Virtual Race Info

We have been evaluating the COVID-19 situation on an ongoing basis with the health and safety of our runners as our prime consideration. While we don't see a way to safely go forward with our normal in-person event on June 20th, we have transitioned to the next best thing by going virtual for 2020,

We won't be together in person, but we can be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community and the passion we have for fitness and helping the kids who are being fed by Blessings In A Backpack. Feeding children from food insecure households is more important than ever in the current environment, and we are committed to the continued support of the organization's critical efforts in our community.

We will ship your race shirt and race bib!


It's simple. Go out and run an 8K (4.97097  miles or thereabouts) anytime between June 20 and July 4. You can run in your neighborhood, on the trails, or on a treadmill. Just make sure that you maintain a safe distance from others.  If you plan to submit your results, it's best to use a GPS Running/Fitness app like Map My Run, Strava, or a Garmin watch or other timing device. For more fun and seamless results reporting, download the RaceJoy app.


The VIrtual One-Mile Fun Run is even easier.  Just go out and and run or walk a mile. You're improving your fitness and helping those Blessings in A Backpack kids.  WIN-WIN!!
