Description

Word on the Street offers hybrid options!

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to keep our community safe and healthy, Word On the Street 5K Run/Walk will offer both in-person and virtual event options for 2021. If restrictions on race day do not allow an in-person event, all participants registered for in-person may choose to transfer to the virtual event, defer their registration fee to 2022, or request a refund.

Kids' Run will return in 2022. Check the library website for other fun activities for children.

 

How will the in-person event remain safe?

  • Packet pick-up stations will be spread out to allow social distancing. Contactless pick up available on April 30.
  • Open start allows participants to choose their start time between 8 am and noon. Participants will remain in their vehicles in the library parking lot until the start area is clear.
  • Revised course eliminates busy traffic crossing. Course will be marked with route arrows. No course marshals will be present. Maps for trail run or stroller-friendly paved route will be published when finalized.
  • Separate start/finish lines reduce congestion.
  • No race timing or results will be provided.
  • Share photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using hashtag #veronawots2021 to enter prize drawing.

 

How does a virtual event work?

  • T-shirts and race packets can be picked up at the library beginning April 30. Contactless pick-up is available. Participants from outside the area may request t-shirt be shipped for a fee.
  • Run or walk a 5K any time on May 1, 2021.
  • Choose your route and run anywhere.
  • No race timing, water stop, refreshments, or traffic control will be provided.
  • Share photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using hashtag #veronawots2021 to enter prize drawing.
 

All proceeds from the event benefit the Verona Public Library Endowment Fund.
