Yes Fit Virtual Race Review

Happy Monday everyone! A little while back, in this blog post, I mentioned that I was participating in a virtual run through Yes Fit. They are a website that hold a variety of different virtual runs. They are all different distances and only 25$. You can run the distance all at once or at different times, and at whatever pace you would like. I signed up for the Alice in Wonderland 22.4 mile run. I completed it in a little under two weeks and synced my running watch to the website so that each time I went for a run it went to the site and tracked my miles. This website is super cool because they send you emails once you reach certain "mile markers" and send you google map images of where you are on the race "route" through wherever your race is held. The Alice in Wonderland race takes you through Oxford and around the Thames River where Alice in Wonderland was first created. I received emails of pictures where I am on the route and encouraging me to keep going. Once I finished the 22.4 miles, I immediately received an email with the tracking number for my medal. It was all very organized and efficient which I was very impressed with.
So now that you all know how it works, I will give you some overall thoughts I had about the whole virtual race thing.

First, I would say that I liked the idea of a virtual run because it keeps you motivated to run. It gives you a reason to push yourself, because the faster you run those miles, the faster you get your medal. I like having something to work for. After the Disney Princess 10K I really didn't feel like running because I had worked and trained for a year to build up a fast pace and distance for that race that once it was over I was feeling burned out. I signed up for this Alice in Wonderland virtual race so that I can stay motivated and not loose my pace and stamina. It worked too! I loved having something to work toward.
The one thing about virtual runs, especially Yes Fit that I would say I don't really like is that the distances are so long that I couldn't possibly run it all in one day. Therefore, I had no choice but to split it up between multiple days and run the miles when I had time. This almost made it feel like I was just getting a medal for doing what I would do normally anyways. Now granted, I did earn the medal because I did run the distance, and it forced me to push myself, but it didn't feel as good as if I had just ran a 5k distance all at once and then received a medal. Disney virtual races I have heard are more like that but I can't speak from experience on that one. The registration for the Disney Virtual races open tomorrow at noon! I won't be participating because it is a tad too expensive in my opinion considering it is just a virtual run, but to each their own. 
To sum it all up, the pros of Yes Fit races are that they are an easy way to stay motivated and push yourself, the medal is beautiful, it is only 25$, and they are super quick and efficient. The only con is that the distances are super long and it can sometimes be a pain to drag it out so long. 

I hope this was interesting for some of you, and that you will be inspired to sign up for a virtual run yourself. Yes Fit has a ton of themed races so you have plenty of choices :) Have a great weekend! 

xoxo

  3. I like the concept, but $25 a race seems a little steep, not that the medals don't look nice. I mean, besides the medal, it doesn't look like it really adds much to your workout beyond what a basic fitness tracker would do. I wonder if it has a medal-free option? I like the idea of choosing different races, and the updates with the course photos, but it seems like the app could have a basic, one time purchase, or maybe a $.99 per race option for those who don't need a medal for every race. I suppose that's why they do the longer races, so you feel more like you got your money's worth.

    Thanks for the write-up. I was trying to figure out exactly what the app was, since their site doesn't spell it out.

  4. Liked this review, and plan to sign up for the Popeye long distance one. I am not yet to the 5k level, unless it's walking, so I want some motivation. A friend and I walked a half marathon for our 50th birthday last year.
    I would like to get into short distance running. I see a May 4/5 event this year that you might like. (2018). It's one my radar if this goes well.

  5. I absolutely love the virtual race! I am finishing up Coach Potato and will start the Texas Hill Country one. I'm a fan because I have a physical disability. There is no way I can run or even walk in an in-person race. This is my chance to "race" at my own pace, even if it takes me weeks lol.

  6. Thank you so much for the review! I had never known someone to do these before and wondered if they were as advertised. I may try one!

  7. Do you get both the medal and the shirt? Or do you choose just 1?

    1. You can choose more than one reward; you pay more but there is a discount for multiple rewards so it's not double the price. There are also discounts if you purchase more than one race at a time, and you can complete them in whatever order you want.
