Mom Patrol Virtual Race Review
The Mom Patrol Virtual Race was the fourth race that I signed up for. To be honest, I really just wanted the badge. I thought it was cute.
I signed up for this race on May 9, 2020 and received the medal on May 11th. The 10k was what I elected to achieve in order to earn this medal, granted… I actually received the medal before I completed the miles. I did finally complete it though… on May 22nd.

What I Liked
There were several things I liked about the Mom Patrol Virtual Race:
I really just wanted the badge, the theme was perfect though for when I saw it. It ended up being one of two races that I bought myself for Mother’s Day in 2020. As far as price goes, it is on the cheaper side compared to other races. I’m totally down for cheaper.
What I Disliked
Much like my other Virtual Pace Series Virtual Race reviews, there aren’t many things I disliked about this race. But there were a few:
- Not Earned
- Device Sync
The biggest thing that I found annoying was that I got the medal before I even started on the miles. I prefer to receive a medal for something I completed. Getting the medal before I started made me feel like I didn’t earn it, I just bought it. I guess I pretty much did just buy it.
The only other complaint I had at the time was that there was no device sync feature. I had to manually enter my time for it… which I never did. My virtual race journal has my times because I wrote them down, but I didn’t enter it on the website or anything. I mean, why should I?
Cute…but a bit underwhelming.
So, the Mom Patrol Virtual Race was something I bought because I wanted the badge. I like the badge.
I do not regret this race at all. I knew exactly what I was getting when I purchased it so I can’t really complain about it. I like it.
