Virtual 5k

If you cannot make the Cinco de Mayo 5K run/walk in person, but would still like to support our amazing cause, you can complete the Virtual Cinco de Mayo 5k!  A virtual race is a race 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, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  All participants will receive a finishers medal, and t-shirt.

What: This is a Virtual 5K, so you choose your own course and time yourself.

When: Complete your race any time you choose. Shirts and customized medals will ship in time for Saturday, May 7, 2022 in case you have a group wanting to run together from different States like with our other runs. Make it fun and invite family and friends!

Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself. We trust you! 

Why: The virtual option is for those who can't be at the event but want to support the Latino Advisory Committee
