What is a Virtual 5K? Quite simply, it is a race that you complete when and where you choose! It can be run in the morning with friends on a track or walked alone in the evening on a treadmill at your gym. Select a specific time and day and jog with friends across the country or around the world at the same time.
With a virtual 5K there is no struggling to find parking, no long porta-potty lines, no stroller zig-zagging, no dodging in and out of those walking to complete the race, and, of course, you have total and complete control over whether you run or walk, do it indoors or outdoors, and what time of day you compete. Virtual 5K races are great for children because they can move at their own pace without worrying about getting trampled by those running super fast.
Perhaps, the best part of a Virtual 5K is that it supports the mission of a charitable organization. This Thanksgiving as we enjoy time with family and friends and express gratitude for our blessings, consider the excellent education opportunities we been afforded and know that participation in the Turkey Trot 5K Your Way will give students around the world the opportunity to earn a world-class education. Run or walk, anytime and anywhere that works for you, with other people or alone, and support an organization and mission that you believe in.
When you complete your race, upload your time and some of the details of your race HERE and share your videos and photos HERE. Then, check out the results from all the others who ran the race HERE. We look forward to running with you!
Thank you to our race sponsors!
