A Pandemic-Proof Approach to Competitive Running

Introducing the Singleton Race Series — an innovative, pandemic-proof approach to competitive running. Presented by Old Dominion Racing for running enthusiasts, the Singleton runs on geo-specific courses with best times captured by GPS devices and uploaded nightly to a central race website.

Each racer runs the same route — not together, but on their own time, solo. Racers still get to compete and train to maintain motivation, plus food vouchers and prizes are awarded, along with finishers medals and shirts (without the hassles of lines, crowds, packet pickups, bibs or wave starts).

The program is offered in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia, with plans to expand to other states. Fresh routes are provided to participants each month, giving them a full month to run the course multiple times. Racers can lease a GPS tracker to automatically upload data, or racers can use their own devices.
