Virtual Race FAQs

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race has everything you love about community 5Ks without the early morning wake-ups, struggles to find parking, or massive crowds at the starting line. Sign up for either the 5K Run or 1 Mile Walk option, and then on race weekend (July 17-20), download your virtual race bib and complete your race distance whenever and wherever you want (even on a treadmill!) Of course, make sure to refer to the CDC's social distancing guidelines to stay safe and healthy during your race. After you complete your designated race distance, upload your time to our results page and see how you stack up against your friends, family, and longtime running rivals. Then share your accomplishment! Take a post-race selfie or post a picture of your unique race route with the hashtag #runformaslows and connect with other runners/walkers in Run for Maslow's virtual race community.

Who can participate?

Anyone and everyone! We encourage participants of all ages and fitness levels. 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk options give you flexibility to choose the right race for you, and prizes will be awarded both to the top 3 male/female finishers for each distance and randomly selected runners/walkers.

What do I receive with my registration?

All participants will receive a free printable virtual race bib and customized finisher's certificate. You'll also be entered into a raffle to win one of two $50 Athleta shopper cards, ten $15 gift cards provided by Tri-State Running Company, as well as a grand prize of a free pair of shoes! Finally, you'll know that you are making a contribution to an incredible Cincinnati organization during a time of great need.

How do I upload my time?

How do I get my T-shirt?

Where does my donation go?

100% of donations go directly to Maslow's Army, a 501(c)3 organization that focuses on outreach efforts to support people experiencing homelessness in Cincinnati.
