About two weeks I posted about my experience with the Level Up Virtual Run. I teamed up with them for their February run and had a great experience. I was even lucky to have the opportunity to give away an entry into their April race. Congrats to Erin H. on winning that entry! She ended up choosing to do the half marathon entry. I’m not sure I could do a virtual half, so more power to you!!
Every month Level Up Virtual Runs hosts a new race with a pretty great theme! For this week’s Five Things Friday, I wanted to follow back up with them and shout out 5 amazing reasons to register for one of their upcoming races. The guys over at Level Up are very passionate about what they do and it definitely shows in how they take the time to make sure every detail is correct.
1 – I received my medal for my February race in the mail the other day and needless to say I was not disappointed! I think it’s actually bigger than both of my marathon medals! I surely cannot complain about that! And what’s even better is that it spins (link to Level Up Instagram account to show the spinning part). I only have one other spinner medal and this medal trumps the other one for sure.
2 – A lot of virtual runs might only offer one distance or charge you more to register for a longer distance. However, with Level Up, every month you have the option of a 5k, 10k or half marathon and they are all the same price. You don’t have to pay more for the half marathon option. This is rarely the case for regular races even. Often you’ll see $5-$15 difference as the distance gets longer.
3 – Each month they have a different and fun theme. So far, their April race is definitely my favorite one, but their May race might be appealing if you are a Star Wars fan. May the Fourth Be With You race will be open for registration soon so if you’re a Star Wars fan, definitely make sure you snag this one!
4 – In addition to the sweet race medal that you get, every person who registers also get a $25 gift certificate to use at SLS3. I’m personally able to recommend the dual pocket running belt, as I did review on it last month, but you can’t go wrong with any of their products. I might even try their compression socks or sleeves with the one I got.
5 – So, of course I saved the best for last! Right now, Level Up is is offering a 15% discount off their April Virtual Run. This race, known as the Incredible Virtual Run and has a great Incredibles themed medal. Use code APRIL15 to save 15% off any of their run options for April. After the simple $1 service fee, it will come to just over $22. Can’t beat that price for some nice bling!
