The Annual Avina Run Like A Girl Half Marathon 10K 5K event is going VIRTUAL for 2020! While we will miss seeing you in person, we still want to give you a great race experience. So that you may still prepare as if your race is in person, but with some flexibility, you will have from Saturday, September 12th until the official race day of Saturday, September 26th to complete your event. Do it any way you want - on a treadmill, walking the dog, your normal route, or even go to the beautiful Scioto Mile and race there, whatever works best for you! We simply want to encourage you to get out and get active. If you choose to turn in a time, great! But it won't be required.
Here is how the logistics will work in terms of your swag. You will receive your virtual Run Like A Girl race shirt, a custom medal, a bib, and perhaps a few other surprises! If you register before August 19th we will have your swag to you before September 12th, if you register after the 19th, we will try to have your race swag to you by the 12th of September, but it is not guaranteed! An early registration means you can do a great post race selfie wearing them and touting your accomplishment. We would also like to celebrate your race with you so also submit a picture to us with an email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include in on our social media outlets.
If you would like to turn in your time simply go to https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Columbus/RunLikeAGirlHalfMarathon10K5K When on this site, choose results, then SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS, it's that easy!
For those that had registered for the event prior to July 2020, please pick an option from below so we may process your entry accordingly.
