Events
1 in 5 people will experience sexual violence in their lifetime

One in Five 5K

The One in Five 5K has gone VIRTUAL!

As COVID-19 spreads and health officials warn against large gatherings of people (and because the safety of our supporters, clients, and staff is always our top priority) we are sad to announce that it will be impossible for us to assemble at Thomas College on April 26, 2020.  
After careful consideration, we have determined that the 9th annual One in Five 5K should go VIRTUAL!

Race Website

Additional race information can be found at http://www.silentnomore.org/one-in-five-5k.html.

Description

You will be able to run or walk at your own pace and choose when & where you do it.  You can go outdoors or use your own treadmill.  It's up to you!  You won't have to worry about where to park, where to put your things, or whether you're going to make it to the finish line by 9:00 AM on a Sunday morning!  (Hey, we're trying to look on the bright side!)

You can literally participate anytime between April 26 and May 10. The price will not increase.

The first 300 registrants who sign up before April 10 (Free T shirts are extended to April 12 due to the recent wide spread power outage)  are still entitled to their free t-shirt but they need to be picked up.  If you are unable to pick up a t-shirt in Winthrop Maine please select the appropriate option. This will help us when it comes time to place our order.  Thank you for your understanding.

Due to the unexpected, quick change of plans, the results of this race will be based on the honor system; and no medals will be awarded by age categories.  You will still have the option of timing yourself and submitting your results to us for upload or simply letting us know that you have completed the 9th annual One in Five 5K.  

Trophies will be awarded for the following:

  • The Largest Team

  • The Largest Fundraising Team

  • The Most Creative Virtual Team

  • Top Fundraising Individual

Participants who signed up before the race was transferred to virtual will be contacted at a later date regarding the pickup or delivery of their t-shirts which will be available by April 24, 2020. Everyone will be automatically switched to the virtual race.

New registrants will have the option of picking their shirt up at our Winthrop office or donating the cost of the t-shirt back to the agency. T-shirts will not be available past April 10.

We're wishing you all an abundance of health and happiness and hope you can be patient with us as we navigate ourselves through this unknown territory.

Together, we can help stop sexual violence.  Coronavirus or not.
