How The Virtual 5K Works:

How does a virtual race work:

  • Sign up for the event anytime before 9/24
  • Choose your own race day and time between 9/17 and 9/24
  • Pick a location like your neighborhood, a local park, or even a treadmill and choose to run/walk alone or with family and friends
  • Time your run/walk using any device (GPS app, watch, phone, etc.).  Please be mindful of your time and distance to ensure that you are able to submit an accurate record.
  • Submit your finishing time to the Results tab for the 5K, or by electronic submission options (instructions will be sent via text and/or email after registration confirmation)
  • Be sure to take photos to celebrate your run/walk and upload them to your race album on the Photos tab
  • It's all that easy!  And, most importantly HAVE FUN!
