Virtual Race for Earth Day




A 5K and 10K will be conducted any time during the month of April, even better if it is on Earth Day, April 22, to raise funds for an environment nonprofit. Contestants receive a beautiful Earth medal made of stained glass.

At least 15 percent of every registration goes to Wild Earth Allies. Their mission is to protect vital areas of our natural world for the benefit of wildlife, habitats and people by inspiring collaborative action.

A virtual race can be held any location. Participants may run, jog or walk on the road, the trail, the treadmill, at the gym or the track, or even at another race, and time themselves. The medal will be shipped directly to the participant. They may complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon or more.

Cost is $18, which includes a medal, official bib and shipping. For more information, contact:
