Questions & Answers about a ‘Virtual Race’
What is a virtual race? How does it work? A virtual race can be run, or walked anywhere (even on a treadmill, or indoor track!).
Simply register for the Anywhere 5K, then run, or walk whenever, and wherever you choose! When you are ready, submit your time to our virtual race ‘Leaders Board.’ The first 100 registrations will receive a Race for Freedom medal. We will send out medals about every week.
Can I walk? Do I have to do the distance all at once? Run, walk, or skip! It is totally up to you! This ‘virtual race’ is less about rules, and more about joining together for a cause while reaching your personal goals! You can finish your 5K in several outings, or one. It’s up to you! If you spread your 5K over multiple days, just add up your time and be sure to submit it to the Results Page!
What if I don’t complete the run during the given time? We understand! It is totally up to you to finish, or not finish your 5K. Medals will be sent out to the first 100 registrations beginning April 15th. We do not send medals based on how, when, or if you’ve completed the run.
How do I track my distance and time? There are many great (and free!) GPS apps for smart phones that will help you track your time and distance outside. Submissions to the Results Page are honor-system based. So track your time and distance the best way you can!
Who receives a medal, and when? We will send out medals beginning April 15th. Medals are limited to the first 100 registrations, so don’t wait! You also have the option to not receive a medal, if you choose. Just select that option at registration.
Where do I submit my results & photo? Right here!
How much of my registration fee goes to Messenger Rescue? It is always our goal to raise enough sponsorship money to donate 100% of your fee. Currently, all but shipping your medal is covered – $21 (84%) of your $25 registration fee will be used to fight human trafficking. We will update this number as sponsorships come in to cover these expenses.
The 2017 Race for Freedom 5K Run/Walk benefits Messenger Rescue – an organization working to end human trafficking.
