About Our Race: Due to safety concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ronald McDonald House Race Series will be held virtually this year. Though it is difficult to make this call, the decision to keep participants safe is of the highest priority. We thank you for your support and wish you well as you embark on your virtual run or walk!

We will still be holding both the Apple Orchard 5K as well as the Show Your Stripes 5K. Both will be done virtually and you can opt to run just one or both. BUT WAIT!! We have a deal for you! Don't forget that it's a race series - just being done virtually. Register for both races and you will receive all of the swag from both races. That's right! You save $10 and get not one but two race specific neck gaiters, a 34th anniversary RMH shirt, our famous striped socks, and a voucher to the Lakeland Orchard & Cidery.

All race packages will be mailed directly to the address you provide during registration.

You run your race where you want! Run on you favorite trail or on a treadmill. It can also be done at your convenience with multiple days available for the 3.1 miles to be completed.

Registration: You can register for the Apple Orchard 5K and Combo Event through August 14, 2020. The Show Your Stripes 5K registration will be open through October 1, 2020.

How It Works: Run your 5K race at any point during the race period listed below and submit your results to or entering them at Race Results. Proof of your race results must be in the form of a screenshot of GPS data used from running apps such as Garmin, Strava, MapMyRun, etc. and must show the elevation gain from the run to be eligible for prizes. Race results which show a negative elevation gain will be disqualified. Also, race results that do not meet a full 5K distance will be disqualified.
