How it works
Between Nov 19 and Nov 25, the simulation is live. When you are ready for your official run, you can enter your activation code. This will tell the app to track your run. Once your run is completed, you will be prompted to submit your time. The app will save and report your time and you will be able to generate an official finisher’s certificate with your name and time.
How to register
Our Online Registration system provides a Simulated Participant category. Simulated Participation will cost $20. This fee will give you access to the app and video for training and the ability to run the race. Outside Interactive will send an email with download instructions for the app and accompanying video.
The Manchester Road Race Committee has decided that simulated participation will NOT count toward the accumulation of longevity years of participation in the road race. The feeling of the committee is that years of running the road race mean years of running the race on the road on Thanksgiving day.
Trailers and articles
Check out this trailer of the Manchester Road Race course video that represents what you will be watching on your treadmill when you download the app and video. Keep in mind, when you download the app and video you will be setting your treadmill and the app to the pace you want to run. The video will then pace itself to your desired pace.
Check out this article in the Washington Post that gives a nice overview of Outside Interactive progress.
