LOOP THE 'LUPE VIRTUAL RUN!
Run / Walk / Obstacle Course FAQs:
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN / WALK?
A Virtual Run is an event you can complete Anytime/Anywhere! There isn't a set time or place since virtual runs are meant for you to complete at your convenience and at your own pace. The Loop the 'Lupe Virtual Run can be completed at any time between now and August 30, 2020, and we have a flat fee of $30 for all of our usual events (Obstacle Course, 5K Run/Walk, Senior Saunter [age 65+] or Youth Dash [age 8 and under]). We'll offer prizes to people who post the most inventive and creative photos and videos of themselves participating, here on our Facebook page!
During the pandemic, our goal is to provide you a safe way to stay healthy and active, while gathering your support of the social outreach work of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in West Seattle. Your involvement makes a difference!
WHERE DO I COMPLETE MY EVENT?
Anywhere you'd like! Because this race is virtual, you can run outside, inside, on a treadmill, on your favorite trail, or throughout your neighborhood. Challenge yourself (and your whole family) and tackle your own backyard obstacle course, run full-out for a 5K, or just keep it to a gentle walk for the Senior Saunter.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE AS A TEAM?
It's easy! Choose the team registration option for any of the challenges you'd like to participate in, create a team and invite your friends to participate! A team consists of 2+ people, and we'll include prizes for best team name/involvement/participation when you post on our Facebook page!
WHEN AND HOW CAN I GET MY SWAG?
This year, we're offering all participants not only their own tech t-shirt, but also a runner's buff with the Loop the 'Lupe logo. T-SHIRT SIZES MAY BE LIMITED FOR REGISTRANTS AFTER AUGUST 9, SO SIGN UP TODAY! You can use the buff as a face covering during the pandemic, and use it for many years to come as a neck warmer or headband! The shirts and buffs will be available for pickup at West Seattle Runner (2736 California Ave. SW, West Seattle) on Saturday, August 22nd from 3-5 p.m, and at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church parking lot (7000 35th Ave. SW, West Seattle) on Sunday, August 23rd from noon to 2 p.m. At your pickup, PLEASE BRING NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS FOR WHITE CENTER FOOD BANK!
WHAT ABOUT PRIZES?
As noted above, we'll be judging our winners based on the photos and videos they present on our Facebook site. We'll also have awards for participants who bring in the most donations! Prizes from Wyatt's Jeweler's, West Seattle Runner, Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, Whole Foods Market, Avalon Glassworks, and Ounces Taproom and Beer Garden (and more!), will be awarded during the week of September 1-4! Look below in the "Prizes" section for more details.
WHAT DOES MY REGISTRATION FEE GO TOWARDS?
Proceeds from Loop the 'Lupe go towards supporting the social outreach efforts of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in West Seattle. This includes efforts to help shut-ins and the elderly, a safe parking program for homeless people coordinated by the Urban League, and work to help migrant workers in our state and their families. During the COVID crisis, support for these programs is needed more than ever! The amount of money we’re raising with Loop the Lupe is helping people of all ages and of all religious (or non-religious) backgrounds. We know it’s not just what you give–it’s where you give. Help us support a cause that’s directly focused on our local West Seattle community. Thank you!
