GRANDPARENTS DAY 1 MILE, 5K & 10K
-This is a virtual race!
Did you know that National Grandparents Day is September 9th? We are celebrating with our first annual Grandparents Day 1 Mile, 5K & 10K! Gather your kids and your friends and celebrate all of the amazing Grandparents out there! The medal says, “Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children,” – Alex Haley. You have the entire month of September to complete your race.
Plus, September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and at least 15% of every registration will go to ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer, which is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer. ZERO advances research, improves the lives of men and families, and inspires action. ZERO has been on the front lines fighting for a cure for more than twenty years.
*For a limited time get an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE.
What: This is a 1 mile, 5K & 10K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate GRANDPARENTS!
When: Complete your race any time in September 2018, even better if its September 9th!
*Medals and bibs will begin shipping out mid-August. If you sign up after that your medals will ship within 2 to 5 days of signing up.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Why: Because this is our way to celebrate all of the amazing GRANDPARENTS out there!
Cost: The price is $18 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
