Legacy of Life Hawaii Iron Butterfly Virtual Challenge - 5K Your Way

Sat July 18 - Fri August 14 Honolulu, HI 96817 US

Why is it called the Iron Butterfly Challenge?

The monarch butterfly is a symbol of organ donation representing change and transformation to new life. The name Iron Butterfly Challenge takes it one step further to add the symbols of racing, good health (and fun).

What is a Virtual Race?

Unlike a live race with a designated physical course and fixed start times, a virtual race allows you to choose your own course, start at your own convenience and report your results online whenever you finish. With the Iron Butterfly Challenge, you can complete your course in one session or break it into multiple segments over the course of up to nine days.

How does a virtual race work?

  1. Register here on runsignup.com to walk, run, or paddle. 
  2. During  (and after) signup you can create or join a team if you want to participate virtually with friends, family, or other groups.
  3. Choose your own starting line, whether it’s a treadmill, the beach or a neighborhood street.
  4. Walk, run, or paddle the 5K (3.1 mile) race distance wherever you are. Please follow your city/county’s recommendations on participation in outdoor activities and be sure practice social distancing. If it's easier or more convenient, you can complete the course over several days (July 18-26).
  5. Be sure to post selfie photos of you and your team on social media! 
  6. When posting to social media, be sure to let us know what our life-saving mission of organ, eye and tissue donation means to you and include the hashtags #IronButterfly5K #DonateLifeHawaii so we can find your posts!
  7. When you’ve completed your 5K challenge, upload your start and finishing times and your route data (optional) on the race website.  
  8. Within a few days you’ll receive your finisher medal in the mail!

If there is no designated route, how do I know when I reach 5K?

5K is 3.1 miles. You can plot a virtual race course on your computer using Google Maps. You can also download a smartphone app such as Strava or Paddlelogger and track your distance automatically as you walk, run or paddle.
