Out of an abundance of concern about the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and  sponsors, RMHC will adhere to CDC requirements set in place. This includes social distancing, mask mandates, and staggered start times. Participants are asked to wear masks before and after event. Remove only during your time running. Please vacate the park once you are finished with your run. We continue to monitor the situation, and therefore runners will be notified as we get closer to the event regarding packet pick up times and post awards and medals.

Virtual 5K Option - As a virtual 5K, you select your race course. You can walk, run, or use a treadmill.  The race will be held Friday, April  2nd – Sunday, April 4th.  You choose which day you want to run or run multiple days. Instead of gathering at Red Gate Farms, we encourage you to run 3.1 miles individually, wherever you are. Different streets. Same weekend. Same mission.  Race award certificates will be mailed.  

We will be recognizing all registered participants -  Awards will be given out to all age categories; including overall winners and all registered participants will receive a packet pick up gift bag.  In fact, since we have a virtual option, please encourage your runner friends to join the fun.  During the race, we want to see you running on Facebook, Instagram, and cheering for other runners.  Post you pictures on #redshoesrun and tag us on Facebook at  www.facebook.com/rmhccoastalempire

How to submit your time if you participate in the Virtual 5K -  All race times need to be submitted by midnight Sunday. You can run multiple days if you choose, however your best time will be recorded for your age group and overall times. 

Don't like to run? You can still support the Ronald McDonald House and the families and children we serve, from the comfort of your own bed. Turn your registration into a donation with our Sleep in for Families registration. Your registration will include a FREE McDonald’s value meal coupon, and a Red Shoes Run bandana!
