What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is where you can race, run or walk anywhere you'd like during the Mission Inn Run time window (October 8 - November 8). Use the free RaceJoy GPS tracking app or upload your times and distances on this website (be honest!), and see how you stack up against your community and friends! Uploading times is optional, and you can just mark that you've finished. It's a great way to explore Riverside or your own home and earn some pretty great swag, plus you're supporting the Mission Inn Foundation!

Do I have to run?

The great thing about virtual races that it works for everyone! Race, run, walk or skip while you accumulate miles.  Even treadmills are encouraged!  We just ask that you're honest about your times, and keep moving!

What happens on Race Day, November 8, 2020?

We're planning a celebration where all participants can pick up their T-Shirts and Medals.  We're not quite ready to share the details, but we promise we will!

When do I get my T-Shirt, Medal and Mask?

Every participant will receive their mask in the mail soon after registration.  All T-Shirts and Medals will be available for pickup or shipping beginning November 8, 2020.  


Team Pricing for groups of 5 or more running in the same distance: $5 off each registration for all run courses except Kids Runs!  The first person to register for your team will create the team name and automatically be designated as the team captain. As more team members register, they will be able to search for the team name and sign up as a member.

What is a Landmark Challenge?

Throughout the summer we're going to introduce new Landmark Challenges which explore the rich history of Riverside.  To complete the challenge, just upload a photo of yourself at each Landmark for the particular challenge. All Landmark Challenges will be outdoors and publicly accessible.  More details to come!

Who gets the money from my registration?

The Mission Inn Run is a fundraiser for the Mission Inn Foundation, a non-profit founded in 1976 which operates the Mission Inn Museum on the corner of Mission Inn Avenue and Main Street.  The Mission Inn Museum features free exhibitions about Riverside's rich history, and is the exclusive provider of tours of the National Historic Landmark, the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa.
