More about VIRTUAL Runners and Walkers
Virtual runners can run a 5K (3.2 miles) and should use reliable running APP like Strava, Map My Run, Nike Run Club, etc. Once the run has been recorded on the running app, virtual runners can upload the running app information (and any photos of their run) onto our RunSignUp.com site by midnight on Sunday, September 24, 2023.
Virtual walkers can walk 2 miles anywhere, and please upload photos of your walk onto RunSignUp.com. Walkers will not be timed, and it is simply an opportunity to get outdoors, walk and enjoy the exercise for a great cause!
OUR GOAL: RAISE $75,000.00 | PRIZES FOR 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD PLACE RUNNERS | TEAMS WELCOMED!
