Virtual race info

The 10th Annual Bill Fortune Memorial 10k Run and 5k Run/Walk is now VIRTUAL!  What does it mean to go virtual?  A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.  You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  Complete a virtual 5K run or walk or a virtual 10K on any day between August 22nd and August 30th.  You will then have the option of uploading your results to our page.  

PACKET PICK-UP INSTRUCTIONS:  You may pick up your shirt (all events) and gaiter (10k only) on Thursday, August 20th between 1pm-6pm at Meals on Wheels of Rockland located at 121 West Nyack Road, Nanuet, NY 10954.  This will be a drive-up process, DO NOT exit your car.  Folks will be wearing masks.  We ask that you also, please wear a mask. 

We have an enormous responsibility to our walking/running community, to keep you focused on your GOALS as well as to our incredible charity partner, Meals on Wheels of Rockland, where their vision, which we share, is to see that every older adult in Rockland is living their life to the fullest.  

Have you been searching for a way to help during the pandemic?  Just by signing up for this race you are helping support Meals on Wheels provide home delivered meals to any Rockland County resident who is shut in due to illness, physical handicap or advanced age and who cannot shop or cook for themselves.  The need for this service has DOUBLED since March!  Please consider making an additional donation using the DONATE button on the race menu.  All proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels of Rockland.
