A virtual race means that even though we aren't all running together in person, we can all still participate at the same time! This virtual Kids Run will look a little different than our usual Kids Run events! We won't be gathering in our usual spot in Delaware Park.  Instead, you will be running at home in your neighborhood! We will all be running it at the same time, sharing reports on the fun we had with our families, and creating community online.

For the at home race, we will not be sending out timing chips, but you can still time yourself. Plan our your 1.8 mile route, and time yourself to see how fast you can go!

Of course! This year's virtual race is open to anyone in the United States.  Just register online here and we will send you your race packet!

There will not be trophies for the virtual race- but anyone who completes the race and enters their time here will receive a personalized Finish Line Certificate!

Good question! In a typical year, we run one loop around Ring Road in Delaware Park with all of our friends, which is equal to 1.8 miles. So- just for fun, this virtual race is also 1.8 miles!
