WHAT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT?
A virtual event allows participants to complete the race on their own. You can do the run/walk where ever you like and when ever you like as long as you post your times before November 30th, 2020. You can run/walk the 5K at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing.
DO I HAVE TO RUN MY VIRTUAL EVENT ON A SPECIFIC WEEKEND?
No, you choose. You have the month of November to knock out the 5K.
WILL IT BE A SET COURSE?
Participants will be choosing their own route for the virtual event. Please use your phone, Fitbit, or iWatch to track your distance.
WILL I HAVE TO USE MY PHONE, RUNNING WATCH OR OTHER DEVICE TO RECORD IT AND UPLOAD RESULTS?
We’re going to be on the honor system for completing the event. We recommend that you use a tracking devise, so you know your time and distance you ran/walked.
WILL THERE BE A MEDAL GIVEN ONCE COMPLETED?
No, there is only a t-shirt. The t-shirt is auto printed and shipped through our partners at Printful. Emails will be sent to notify when order has been received and shipped.
WILL THERE BE AWARDS FOR THE BEST TIME?
No, this is just for fun.
CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER OR RETURN/EXCHANGE THE SHIRT?
