VIRTUAL EVENT MAY 23 - JUNE 6, 2021
This year ALL will participate virtually! We would have loved to see everyone on site in person but, since that is not possible we are embracing our virtual event as an opportunity for all prior runners (no matter where they are stationed/living) to participate in our 2021 VIRTUAL Navy Ten Nautical Miler powered by USAA event! This event is designed for EVERYONE, ANYWHERE, including our deployed Service Members. We are hoping all will take this as an opportunity to reboot their personal fitness efforts and use this event as something to inspire them to keep moving forward to achieve fitness goals they set for themselves.
All those that register to participate will receive a race packet
including a limited edition finishers medal (Navy10NM Anchor,)
custom designed poly blend race shirt, race bib and a branded novelty item via postal mail.
Although there will not be any awards presented...
all participants are encouraged to record their "results" on our website,
print a custom finisher certificate, wear their swag with pride,
and tag us on social media #NAVY10NM and/or @ Navy10nm.
HOW DO I COMPLETE THE VIRTUAL NAVY TEN NAUTICAL MILER?
You can complete your virtual run anytime May 23 through June 6. For our virtual race you are on the honor system to track and record your race time. Everyone is encouraged to meet the goal of completing 10 nautical miles (11.508 miles about a half marathon) in one session less than 4 hours. Only the performance of a distance based exercise (run/walk/handcycle)— indoor or outdoor should be counted towards completion of this race. You'll have to finish your total of 10 nautical miles before June 6, 2021. The results site will turn off on this date.
HOW DO I GET MY RACE SWAG?
When you register you will have the option to have a packet placed in mail or to pick up in person. Shipping dates are tentatively planned for: May 17, May 31 and June 4. Our drive thru in-person packet pick up is tentatively scheduled to be held May 21 at 7915 Memphis Ave. Millington, TN 38053.
WHY 10 NAUTICAL MILES?
Our unique race distance represents the distance from a ship to the horizon line; a distance for which our military battled when they stormed Normandy in June of 1945. Our runners gladly take on that challenge to commemorate the work of our US Military. For you landlubbers, a 10 nautical mile race is similar in length to a half-marathon.
VIRTUAL TRAINING SERIES!
Note we are aware that some of those interested in participating may need a little extra incentive to stay on track in preparing to complete the run within one 4 hour session as would be done if the event was held in person. So our fitness team is tentatively planning to offer a series of online "virtual training" tools. These activities highlights and milestones alerts will be presented to motivate participants and provide support many need to feel fully prepared to successfully complete a long distance race and know they are truly capable of earning their 2021 Navy10NM Anchor. You are not required to participate in these activities. However, everyone who registers to participate in our 2021 VIRTUAL Navy Ten Nautical Miler powered by USAA will receive a confirmation email as well as series of virtual training activities and tools!
