The Hammer Hybrid and The Virtual Hammer presented by HOKA:
The Hammer Hybrid – Complete the 2K, 5K, 10K, 15K virtually using your own routes and at any time during the virtual race period between March 1 – March 27, 2022. Then race in person on March 27, 2022 to complete The Hammer. Times for each distance submitted by March 27, 2022 will be included in the official results for each category. Times from each of these events will also be added together for a combined Hammer Time!

The Virtual Hammer is similar to the above except the 30K would also be run virtually so using your own route and at any time during the race period.

What is a Virtual Race?
Virtual races are races that you would run using your own route during the virtual race period. Our virtual race period this year is March 1 – March 27, 2022. Then you would submit your virtual race time and we would post with other virtual racers’ results. Details on submitting virtual race results still to come.
