How It Works


  • Register through February 14

  • Please register by February 8 for an expected arrival date of February 14.*

  • Run or walk 5k (3.1 miles) wherever you like (remember to follow social distancing guidelines!)

  • Submit your results from February 12 - February 18

  • Snap a photo and send it to us, or tag @sportsbackers on social media. Use #SolemateShuffle and together we’ll make social distancing feel not quite as isolating!

* We don't like to make promises we can't keep, especially to the ones we love. Because the expected arrival date is dependent on a number of factors outside of our control, we cannot guarantee an arrival date.

Let’s Go, RVA! Our mission is to inspire active living in all corners of our community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for safe & accessible bike & pedestrian infrastructure, offer free fitness classes, support run clubs during non-pandemic times at area schools, & develop fun, new participatory events for our entire community.

Now, more than ever, our community needs to be physically active. Due to COVID-19, we had to stop all in-person events & cancel all in-person programming in the Spring 2020. Since then, we have reimaged our events & programs bringing virtual & social distancing options to our region. Please consider donating to Sports Backers, with your support, we can make this region a more vibrant place to live & work!
