Festive and flexible, it’s a 5K you can run or walk from your neighborhood, nearby park, or even on the treadmill. You choose the day, time, and location. All the race swag ships straight to your door so you can focus on having a great time. Whether you make this your only 5K this fall or sprinkle it in between other races, it’s sure to become a tradition as it has for over 100,000+ since 2016!
Adulting is hard. Joining the Virtual Run is not:
There's a bunch of reasons why you should sign up now rather than wait. Here's 7 of 'em:
After you’ve signed up, join your fellow fall-natics online. From sharing training stories during the summer to photos of your run later this fall, the community that’s come together over the years is what makes it such a fun experience!
Running is great but is always better when others tag along! Create a team with 4+ friends and each team member saves $5. Start a new team now then invite your friends to join (each team member can sign themself up!)
*Team option only available within the USAStart Your Team
How’d you do? We hope it’s a new personal record! Come back here after you’ve done your 5K to enter your time and you’ll receive a sweet badge you can proudly share on social media!
