Summer Classic 5K - Virtual Edition

As the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing continues to impact all of our lives, we have made the decision to go virtual with the Summer Classic 5K. This was a difficult decision to make. We are disappointed we are unable to host the race and our traditional afterparty, however, the health and safety of our community are our top priority. 

What is a Virtual Run?
A virtual run is an event that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. We encourage people to run in the Cambridge area in their Summer Classic 5K tank top so they can be recognized and cheered on by other participants.

What else has changed?
The official date of the Summer Classic - Virtual Edition has been moved to Thursday, July 30th at 6:30pm.

Can you still make or join a team?
You sure can! The largest team will still be awarded an exceptionally tall trophy to show off on social media or around the office (when we get back there). The Summer Classic 5K has traditionally been a fun event for Cambridge area businesses. The Virtual Edition can be used in the same way. You may need to run apart but that does not mean you can't run together.

Will you still get your swag?
Yes! Your registration comes with the traditional Summer Classic 5K tank top, a pair of sunglasses, and a koozie. We are still hoping to host an in-person packet pickup however, we will follow the recommendations of health and government officials as we get closer to the event. If we are unable to do this, your packet will be mailed to you. We will send an email confirming your mailing address if this is the case. Stay tuned for more information.

Will you still get a bib?
Yes. A digital bib will be sent to you closer to the event date. 

Is there any other cool stuff included in the Summer Classic - Virtual Edition?
Heck ya'! MYSTRYDE has offered to supply a Summer Classic Zoom link on the evening of the event. If you choose, you can tune in via your cell phone and earbuds to benefit from a certified running coach cheering you on and coaching you through your 5K.

Please note: July 30th at 6:30 pm is a suggested time. Virtual events can be completed at any time from anywhere.
