What is a Virtual Race? A virtual race is a challenge that can be participated in where ever you are located. You don’t have to run the streets if you don’t wish to. Instead, you can walk around your neighborhood, walk or run on a treadmill in your home or gym, you can swim laps until you reach 3.1 miles, you can even participate in another race. If you are registered for another race during May, you can count that mileage for our 5K Challenge… and you are invited to go big and exceed 5K. Bottom Line: be creative, get others involved, and HAVE FUN!
Who can participate in the Challenge? Anyone can participate. However, in order to receive the highly coveted Race Medal, you must be a paid registrant of the Brotherhood Beyond Battlefield Memorial 5K Challenge.
KIDS - The kids are encouraged to get involved. Building strong kids for a strong future!
Furry Warrior – Back by popular demand – furry warriors completing the 5K with you can earn the same race medal. The uniqueness of our medal allows you to attach to their collar if you like!
