Fri November 6 - Sun November 8
Your neighborhood, your favorite trail, your treadmill!

Maryland Gold Star Mothers invite you to join us as we remember and honor our Maryland fallen heroes, their mothers and families with our Virtual 5K walk/run fundraiser.  


Registrants will run (or walk) the race distance at any location they choose (treadmill, neighborhood, local park) between November 6th and November 8th.

If you would like to be listed in the results make sure you are tracking your time and distance. You can do so with a watch or running app (example: Garmin watch, Strava App).

Make sure you run the whole distance (3.1 miles for a 5K) - you don't want to do all that work and come up short.

You will then be able to report your time via text or email (if opted in) or through the result page. Results will be automatically updated as race times come in. 

Benefits of a virtual run include: no travel, no parking, no long lines at the porta-potty and food line!

EXTRA benefit of this virtual run: knowing you are supporting Maryland Gold Star Mothers.

Thank you for your continued commitment and dedication of our Maryland Gold Star Mothers. Let's show them all how proud we are to support and honor them, and make our Maryland Gold Star Mothers Virtual 5K Walk/Run Fundraiser great!
