Summer Virtual 5k Challenge
June 1 - June 30
We are excited to announce our next virtual challenge – this time it’s for the whole month of June! We want to encourage you to #getyourselfieoutside all summer long, so with our Summer Virtual 5K Challenge, you will be challenged to run one 5k every week of June and submit your results by Sunday at midnight. At the end of the four weeks, we will take the average of all of your times and announce the winners based on those averages!
Just like our earlier virtual 5k event, we will not accept any results run inside or on a treadmill. Everything must be run outside. While we want to encourage you to use the Greenway trails, you are more than welcome to run in your neighborhood or other outdoor areas. Just make sure you stay socially distant and stay hydrated!
Keep an eye on this Facebook event as we will be posting some suggested 5K routes as well as keeping an updated leader board week to week so you can see what average times you need to beat if you’re feeling competitive.
Not feeling competitive? No problem! This is all about getting outside and staying active so no matter how you are participating be sure to share with others and enjoy this with your friends (from a safe social distance of course!).
Things to know:
👟 Cost: $30/adults, $25/18 and under
👟 Every participant gets a t-shirt just for registering!
