Once you run and time your virtual race, you will submit your time on our website glbas.org and will will compile the times and declare the winners in each division male/female 5k run/walk without dogs and 5k run/walk with dogs.  We have the medals ready to go!  We are still on track to provide a great race and look forward to a beautiful course highlighted with fall colors and race friendly temperatures for all participants.  We have a great long sleeved t-shirt with a new fun design and a matching bandana for your dog.
