run the '80s? As in... the 1980s?
Yes! This is an '80s-themed virtual race. And this is meant to be FUN. Dress up, grab some friends, take selfies, and tag us in your posts so we can share your efforts on Facebook, Instagram, and here on the site. Plus, a portion of all race entry fees will be donated to Because International to help get their innovative "Shoe That Grows" onto the feet of kids who need them in developing countries.
Who can enter?
The race is open to runners in Canada and the U.S.
How much does it cost?
Checkout is hosted by Virtual Run, our partner on this race.
There are two race packages available:
- Standard Package ($30): Includes race entry, including a premium, double sided #RunThe80s medal, race timing and digital bib.
- Upgraded Package ($60): Includes all of the above (entry, medal, timing and bib), plus an exclusive All-Season Runner/Run the 80s performance t-shirt or tank (your choice), with a "Race Bib" design that can be customized with your birth year, your favorite number, or your official Run The '80s virtual race registration number.
Please note: There are a limited amount of entries available for the race, with only 250 medals available across all the packages. So these are first come, first served.
How far is the run?
There will be three distances: 5k, 10k, plus an 80k distance, which plays to the '80s theme of the race, and can be done over the course of multiple runs. Also, this is an inclusive race, so you can run, walk, power walk, wheelchair, bike or choose any other activity that gets you moving the distance of your choosing.
When can I submit results?
August 1 – December 31, 2021.
How do I submit my results, and can I connect my race timing to my Garmin, Apple Watch, etc?
After you register, you will receive an activation email. Think of this as your check-in at the Registration Tent before you head to the Start Line. You can use any app or device to track your run. You can submit results a variety of ways: by uploading a GPX file, connecting directly to your Strava, fitbit, or Under Armour app, or manually entering your time.
Can I buy an entry as a gift?
You sure can. The participant name is added to the entry during the activation process, after you place your order. You can just forward the activation email to them to set up their race or challenge. If you have a running group and want to run the race together, please send us an email to discuss a group discount.
Should I dress up for the run like it's the '80s?
Oh, we sure hope you do! Get your hair teased, neon bracelets on, and walkman pumping. We'll be featuring your photos from the race on our Instagram, so make sure you get a good selfie (or twenty).
Ok, this all sounds totally rad. So, how do I purchase my entry?
The race pre-sale opens at 10am ET on Thursday, July 29. The link will go out first to our email subscribers, so make sure you sign up for our email list here. If there are spots still available after the pre-sale, they will open up on Friday, July 30 at 10am ET.
After you place your order, you will receive an activation email from Virtual Run, with a link to set up your race or challenge. It is during the activation process that the participant info is added to the entry. You choose the course and activity to complete your race or challenge. That's the beauty of virtual racing! If you order the packages featuring a custom bib shirt, our team here at The All-Season Co will also reach out to work with you on the details for the shirt.
When will my order ship?
Your medal will ship straight away. If you've ordered a custom shirt, it'll be created on demand to your specs, and shipped out as soon as possible. You will receive an email confirmation when your order has shipped so that you know to keep your eyes peeled.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to the team with any questions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
