Manchester Road Race Is Underway -- Virtually

A virtual version of the Manchester Road Race began Thursday. Runners can do the event any time before 5 pm on Wednesday. Participants can run in the location of their choosing -- in some cases on another continent. They can time themselves with an app on their cell phones. The phone's GPS capability tells participants when they have run the proper distance of a little less than 4.8 miles. Organizers announced the switch to a virtual race back in September.
