5th Anniversary (Virtual) 5k
We are so excited to be celebrating FIVE years of business in May 2020! What better way to celebrate a run/walk retail operations anniversary during a global pandemic than with a FREE virtual 5k event?!
Participants are encouraged to download our printable bib (see below) to wear during your "official" 5th Anniversary 5k walk or run and share photos or video of your experience using the hashtag #happybirthdayrunabout and #teamrunabout. Photos can also be submitted on the Facebook event.
Whatever pace you choose is your own- this is a FUN RUN/WALK and we encourage absolute beginners to join us in our birthday celebrations. In fact, we encourage "NOT A RUNNER" folks to get moving with us all this month for a series of coaching tips and helpful hints encouraging first-time walkers and runners to get out and move with us. We will be sharing our FREE one-month training plan to get you from zero to 5k (safely) in four weeks- just make sure you let us know in your registration that you want to join the beginner group!
For those interested in our Summer Speed Series, you may use this fun run as your "time trial" that we will need for your baseline fitness measurements. We will need to know your current 5k time, so using this to test your current 5k fitness is a good plan! We will not be collecting times for this event but make sure you record your time for the speed series if you plan to join us for that program.
All registered participants will be entered to win one of six local small business gift cards in a random drawing we will hold at the end of the month. Winners will be announced on our Facebook Page on Monday, June 1 and will be notified via email how to pick up their winnings!!!
