This spring, Active SWV’s Regional Fun Run Event is going virtual! The event has a youth 1-mile dash option as well as a community 5k walk/run, and is open to and adult or child in the community who would like to participate.
The Virtual Regional Fun Run event will be open from April 13th-May 24th. Within that time-frame, participants will be able to complete their 5k distance individually at their own pace and report their activity on an online platform.
It doesn’t matter to Active SWV how you complete the 5k distance – you can split it into multiple runs, do some on a treadmill, walk, run by time, or whatever else you are able to do!
All participants will receive a participation pin, and there will also be top finisher pins for 5k participants in both the ‘runner’ and ‘walker’ categories. Please note that in order to be considered as a top finisher in the 5k walk/run event, you will need to complete your 5k distance all in one go rather than in segments. Due to current circumstances, Active SWV will not be able to distribute participation and top finisher pins until June first at the earliest.
All participants will also be automatically entered in a raffle, with prizes including Active SWV shirts and water bottles.
Active SWV is also offering a 6 week Kids Run Club program for youth. This Virtual Kids Run Club provides resources and incentives to help you keep your kids active and healthy. Get started on this page; Kids Run Club – Virtual Edition.
