About Vacation Races

National Park Race Series

Our Events

Vacation Races was founded in 2012 when we launched registration for the Inaugural Zion Half Marathon. Since then, we’ve added seven more races to our calendar, each centered around a different National Park. Our goal is to put on beautiful half marathons and get people to visit and enjoy our amazing national parks. Learn about our convenient refund options, excellent military pricing, and innovative cup-free policy on each of our race websites.

Virtual Races

What is a virtual race?
Technology allows community interaction, without demanding that we all be in the same place at the same time. Virtual Races provide runners the opportunity to participate in an awesome race event from wherever they are! Most of our 2015 virtual races are on days when National Park entries are free. We hope these give you an excuse to go visit your nearest park.
Why should I run?
Filling out your race calendar is becoming increasingly more expensive and wasteful! Virtual Races keep race entries low and allow you the flexibility to run when and where you want. You can be a part of the global running community whether you are physically running by yourself or you are meeting up with other local runners to participate in these events.
