Classic Virtual Race

With the Classic Virtual Race you’ll take on the 2021 Tar Heel 10 Miler or 4 Mile Run to get active and show off your Tar Heel Pride. Did we mention there’s also no early wake up call? You can run anytime between April 16th – 25th – that’s just over one week to get through the virtual miles. Sounds like a runners paradise if you ask us…

Tar Heel Tug of War

The Tar Heel Tug of War Team Challenge is not a normal tug of war game. For starters there’s no rope. In this virtual competition you’ll have 10 days to log your miles, collectively earn points, score some epic swag and compete to win the GRAND PRIZE, including:

  • Tar Heel Cash Bag for your university fund of choice,
  • 10 FREE RACE entries into the 2022 Tar Heel 10 Miler
  • FREE Capstone racing for the entire year of 2022 for the Team Captain
  • Autographed Mack Brown Football
  • A $500 Diamonds Direct Gift Card

Enhance Your Virtual Experience!

Commemorate your experience with the stylish Virtual Tar Heel Swag Bag. For only $15 you’ll receive a hat, finisher medal and a cinch bag to remember your experience.

Enhance your experience even more and have your swag shipped to your door for just $10.  Any runners that do not pay for shipping will need to pick-up their swag during our dedicated Swag Pick-Up times the weekend of April 23rd. More details will be available soon.
