What is a virtual race?
A virtual race is one that you can run, walk, use a treadmill, etc., and can really do from anywhere. Just like an in-person race, you’ll have a commemorative t-shirt, downloadable race day bib and a finisher medal to go around your neck to celebrate your success. This event is about being healthy, having fun and doing something that will give you a sense of accomplishment. You’ll have the freedom to run your own route and at your own pace on a day/time that works for you. Be sure to maintain the recommended minimum of at least six feet of social distancing and local regulations. Most importantly, you’ll be able to join others who wish to pay tribute to our Capital Health Heroes and be part of something special.
This is a Virtual Run/Walk. You can complete the 1-mile virtual run/walk, 5k virtual run/walk or the 10k virtual run/walk anytime between Friday, June 12 – Sunday, June 28, 2020.
You’ll have the freedom to run your own route, at your own pace, on a day/time that works for you. Just be sure to maintain the recommended minimum of at least 6 ft. of social distancing while adhering to local regulations.

1) Who can enter the race?
The short answer...EVERYONE. This is a perfect event to do with your family, friends, co-workers, classmates, or by yourself. You can live anywhere in the USA to participate.
2) How do I sign up?
Just visit the sign-up tab above and enter in all necessary information for each registrant. You’ll have the opportunity to choose your t-shirt size. Your medal and shirt will be sent directly to you.
3) If I register my family, do we all have to do the same event? In other words, is it ok if some do the 5K, while others do the 1-mile?
You can all do different events! Mix it up any way you like.
4) Are any awards being given for fastest times?
This is a virtual run and is just for fun (i.e., not a sanctioned race), but you’re more than welcome to enter your final time by visiting here. You can also download a printable certificate when you’re finished! You do not need to enter your time as proof, but it’s always fun to see how you did. It’s completely optional. You can do so after you’re finished by visiting the RESULTS tab of this race and entering your time, you will then be able to download your Finisher's Certificate.
5) Does the race have to be done in one day?
You can do it all at once if you’d like, but you’re also able to do it in increments. For instance, if you registered for the 5k (3.2 miles), you could do a mile a day for three days. It’s completely up to you!

Merchandise will begin to be mailed out on the week of Monday, June 20, 2020 but please allow 3-5 days for USPS to deliver. Anytime after June 20, we will endeavor to send out your merchandise within 7 days. Please note that all sales are final. We cannot offer exchanges or refunds.
