Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the in-person event cancelled?
Due to the continuing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), organizations have been advised to avoid having large public gatherings at this time. In compliance with this directive, the Hinsdale Rotary Run Charity Classic has been transformed from an in-person run/walk format into a “virtual” race.

What is a virtual race?
A virtual race is almost exactly the same as an in-person race, but instead of running along the same course, participants can complete the 10K,5K & 3K run/walk races anywhere they choose.  You can race against your treadmill, take your laps around the neighborhood, or walk your dog for the day! The possibilities are endless, and YOUR 10K/5K/3K routing is up to you!

How do I register? What is the registration deadline?
Online 2020 “virtual” Rotary Run registration will close October 4th, 2020


How do I submit my “times”?
There will be no “times submitted” for this year’s 2020 “Virtual” Rotary Run”.  So, for this year only, no medals or winning trophies will be awarded. Instead, we are asking participants to please submit #’s to our race registration site.  Be creative!  Show us how you are toting up your 10K, 5K, 3K distances.

We are requesting that all participants should complete their run/walk between Sunday, September 20 and Sunday October 4th.
