About this event

EVENT LOCATION:

You choose the time and place to start and finish your distance

EVENT SCHEDULE: March 20-28, 2021

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our running community. Guidelines are changing every day and new challenges presenting themselves in this new environment.

The health and safety of both our participants and their families remain our primary concern. Based on our risk assessment, available resources, and the ability to obtain the permits to hold an event this size, we have joined partnership with The Lovelace UNM Rehabilitation Hospital to bring you the Rock - Walk and Roll Virtual Event to support the Bain Injury Alliance of New Mexico in an effort educate our community about brain injury services and support.

RunFit prides itself on being able to provide a safe and positive race experience for everyone. While we would love to see each and every one of you at our finish line in-person, at this time your health and safety is more important.

We know, crossing the “finish line” without crowds of people cheering you on is not your first choice. But it’s the safest thing to do at this point and time and COVID-19.

March is national Brain Injury Awareness month! The Lovelace UNM Rehabilitation Hospital is partnering with RunFit and Fleet Feet to support the Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico in an effort educate our community about brain injury services and support. Register today for our virtual fun run/walk event that you can complete anytime between Saturday, March 20 through Sunday March 28! All proceeds benefit the Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico.

Brain injury is unpredictable in its consequences. It affects who we are and the way we think, act, and feel. Brain injury can change everything about a person in a matter of seconds. The most important things to remember are:

· A person with a brain injury is a person first

· No two brain injuries are exactly the same

· The effect of a brain injury are complex and vary greatly from person to person

· The effects of brain injury depend on factors such as cause, location and severity

At Lovelace UNM Rehabilitation Hospital, we treated 220 individuals with traumatic, non-traumatic, and other neurological injuries in 2020. 84% of those patients were able to return home with loved ones and family to continue the recovery associated with brain injury. Lovelace UNM Rehabilitation Hospital offers a Brain Injury Program certified through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). This is the only CARF certified Brain Injury Program in New Mexico.

RUN ROCK AND ROLL

Q&A

Here are answers from our first Q and A session about the Run Rock and Roll:

  • Can I still register for the Run Rock and Roll Virtual Run? YES! All the 2021 events are virtual, and registration is still open for the 10K, 5K and 1-Mile.
  • If the State of NM lifts the COVID-19 restrictions, will you offer a live – in person – event? No. The inaugural Run Rock and Roll is currently a Virtual event with no plans this year to become live.
  • Will there be packet pickup? We are planning on a packet pick across several days. Packet Pickup information is located above, please see “Packet Pickup.” Note: All registrants will receive the information through their runners “Participant Information” that will be emailed out and can be found on the RunFit website: www.irunfit.org.
  • How will this event be timed? Record your race time using: Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun, MapPedometer.com or a simple stopwatch . There will not be any official timing system set up.
  • Will the course still be shared with the runners if we want to run that route ? Yes. If you are interested in running the course, please email us using the contact information below. Note: You must follow traffic signs and abide by all rules of the road. There are no mile markers, barricades or course signage along the course and you assume all risk.
  • If we do the run virtual, will we still get the shirt and the medal? Yes! You will receive a race bib, finisher medal and event tee shirt.
  • What will the accountability procedure be to “prove” we ran the distance? You are on the honor system this year. There is no prize purse, so no one’s running for the money. Unless you made a wager with your friends, but that is on you. Strava dopers, do your thing, but that is not really the spirit of the event.
  • Will time limits still be put in place? Sort of, but they are generous! We are opening the completion window from March 20-28, 2021.
  • Will there be medals? If so, how, and when will they be received? All participant will receive a finisher medal to be picked up at Packet Pickup or mailed to you (Please note: If you choose your packet to be mailed, please select the “shipping” when you are registering. The packets will be mailed to address you provide when registering).
  • Is there a nonprofit or charity tied to the event? You bet! The Brain Injury Alliance of New Mexico:
  • Will there be mile markers to help me stay on course? We will not post formal mile markers on the roads, but mile markers are listed on our published maps. And again, the official course will NOT be coned, marked, or closed to traffic. If that is the route you choose to run, then you take full responsibility for yourself and your actions.
  • What about flexibility in start and finish time? Yes! We are essentially opening the completion window from March 20-28, 2021.

As we get more questions that benefit the group, we will add them here. We look forward to sharing this experience with you come March!
