About this event

May 02, 2020
Saturday

This race is different in all the right ways.

1)      First, it’s designed to help whichever children’s charity that most runners end up selecting. (Wire2Wire Running, wanted our first-ever virtual race to benefit kids.)

2)      It’s a virtual race, so while the actual 5K route does not matter, the results will be aggregated like a traditional race. Again, YOU as a participant will ultimately select, thus determining, exactly where the proceeds go {i.e. determine which Charity gets to select Five (5) Kids whom they serve, and those 5 kids will receive some much-needed funding.}

 

All you to is this:

  • Register for the race on Active.com.  There, you will select up to three (3) different charities, from among the list, where you would to see the race’s proceeds to go.
  • Run your 5K, (or walk it)
  • Email your 5K finish time—to david@wire2wirerunning.com

 

 

 

HOW & WHEN DO I REGISTER FOR THE RACE?

  1. Open Registration—You have from April 6th until April 26 (11pm) to register on Active.com
  2. Fill in normal stuff on Active.com to register, like any other race.
  3. Optional: You’ll see the nominated children’s non-profit charities listed…be sure to select three (3) non-profits that you feel deserve some $$ help.
  4. Monday, April 27th, we will mail you your bib # and final instructions.

Event details and schedule

HOW DO I RUN THIS ‘VIRTUAL’ RACE?

 This is a real race. So you DO have to run or walk an actual 5K.  But here are some specifics…

  • Saturday, May 2nd, you’ll have a 12 hour window (7am until 7pm) to complete your 5K on any course you choose that day; this includes a home treadmill.
  • While a GPS watch or phone app is preferred to verify full 5K distance, it’s not strictly required. Just indicate that when reporting your results. Honor System, folks.
  • Got no watch/app that tracks exact distance? Maybe go to any certified course previously run, checking map/route first, then run that course. Or, go to a 400m. track and run 12 ½ laps but make sure you count correctly! We trust you, of course, but we do want accurate results.

 

HOW & WHEN DO I REPORT MY TIME FOR THIS AWESOME RACE?  

Once you’ve completed your race, you’ll have until 10pm Sat., May 2 to report your results.

Email us: david@wire2wirerunning.com

or

Text us: 678-575-0214

[Either way, we’ll send a confirmation reply telling you that we received your results.]

 

  • Please, RESULTS in-this-order: Full Name, Time, Age, Gender, Age, City, State, Bib# 

Example Stefen Prefontaine, 20:09, Male, 55, Cartersville, GA, #344  

 (An attached excel document is preferred)

  

HOW WILL ACCURATE RESULTS BE ENSURED? 

  • A GPS watch or phone app is preferred in order to verify that you have run the full distance of a 5 km. route.
  • We’ll compile the Complete Results, as if everyone had run at the same time, including age group results*, posting them on www.wire2wirerunning.com under tab “RACE RESULTS” by this time you wake up Sunday, May 3rd, and on Monday, May 4th, we will mail your requested t-shirt size. And for those who earn a medal...that’ll be in there too!
