About this event

WE HAVE HAD TO ORDER MORE MEDALS FOR THIS RACE! SIGN UP NOW AND COMPLETE YOUR RACE ANYTIME BEFORE MARCH 31, 2020! YOUR MEDAL AND BIB WILL SHIP OUT TO YOU FEBRUARY 15th!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an American federal holiday that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. This year it is on January 18, 2021. We are honoring MLK this year with our second annual “I Have A Dream” virtual race!

  • Our “I Have a Dream” virtual races can be completed anytime before March 31, 2021, even better if it’s January 18th!
  • 1M, 5K, 10K, 13.1, and 26.2 virtual running events are available.
  • A portion of every registration fee (20%) will be donated to the Equal Justice Initiative.
  • Comes with a limited-edition medal with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., that reads, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Known for delivering one of the most incredible speeches in history during the American Civil Rights Movement, among other accomplishments, things would look a lot different if it wasn’t for Martin Luther King Jr. and his efforts for achieving equality and human rights for African Americans. To honor his accomplishments, we are happy to launch our “I Have A Dream” virtual running events. This 2020 virtual race can be completed any time of the year, from anywhere, and at your own pace. The registration fee includes a race medal and bib, plus a portion of the fee will be put towards helping the Equal Justice Initiative, an organization that is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American Society. The work this organization is doing is incredible. If you want to get more of an idea of what they do, watch the movie Just Mercy.

  • Registration Fee: $25 (includes a medal, bib, and shipping)
  • Race packages will ship out 2 to 5 days after you sign up (medals start shipping out December 15, 2020)
  • Official “I Have a Dream” race swag is available HERE for a limited time only
