Description

To ensure the safety of all of our participants during this time of social distancing, we have converted our 8th Kick Abuse at Kickapoo event to a VIRTUAL ONLY event. 100% of proceeds will still benefit the work of the Pediatric Resource Center. New this year- Paws For A Cause- Register your pet to #MoveWithAMission with you! 

What does it mean to be a virtual only event? A virtual event means that you can register for the event and then Walk, Run, Cycle or Dance your way to 5K (or longer)to benefit the PRC! You can complete the race anywhere (even in your own home or your favorite neighborhood route) at any time during the event time period (starting April 1st and ending May 1st).

FAQ for Virtual Races

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race can be run or walked or biked anytime and anywhere, even on a treadmill! Participants track their own time and or distance, earn medals and raise money for charity.

How does a virtual race work?
Simply register, complete the distance, then report to us how many miles you moved. After the Kick Abuse event ends (on May 18th) we will send out your shirt and medal!

How do I track my distance and time my movement?
We take results on the honor system, so track your movement distances however you like.  Some use fitness or smart watches or one of the multiple free apps for tracking distances.  Popular phone apps include Map My Run, Strava and Run Keeper

When will I get my shirt, bib and medal?
Once you register, a virtual bib will be sent to you to print.

Race shirts, commemorative bibs and medals will be shipped shortly after the event ends on May 18th.

           

Can I walk or bike or swim my miles?

You can run, walk, bike, swim, row, or even skip your miles! We are all about movement! Set your goal and keep working towards it.

 

Do I need to show proof that I completed my move miles?

No, we trust you! Our event isn’t just about moving the miles, its about raising awareness that child abuse happens here in our hometowns and that each child deserves the very best medical care in a setting where healing can begin.

 

What if I can’t complete my run during the race period?

Life happens. We get it!

At the end of the event period, we will ship medals and shirts to everyone who registered even if they didn’t submit results.

Feel free to submit your results even after the event so that we can add them to our 2020 total miles
