Vulcan Stroll, Magic City Virtual 5K, November 2020

Fit To Ride

Awareness of the outside world. Thanksgiving in the US. I am worried for my country. Too many people will, to quote a famous philosopher, “Ignore this particular problem until it swims up and bites you on the ass.” IMDB.

The 2020 Magic City Half Marathon & 5K
Official date – Nov 1 to Dec 1
My date – Friday, November 20, 2020
Location – Vulcan Trail, Birmingham, Alabama, USA
Time – 1:04:03
Results – 23 of 26, as of yesterday
Tracker – RaceJoy

Not final. Doesn’t really matter. We all know I’ll be way in the back.

Only 26 entrants? That is highly unusual for a virtual race. Usually more people participate virtually than IRL. I suspect a delay in processing. I used the official tracker that automatically loaded my numbers. Others may be using trackers that require intervention from management. We shall see.

No map image from RaceJoy. Route is out and back. Not particularly exciting to look at. Two miles straight that way. Turn around, two miles straight back thataway. Since the 5K took me within 1/2 mile of the other end, I walked to the end to check it out. Extra footsteps logged for virtual UK walk [LEJOG]. Wouldn’t want mileage to go to waste.
