As part of the Fanthropy Running Programs, the FRC is a virtual community that hosts fandom-themed virtual running events for public participation. You choose the geeky medal that interests you, and complete the event distance however, whenever, wherever you choose. We ship you the awesome runner's medal, and a portion of proceeds from every registration goes to a monthly charity!


A virtual run is an event that can be run in any location, at any time, at any pace. You can walk, jog, or run; use the treadmill, hit the road, sidewalk, or trail; you can even participate day or night or even in another "real-world" fitness event. It’s completely up to you!
