DoppelLaufer Turkey Bell Challenge

OK, OK we’re doing it again, you can stop the nagging now.  Yes, virtual racing is back!

We have expanded the challenge to include races of any distance (5k through marathon) through the end of the year, just in time for the holiday Turkey Trots, Gobbler Runs, Jingle Bell Runs, Candy Cane Runs, etc.

You can read the details and enter here, or just jump into our discussion thread over at Cool Running. or you can just send me your race info and 5k PR through my blog and I'll make sure you are added to the list. I will also be posting updates and results here in my blog.  

Check out my DoppelLaufer Virtual Racing page for past results and a brief history of this nonsense.


  1. Ooh Ooh!! I might be in on this one. I think I have 2 races before New Year's Eve hits!

  2. @ Fruitfly - I took the liberty of adding your name to the list already. If you like, we can give you a jump start by including Malice's recent 5k PR performance. All I need is your old 5k PR and the names of your upcoming races.

  3. Alright, I'm in! :)
    My 5K time when I was the lovely Malice was 31:11.
    My PR prior to that was 33:24.

    My upcoming races are 11/20 the Run to Stay Warm 5K. And the Jingle Bells Run 5K on 12/11.

    I feel like I've just about given you my life story. I thought I would just cover all my bases here! :)

  4. @Fruitfly - and you immediatly move right in to 2nd place. It won't take much improvement to take the lead with one of your remaining races. I updated the standings here: http://runningbirdsblog.blogspot.com/p/doppellaufer-virtual-racing.html
