Altavista On Track presents the Giblet Jog Virtual 5K! Proceeds from this event will benefit Altavista's economic revitalization efforts. Altavista On Track (AOT) exists to enhance our town by strengthening community identity, pride and economic vitality while preserving the historic district. Altavista has been a designated Virginia Main Street Community since 2007.
A virtual run/walk means you run/walk 3.1 miles. It gives you the flexibility between November 26th and November 29th to run/walk at any location at any time. We would love for you to wear your event shirt or a silly Thanksgiving costume and take a photo of you and/or your group.
Step 1. Register to run/walk the virtual 5k, and invite your friends to join!
Step 2. Pick up your t-shirt at the Altavista YMCA, 718 7th Street. If unable to pickup your shirt in Altavista, we will ship it to you in the US for a fixed $7.50 fee. If outside the US, contact us and we will quote a price for shipping. Those who sign up by November 9th, will be able to pick up T-shirts at the YMCA on November 24th and 25th. Those that register after November 9th, will be able to have T-shirts sent to them, or pick them up at Town Hall after December 5th.
