It is a virtual 5k and a virtual 10k that you can run on your own anywhere and anytime as long as your results are reported before the cut-off.
We’ve made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel ALL 2020 in-person My Favorite Race Events, Races.
Please know that all of us at MFRE are devastated as well. We had hoped that we would be able to put on events this fall with extra safety precautions. However, we’ve run through many different scenarios, and it has become increasingly obvious we simply cannot offer our events this fall without compromising our runners' safety and the safety of My Favorite Race Events' staff and volunteers and the quality of the races we produce. The health and safety of our runners, volunteers, partners, and local community are paramount and something we do not take lightly.
So what is next?
This event has been switched to a Virtual Only event. You will be able to enter your results on the RunSignUp Race registration site. You will be able to sign up until September 19th, 2020, and then have 30 days to complete your run and submit your time.
We will still be awarding the awards to our overall winners. The male and female overall winners will each receive a plaque and free entry into next year's event.
We will also be awarding each age group winner a 50% off coupon toward next year's event.
We will have a packet pick up where you will be able to pick up your packet, including your race shirt, medal, and race bib.
We will be having a Fun Run at packet pickup where, if you would like, you can come prepared to go on a Fun Run. (This will be on your own). Publix will be providing bottled water, bananas, and granola bars for after your run! The date and location will be announced soon!
Overall Youth Male/Female will have prizes as well.
Age group awards will go to the winner only!
There will also be awards for all the Masters' Categories.
There will be a custom finishers medal for every finisher of both virtual races.
