Please join us for our 3rd virtual "On Your Marc" 5k Run/Walk in memory of Staff Sgt. Marc J. Small and to support Small Steps in Speech.
About: "On Your Marc" 5k Run/Walk celebrates the life of SSG Marc J. Small, a Collegeville, PA (suburb of Philadelphia) resident killed in action in 2009 while serving as a Special Forces Medic in Afghanistan. The event benefits Small Steps in Speech, a nonprofit bearing Marc's last name, started by Marc's fiancee Amanda Charney-Berardi, which assists children with communicative disorders.
When: July 31st - August 7th ("On Your Marc" is traditionally held the first weekend in August to celebrate Marc's birthday on August 4th). Run your 5k with family, friends, fur-babies, neighborhood run group, crossfit gym, and/or teammates any time between Sunday, July 31st & Sunday, August 7th. That means you have one week to support a great cause and honor our hero!
How: If you're not familiar with the world of virtual racing, no worries! Find a nice 5k loop, out-back route, trail, treadmill, or grab your family and friends to run/walk a one-mile loop in your neighborhood three times. We suggest using Strava, Map My Run, RunKeeper, Nike + Run Club, or any other app you may use to track your fitness to accurately map out your route. Record your race result by responding to an automated text (which will be sent out on August 1st) or by uploading your time at our race sign up page, under "Results". If you have any questions, please reach out to Race Directors Shawn Wherry (email@example.com) or Mary MacFarland (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Where: This is a virtual race - so have fun, be creative, and enjoy completing the race wherever you are located.
