Virtual 5k


The Dog Days Virtual 5k

July 11-12, 2020


Don't let the events in our world today keep you from being active!

We need to practice social distancing but not isolation from activity. Here’s your chance to get racing and complete a 5k your own way. – against yourself.  This is a virtual run/walk race where you get to choose the time, and you get to choose the place!!

Where does this race take place? Anywhere!!!

Run a 5K (3.1 Miles) course over the course of the weekend of July 11-12.

For a more challenging course, try a hilly one. Or, for a fast PR, go for the treadmill or run down a hill!

Like to run to the sounds of chirping birds, or under the glow of the moon? You pick your own start time!

Let us know how you did, and get savings on running gear from SPARK Bike Run Sports, and maybe win a prize in our raffle!

A portion of race proceeds to benefit Feeding America
