Races may have been cancelled, but that doesn’t been running has been. But we realize just how motivating “running for the bling” truly can be, which is why we have created the #teamsparkle virtual runseries… this way we can still run together (at least virtually that is).â €
Each week we will introduce a new theme (this weekend it’s the #teamsparkle virtual MERMAID run), & participation is easy (not to mention FREE).
#TeamSparkle Virtual Mermaid Runâ €
1. Choose your location, then run/ walk/ jog/ bike/ roll or treadmill any amount of miles at any pace this coming weekend (starting March 27th, 2020). & Each week there will be a new theme.
2. Download a #teamsparkle Virtual Mermaid RunÂ bib:
3. Share your photos with the rest of #teamsparkle on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtags #teamsparklevirtualrun and #teamsparkle:â €
Post pics of your #flatsparkle (we encourage you to incorporate this week’s mermaid theme when choosing the clothes and gear you will rock, check out our mermaid shop for a little inspiration), your medal (VIRTUAL medals will be posted to our social media after the weekend), your run, and anything else you want to share.â €
Although we may be “racing” virtually, by posting your pics to our Facebook page, or using the hashtags #teamsparklevirtualrun and #teamsparkle on Instagram and Twitter, we can cheer everyone on!â €

What Can Virtual Running Do For You?
- Stay motivated:Â While “typical” running events may be on hold, you have a whole community of fitness lovers, friends, and loved ones who can uplift you and keep you on track with your health and wellness goals.
- Make friends:Â Whether you bond with the #teamsparkle community or invite people you know to join you, running is a great way to bring people together. You don’t need any special gear to get started. Just get up and go when you’re ready!
- Get inspired:Â Our themed events allow participants to show off their style. If you want to get some #fitspo for your workout needs or just love that cute pair of mermaid scale leggings you saw on Instagram, this is a great way to find new apparel to add to your workout repertoire.
