Virtual Experience FAQs

You may complete your race distance any day and any where beginning September 1st, 2021. After you finish your race, upload your finish time to the results page. We will then mail your bib, commemorative patch, official race shirt(s), and finisher's medal(s) beginning in October. If you do not upload your race results, your items will still be mailed to you.
You are going to be on the honor system for completing your race. However, we encourage you to upload your finish time on the race results page. If you would like to track your distance and time you may do so with an app on your phone, smartwatch, treadmill, or stopwatch. It can be helpful to map out a route ahead of time too.
Congratulations on completing your 2021 Air Force Marathon race!
