Description

In consideration of the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and community, we’re hosting our annual Pharmathon 5K Run/Walk virtually this year.

For the first time, anyone, anywhere, can participate. That’s right you can participate as an individual or even form a virtual team with friends, coworkers or family. You can do the Pharmathon 5K with your fellow Buckeyes in Chicago, Uncle in California or classmates in Columbus.

Your virtual 5K Run/Walk mileage can be completed anytime from Sunday 11/1/20 through Sunday 11/8/20 at midnight. You can also choose your own 5K route, your own starting time, and your own pace. 

Please be sure to practice social distancing while participating in the virtual Pharmathon. 

Registration includes your virtual event entry and a Pharmathon neck fandana. Pharmathon fandanas will ship to the shipping address provided at the time of registration. The fandanas will be shipped on or about October 27, 2020.
