Timed 5K with RaceJoy

You have the option to participate by using the RaceJoy app on your phone. Simply download the free app, and search for "Elves for the Shelves." There are two ways to use RaceJoy as part of this event. Both options will require you to enter your assigned bib number in RaceJoy. 

  • Run the "Official 5k Course." This course starts and ends at Radnor Memorial Library. Check out the 5K course map below. The app will give you prompts to follow the course and record your time in the leaderboard on the Results page. If you run the course more than once, RaceJoy will record your most recent time in the leaderboard. 

  • Run the "5k Anywhere" course using RaceJoy. Simply go out and run, and RaceJoy will track your distance. You will receive prompts after completing each mile and at the end of the 5k. Your time will display in the leaderboard on the Results page. If you run the course more than once, RaceJoy will record your most recent time in the leaderboard. 

Participants can also simply time themselves and manually record their time on the Results page in the "Official 5k" or "5k Anywhere" result sets. Participants who do not want to appear publicly on the leaderboard can set their profile to "Anonymous."  Click on "Profile" (under the "Donate" button) and then "Edit Profile." Check the box, "Show as anonymous in public participant lists and race results." 

The total distance around Radnor Township is 16.03 miles. Make it the total distance around the perimeter of Radnor Township and you will be eligible to win some amazing prizes! 

You can log your miles on a treadmill, Peloton, in your neighborhood, on the Radnor Trail or anywhere you like! Be sure to enter your mileage on the Results page under the "Virtual Move-A-Thon" result set. You can enter your mileage each day, or all at once. 

Participants who do not want to appear publicly on the leaderboard can set their profile to "Anonymous."  Click on "Profile" (under the "Donate" button) and then "Edit Profile." Check the box, "Show as anonymous in public participant lists and race results."
