Virtual Race Bag
All Event Participants Receive Digital Goody Bags
We have partnered with Virtual Race Bags to produce a ‘virtual goody bag’ in an effort to ‘go green’ and provide additional benefits to our participants. As a participant of this year’s event you will receive a ‘Welcome’ email invitation to the Virtual Goody Bag prior to the event giving you access to the bag. In the bag you will find an array of valuable information including exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways and messages from our sponsors.
But wait, there’s more! After the event, participants will receive a ‘Thank You’ email invitation to visit their bag and have a final opportunity to take advantage of the offers before the bag closes – as the bag is only available for a limited time.
So watch for the Virtual Race Bag and Get Your Green On!”
