We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, May 23, 2021.
Description The De Pere Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting its first ever Virtual 5K Walk/Run! We know it is not easy to walk/run a 5K, especially during these COVID-19 times, which is why we have included extra training times and prizes to get you motivated. Starting February 1st we will be offering support and information for you to use while training these next 4 months. The $25 cost includes that support and information, plus multiple opportunities for prizes and a t-shirt. While you do not have to complete the training calendars, track your miles or watch the videos, it is highly encouraged to get the full experience and to have a better chance at winning prizes! All of the specifics have been outlined on our website which will be available for you to reference at any time. Once you sign up, we will email you a welcome packet within 24 hours which will include everything you need for this program as well. If you have any further questions, call the Community Center at 920-339-4097!
Training Calendars Our goal is to help you stay motivated to reach your goal. One way we plan to do this is through the fitness calendars attached here and on our website. Every day track what you did on the calendar, whether you ran, cross-trained or took a rest day! Other things to track could be your water intake, how many miles you walked/ran, or how many steps you took. These calendars are yours to have fun with! At the end of each month, send us the saved calendar to the Community Center email by the designated due date and we will enter your name into that months drawing. One of the donations highlighted on our website could be yours!
Top Mile Winner Track the amount of miles you walked/ran while training the next 4 months for the chance to win a prize! When you submit your 5K time during race weekend, there will be a section to include your total miles. The participant with the most miles will be awarded!
Race Weekend All of this training will be tested May 21-23, 2021. During these 3 days, wear your t-shirt, walk or run your 5K and record your time! The race must be completed within this weekend and the deadline to send in times is May 23rd at 10:00 pm. The week before the race we will send an informational email to all participants with last minute information and a link to the survey where you can record your time and total training miles.
Shirts We will receive the shirts 1-2 weeks before race weekend. Once we have them ready, we will email you to come pick them up from the Community Center. Wear your shirt on race day, take a picture and tag us on Facebook!
Last day to sign up and receive a shirt is May 2! You may sign up after May 2, but you will not receive a shirt.
