It’s that time again! Time to open up the registration for my next virtual 5K! If you’re new around here, I’ve been hosting virtual 5K’s to help me rase money for Team in Training as I am going to be participating in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon this October.
If you’ve never heard of a virtual 5K before, it’s basically a 5K you complete on your own at a time that works for you (instead of having to be at a certain place at a certain time). That means that people all over the world can participate in the same 5K! For all of the details on how a virtual 5K works please check out this post.
I’ve had a lot of fun organizing the past two virtual 5K’s and I’m hoping this one will be the best one yet! Why? Well partly because I have two other virtual 5K’s under my belt, but also because this one has such a fun theme – I mean, who doesn’t love s’mores!? But most of all because this race is going to have a custom medal!! I don’t have it designed yet (I’m hoping my graphic designer husband is going to help me out on this one 😉 ) but it’ll certainly have a picture of a s’more on it, as well as the race name & distance. Once it’s been designed I’ll be sure to add it to this post!
This race will take place from July 29th – August 12th to give you lots of time to get your Gimme S’More race in before I draw for the prizes!
As in the previous races, the first, second, and third prize winners will be randomly drawn for. To enter you simply need to send me a photo showing you’ve completed you’vecompleted the 5K (either an actual photo of you, something you saw on your walk/run, a screen shot of your gps tracker, a picture of your watching showing how long it took, etc.) and then on August 13th I will use random.org to choose the winners.
