Event: 5K (Virtual)
Choose your own 5k route. From Thursday, April 7 through April 10, this is one that will be able to run/walk away from the crowd. I would encourage you to even run the course at Johnson's Orchards even before the event date or the day after. Otherwise, pick a 5K route of your own choosing and then record your time on the runsignup registration website. Include pics if you like. You may pick up your race packet on the two packet pick up day at the Bedford YMCA on April 8th from Noon - 6 pm or we can mail it to you ahead of time for an additional cost of $10. My hope is to have everyone there live on race day but I understand if you want to go virtual. Thanks for your consideration.
