There will be a virtual race experience for those who are not able to participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners and on site participants. You can download our RaceJoy app (see below) and your results will post on our site when you complete the 5K distance. Virtual participants not using the app will be on the honor system and manually input their time. Virtual participants will receive a shirt, print out a digital bib and finisher certificate (once their time is posted). Please note, due to the nature of virtual results being reliant on dependable cell service and honesty, virtual participant's results are for recognition only and will not be eligible for age group awards or trophies.

Q: Do I have to be in a certain city/state to do this event?
A: Anyone can do the VIRTUAL Regional Rehab 5K wherever you are, on your time between Saturday April 3rd and Saturday April 10th! This is great way for families and friends to stay active together, even if you don't live close to each other. However, if you are registered for Regional Rehab 5K-In Person event, you will need to toe the "Start Line" at The Mall at Barnes Crossing in Tupelo, MS on April 9, 2022 @ 8:00 AM.
Q: Do I have to run or can I walk?
A: You can run, walk, runwalk ... as long as you are purposefully moving and logging miles, it counts. IF YOU ARE COMPETING IN THE WALKING EVENT, YOU MUST ONLY WALK, NO RUNNING.
Q: Do I have to complete the 5K Virtual distance at one time?
A: Yes, since this is a "timed" event, you will need to complete the full 5k during one activity ... not multiple combined activities.
Q: Do I have to put in my miles outside?
A: Preferably you will be able to go outside so you can use our Live GPS tracking app, RaceJoy (see RaceJoy How To below). but if you need to complete your miles inside (on a treadmill, at the gym, etc.) that will be possible with the alternate reporting option.
Q: How do I record my miles/time?
A: The easiest and best way will be to utilize the RaceJoy app (see below) ... you simply hit start on the app and it will register your time in results when you complete the 5K distance. But, if you are unable to carry your phone; will be in a location with poor cell service; or need to complete your miles inside or on a treadmill, then there will be alternate ways to report your time. You can upload directly to the RunSignUp system. Just go to the Results Tab (click here) on this webpage and choose "Submit Virtual Results". Virtual results will be presented in a format similar to in person results, but for recognition only.
