The Independence 5k is going Virtual this year! Get your holiday off to a rousing start by running a 5k in the safety of your own neighborhood or on your favorite trail. To make it even more fun, we've added a VIrtual1-Mile Fun Run option for the kiddies or other family members who may not be ready for a 5k.
Our low-key races are free for Steeplechaser members, so YAY!
You must be a club member on July 4th in order to get free race entry. Otherwise, it's $10 for the 5k and $5 for the Fun Run. When you register, the race fee will initially be displayed, but then will be removed as a discount as you go through the check-out process. So DON'T panic if you see the fee!
If you think you are a paid member of the club and you can't register for free, please check the spelling of the name you used to join the club, using https://runsignup.com/Club/SearchForRenew/668. The system checks for a matching birth date, so please check your RunSignUp profile. If this still doesn't offer the ability to register for the race for free, email email@example.com for assistance.
Finally - if you currently have an individual membership and would like to upgrade to "Two-In-Household" or "Family" membership in order to get the free race entry for family members, contact our membership committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Independence 5000 will count towards the FSRC Grand Prix participation award for 2020 (four races required), but virtual races are not valid for the competitive Grand Prix rankings. Results can be uploaded for the 5k, but there will be no competitive awards for the race.
HOWEVER, the Independence 5000 has a costume/spirit awards category and we're going big with this in 2020. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
Awards determined by the race director and will be mailed.
You can submit photos in several ways:
