Sunday, September 20 - Sunday, October 4 Any Town, MA 02139 US

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 Fall 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 Fall Classic 5K t-shirt so they can be recognized and cheered on by other participants.

What else has changed?
The Fall Classic - Virtual Edition can be completed any time between September 20th and October 4th.  If you opt into the results email, you will receive instructions on Monday, September 21st on how to upload your results. You can also upload your results by using the Find A Participant page.

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 Fall 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 Fall Classic 5K t-shirt. You have the option to have yours mailed or to pick it up in person.
If you choose to pick up your swag in person, you can do so at

The Asgard (350 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139) 
on Friday, September 25th from 4:00 PM-7:00 PM
or Saturday, September 26th from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The shipping of swag will begin on September 28th.

Yes. A digital bib will be sent to you closer to the event date.
