The virtual race allows participants to walk or run 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) wherever they are, as an individual or in a team of up to three people. Team-mates can walk or run together in person or virtually, perhaps using their smartphones.
Race Day: Any day Between 9/1/2022 - 10/31/2021: Participants can choose any day between September 1st through October 31, 2021 to complete your 5K (3.1 miles).
Course: Racers can create their own 5K route. The course can be anywhere: a treadmill, a park, along neighborhood streets or country roads. Participants are urged to use caution and be alert to pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Pace: Run or walk at your own pace.
Awards: As participants will be on the honor system and submitting their own finish times, we will not be offering our normal category awards for the virtual race.
Race Results and Photos: Participants are not required to submit a finishing time or photo(s).
