Do virtual races from yes.fit count as athletic events?
That is a great question! There are current exceptions to athletic events with Go365 that include virtual athletic events.
Check out Go365 and Covid-19 (Coronavirus) for the FAQ and more detailed information on the types that are eligible for Points with Go365.
Thank you for responding. The link you provided says the content has been deleted. I have access a document that I believe is the same, however. The document states that Runkeeper will not qualify, and I'm assuming because that's just a log of your miles not an event. Yes.Fit is an actual event (that you pay for, get swag, and some include donations to nonprofits) but you complete it on your own time, at your own location. Since this is much more like an actual event but converted to virtual, I was wondering if it counts for Athletic Events points. The doc states that virtual events count but does not indicate what the stipulations are for virtual events, only that app and device sponsored events don't count, such as Runkeeper.
I have the same question. Thanks!

I apologize for the concerns, please let me know if this link does not work either.
How can I earn points for my athletic events? Virtual athletic events are now considered an eligible athletic event.
Complete the Athletic Event Form and self-submit (via form submission protocol or through the Go365 App) within 90 days of the event completion together with one form of proof, such as the following: -Print-out of the event results, or -Race bib- both physical bib or virtual bib provided by race organizer (member name and date of race need to be handwritten or printed on the bib), or -Print-out of completion email or certificate
We will not award for App/device sponsored events do not qualify. Ex. A 5k through Runkeeper does not met the criteria above.
