Virtual Race

Due to safety concerns and obstacles related to COVID-19, the 2020 Rochester 5K has been converted to a virtual event. All registered participants will be notified via email addresses associated with their RunSignUp accounts of the transition, what their options are. Continue to run virtual, refund (minus and fees) or other.

The Rochester 5K organization is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit that relies solely on this 5K event for its funding and donation. The inability to host the traditional Rochester 5K severely impacts the financial health of the organization and its ability to stage traditional Rochester 5K in the years to come. With that in mind, we are asking that, if you are able, please consider participating in this virtual event to help secure the Rochester 5k future.

The Rochester 5K appreciates the support, understanding and patience from each one of you as we've navigated through this unprecedented global challenge. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the race director at
