Director of Barkley Marathons dreams up longest virtual race of 1,000K ‘across’ Tennessee
From the twisted mind that brought you the Barkley Marathons and the Quarantine Backyard Ultra, race director Laz Lake has created The Great Virtual Road Race Across Tennessee. The virtual race takes place between May 1 and August 31 as participants attempt to run 1,000 kilometers in four months—the distance it takes to cover the entire state of Tennessee. That amounts to a little over 5 miles per day.
The virtual race “begins” near the southwest tip of Tennessee and ends at the northeast border. Runners can upload their daily runs to the race website and track their progress across Tennessee.
