It’s Gerald Casale here for Devo. These Pandemic times require devolved solutions. You’ve got to be quick on your feet to go forward and move ahead. So, Devo’s 4th annual 5K race is expanding beyond Akron and going virtual. This year you can run / walk / crawl or Shrivel Up anywhere in the world!

Devo wants everyone who runs or walks this year while outfitted in the 5KDEVO gear to document their participation via social media. Then the 5K organizers will tabulate the World Wide Race results for everyone to see. I collaborated on the designs for the entire package this year so of course I think this is the best looking 5KDEVO gear ever!! ha ha.

Anyway, it’s simple. There are two registration options – The Duty Now Edition and The Spud Edition. Both options get you a shirt, sticker, race bib, and finisher medal. The Duty Now Edition gets a 5K (3.1) oval sticker. The Spud Edition gets a 0.0 oval sticker.

Here is how it works. Register between August 10th and November 6th . Select either the Duty Now Edition or the Spud Edition. The organizers will send you your shirt, finisher medal, oval decal, and race bib starting on October 26th. Run / Walk your 5K (Duty Now Edition) or just do a Couch Potato NOTHING (Spud Edition) by November 14th. Let the 5K officials know how you did and they will add you to the race results. Make sure you wear your gear and document it on your favorite social media platform.

Duty Now for the Future.


Shipping - We will begin to ship your items later this week. It will take many days to ship everything. If you have more than one runner in your household and you only receive one box....relax. Each runner will receive their own package. They might be sent on different days. IF you ordered additional shirts, stickers, masks, etc., they MIGHT arrive in different boxes on different days. Don't worry...we have your complete order. We are backlogged on a few shirt sizes as of TODAY but hope to have everything before race day. You will ALL at least receive your basic race kit (event shirt, medal, race bib, and sticker) before race day of November 14th.

International Orders - We are shipping your items first. Depending on where you live, customs will treat the packages differently. Our experience is that most of you will receive your stuff before November 14th, but if you don' is tied up in customs. Please be patient.

Run / Walk / Compete - You may run / walk this event ANYTIME starting today. IF and ONLY IF you want to be included in the results and eligible for Overall and Age Group Awards, you must submit your time (see below) to us by 3:00pm USA Eastern Standard Time on November 14th. Earlier is ok too. Times that are submitted AFTER 3:00pm USA Eastern Standard Time on November 14th will be included in the results but not eligible for Overall and Age Group Awards.

Awards - We will review the times you submitted. You may be asked to verify your time by sending us your GPS data (Garmin, Strava, MapMyRun, Suunto, etc). If you have never tracked your running time we suggest downloading the MapMyRun app and follow the instructions on how to record your run. IF you don't think you will be in the top 3 Overall or in your Age Group we DO NOT NEED to verify your results. Just send us your time.

Results - Send us your name and finish time in an email to anytime up until 3:00pm USA EST on November 14th. You can see the results compiled at
