Virtual Race Info

We are evaluating the COVID-19 situation on an ongoing basis with the health and safety of our runners as our prime consideration.  While we believe that we will be able to hold a safe in-person event, we understand that some of our runners and supporters may not be comfortable yet with outdoor gatherings.  Or maybe you are not available to participate on race night in Walkersville.


For optimal flexibility, sign up for our Virtual 8K or our Virtual One-Mile Fun Run/Walk and support Blessings In A Backpack!

We will ship your race shirt , and your digital race bib may be downloaded from RunSignUp  at:   https://runsignup.com/Race/FindARunner/?search=&eventId=455513&raceId=55318


It's simple. Go out and run an 8K (4.97097  miles or thereabouts) anytime on race weekend (June 19 and June 20).  You can run in your neighborhood, on the trails, or on a treadmill.  If you plan to submit your results, it's best to use a GPS Running/Fitness app like Map My Run, Strava, or a GPS Sports Watch.
